Dueling Racers

Dueling Racers

Dueling Racers; K'NEX, ages 7+, MSRP $19.99USD K'nex Dueling Racers set has 136 pieces; including rods, connectors and genuine K'NEX bricks. For high performance, two motors are included, one for each racer. Each Motor needs 2 "AA" batteries, not included. The recommended age is 7 and up, younger children may enjoy playing with this set but please remember small pieces are chokables. As I always say, "Playing with your kids is not only recommended but encouraged, but remember to take turns." The kit comes with instructions for two alternate race car models. The racers were so simple to create, allowing for basic to elaborate designs, dependent totally on the builder's design. The motors had a bit of power. We were impressed. The Toy Guru Crew liked that they were able to mix up the designs and race two cars all from one box. They also liked that they had so many options with just one set, they could try it out, make different things and only had add more sets if they wanted to; which they did. K'nex deserves kudos for coming up with a brilliant idea. The K'nex bricks are genius. They are compatible with all brick building systems, and this is a beautiful thing. You can now incorporate three different building systems into one stupendous creation. Wah-ha-ha! This added dimension really opens up some pretty cool building options. Children are able to use their imaginations and explore more options for their handiwork. Playing and having fun while getting an amazing educational boost, without even realizing it. Block building opens up so many areas of development; children advance physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively.

Block play enhances:

  • Small muscle development

  • Hand/eye coordination

  • Spatial relationships

  • Cooperation

  • Self esteem

  • Mathematical concepts

  • Patience

  • Sense of success

K'NEX slogan is Imagine, Build, Play; I think it is safe to say that we agree with them.
