My 10 year old daughter had a great time putting this together. I had to only help her snap a few of the harder pieces together. Unfortunately, the biggest wheel is crooked and no matter how much I try to straighten it, it won't clear the base and keeps getting stuck on the base. It seems like the base isn't strong enough to hold the weight of the wheel or the base needs to be raised. When I lift part of the base it will turn all the way around and is quite exciting. I need to contact K'Nex to find a solution. We haven't assembled the second option yet. Overall we had a fun time and would recommend it.
I got this toy for my daughter for Christmas. She really likes it. I consider it educational in the way that all building toys are - it teaches about structural integrity and mechanical linkages.
The motor has some issues, however. I think it's to high speed and too low-torque. It has a tendency to spin the gears against each other rather than turn the ferris wheel smoothly. It also goes VERY fast once it gets started, so it doesn't look much like any ferris wheel I'd want to ride.
All in all, I am pleased, but see room for improvement.
Ten year old grandson absolutely flipped when he got this! Well packaged and directions were clear enough for him to put it together. The kid is really smart, but only hesitated a couple of times before moving forward. Challenging but able to complete. I'm certain that he will be delighted when he finishes putting it together. (All the pieces, motors and batteries were included)
