K'Nex amusement toys part of company growth strategy

Posted Monday, March 17, 2003 4:12 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Through their system of plastic rods, gears and sprockets, K'Nex toys let children build a range of structures and devices, from robot warriors to drag cars. The sets include bridges, simple machines and even amusement park models. The amusement park toys in particular are popular because they explore so many areas of physics.

ApolloAndy's avatar Can't wait for the rumored launch coaster kit coming up. Also can't wait to see what K'nex has in store for the future.

I spent an entire day setting up an original k'nex coaster for my brother as a christmas gift. I have been meaning to my my self one to setup. :) I hope they make more coaster and theme park ride kits.

I think I saw the launched coaster somewhere... basically it's a Hypersonic look-a-like, with spinning pinch wheels on either side on the car to propel a single car up the spike... looks fun!

very funny nascar, I built my own variation of the looping coaster a while ago, I used 3 sets and made it very tall, it just barely made it through 3 loops, then my sister threw a basketball at it. that was a sad day. I never took the time to put one together again. I'm thinking of making a working metal model over the summer. sounds more challenging than Knex.
