The K'NEX double ferris wheel fully constructed.
K'NEX has always been pushing the boundaries of construction toys, and they have created award-winning products in the process. They aim to inspire creativity, build self-confidence, and encourage interaction among children and parents.The K'NEX double ferris wheel has two spinning wheels rotating in opposite directions.
In their Thrill Rides line, the K'NEX double ferris wheel puts the "amusement" back into amusement park. Build a towering ferris wheel constructed with 977 K'NEX bricks and Micro-K'NEX pieces. Reaching three feet tall, the gigantic gyrating wheels reward determination and imagination.
Construct the base and build the two star-shaped rotating wheels. Pivoting on one of K'NEX's most powerful motors, the double ferris wheel will spin the brightly coloured star wheels in opposite directions. The double ferris wheel takes the traditional puzzle, makes it three dimensional, and adds interactive play.
If you have had some experience with K'NEX toys, then construction is fairly straightforward, but even without prior use, little time is needed to get acquainted. Patience is important, and a child that is determined to finish puzzles will take to this toy. The double ferris wheel provides hours of fun for the little builder in your life, however, with many small plastic pieces the manufacturer recommends this toy for ages eight and up. The motor requires two AA batteries to rotate, and these are not included. --Scott Teal
