Christmas is just around the corner and my son has already circled items he wants from the store toy books that came in the mail. The K'Nex playsets have been heavily featured this year and of course these are items on my son's wish list. The K'Nex playsets are so imaginative and actually fun for adults and kids alike because they often feature fun character's or games that we already know and love. For example, the Mario and Bowser Ice Racing Building Set is based on the Mario Kart Wii game. We actually have the Wii game and so seeing the game come alive with K'Nex is really cool.
We received the K'Nex Mario and Bowser Ice race playset for review and as soon as the box arrived my 7 year old son got to work putting it together. The quiet while he put together the set was bliss but soon enough the battery powered Mario and Bowser motor Karts replaces the quiet with fun filled laughter. You do have to provide your own batteries which was not a problem for me as I always have a stash ready. Its crazy how fast the Karts go on these regular batteries. The 14 pieces of buildable,
interconnectable track creates a closed loop for the Karts to race around. The track provides 2 moving obstacles: Penguins
& Shy-Guy Snowboarders which add some fun when the super-fast motor Karts blasts around the track. There are also 2 collectible items from the game: a
star and a blooper! I love how you can combine this set
with other sets from the Mario Kart Wii Series to build even bigger
We give this game a big thumbs up. This Christmas engage your children's minds with imaginative toys. Purchase your K'Nex Nascar building sets and Mario figures online at the K'Nex online store or checkout at Amazon.
