This 8,550-piece K’Nex Ferris Wheel will certainly test your building skills. Standing at over 6 feet high (1.8m), it’s their largest model yet. Follow the colour-coded instructions to put it together, then connect it to the AC adapter supplied and watch it go round.
The easy-to-follow instructions let you connect it a piece at a time, so you can build it in stages. It’s a great way for teenagers to learn about design and engineering principles and will give you immense satisfaction when complete. Seeing it rotate round – perhaps filled with LEGO figurines – will be an impressive sight, especially with differently coloured rods and connectors.
Made in Pennsylvania, USA, by a family-owned company.
Includes: 8,550 K’Nex pieces, rods, connector; plug-in motor with AC adapter; full-colour instructions.

While absent-mindedly fiddling with some straws at a wedding party in 1990, Joel Glickman had an idea. Over the next two years, he developed the deceptively simple rod-and-connector design that makes K’Nex construction kits so versatile, addictive and popular. Wheels, pulleys and gears began to encourage ever more creative designs, and now the biggest K’Nex kits contain ingenious gadgets and dozens of moving parts.
With over 31 billion K’Nex pieces produced since 1992, the possibilities of K’Nex constructions are endless. From simple, snap-together cars and planes for young children to enormous roller coaster recreations for ambitious adults, each K’Nex kit delights and engages with its bright colours, big ideas and easy-to-follow instructions.More from K'Nex
