Christmas is just around the corner and parents everywhere are looking for the perfect gift for their kid. You want to get something fun and engaging but also education and fun. It is hard to find toys like this that aren’t just tossed aside a couple of weeks after they are opened. Being a mom of four, I have had my fair share of toy successes and toy flops when it comes to what we have given our kids as gifts. One of the most loved toys we have ever given them are the K’NEX sets. We recently got the K’NEX Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster and as soon as I took it out of the box, my kids started getting excited. When I told them how high it was when it was built, they practically ripped the box out of my hands and went to the table and started building it.
My 7-year-old and 9-year-old worked together to build it. I had to help only a couple of times. I loved watching them work together to create this fun toy, and the excitement when it was finally finished and worked perfectly! Here are some fun facts about the K’NEX Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster:
- Creepy Carnival theme with special graphic panels and stickers for the coaster car.
- 580 parts, including over 14 feet of track and a motorized chain lift.
- Includes easy-to-follow, step-by-step building instructions plus downloadable instructions for a 2nd coaster.
- Over 2 1/2 feet tall!
It took my kids a couple of days to build it between homework, chores, and school. Now that it is done, they play with it all the time. The K’NEX Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster is definitely a toy we recommend for Christmas this year! Build a WORKING motorized roller coaster and have fun with your kids while they build and create this cool toy.
This K’NEX Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster is available exclusively at Walmart. Get 14-feet of track that twists and turns and creates a fun crazy ride. Check out our video to see what it is like
