K'NEX Nintendo Mario Kart 7 Mario Pullback Glider Kart

I am more familiar with the bristle block type of K’NEX.   This toy is more Lego like than what I would consider the traditional K’NEX.   The instructions are clear.  The parts are well made.  The little pull back motor seems durable.  I don’t see a problem with a normal five year old assembling this toy.   I can’t see a seven or eight year old being interested in assembly as I suspect they would find it too easy.   It does include a super leaf which I had to Google to see what the heck that is.  It is a power-up item that doesn’t seem to have any function except hype.   List price is $16.99, $14.99 at Amazon and value wise I think $9.99 would be more realistic.  In all fairness though, it is price substantially better than similar Lego kits.  

From the vendor:
·  Build Mario? in his Glider Kart from Mario? Kart 7
·  Pull back motorized action!
·  27 pieces, including super leaf item
·  Re-usable ramp package
·  Recommended for builders ages 6+

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
