For Christmas my middle son received a huge K'Nex set from his uncle. I was a bit worried as it was for ages 9+ & said son is only seven, but he didn't let that deter him. I cautiously encouraged him as I didn't want to see him spend hours building it only to have it not work.
He worked on the project for a number of days over Christmas & then decided it was too hard & gave up. He pulled all the pieces down & we stored them away. I figured he'd use them to build other things but if he never got through the 100+ steps to build the project it was intended for, that was okay by me.
This past weekend I was gone from Saturday morning until Sunday night. I came home to find this....
Can you see how tall this thing is??? It's taller than its builder!!! While this doesn't match the photo on the box, it does work! N is pretty proud of his work (as am I which is one big reason I'm posting it here!). Didn't he do a great job, Uncle Richard???
I apologize for the side-ways view. This is my first time uploading a video. I have absolutely no clue how to fix this. If you do, please let me know! ;-) THANKS!
