Wyatt was immediately drawn to the Super Mario set and begged to open it right away. It took him about 2 hours to get the set built and did really good. Hubby did have to fix a few pieces to get all the features working properly. Since we already have a few K’nex Mario figures, he was ready to play and has really enjoyed this set. He has had to reconnect a few pieces, since they come apart during play, and he likes the jumping action platforms the best. His next conquest will be Angry Birds.
