The goal in this Word Golf course is simple – complete each hole with as few strokes as possible. Strokes are calculated by the number of words it takes to finish a hole. Players can work against the course or compete against their friends. Word Golf is portable and is designed to be a fun way to expand vocabulary and spelling skills. "Word Golf combines the challenges and fun of a word game with the excitement of a round of golf!" All the King's Games Owner Kevin Greenberg told TDmonthly.

Towering over four feet high and featuring motorized lift and three exciting ball runs, the Motorized Madness is a builders dream. This set includes 2,004 colorful K'NEX pieces, new track system and five multi-colored balls. Users follow the color-coded instructions to build this exciting ball machine step-by-step, then switch the motor on to bring the model to life. The motorized ball lift continuously carries balls to the top of the tower, where they alternate down one of three different ball runs. The downward spiral sends balls down a dizzying ride to the bottom, whereas the hammer drop transports the balls off the track and onto 2 swiveling elevators, and the funnel drop sends balls on an express ride straight to the bottom. Requires two AA batteries.

Features:
  • Includes 2,004 pieces
  • Builds over 4 feet high
  • Motorized ball lift
  • 5 balls & 3 ball runs
