Discover the power of levers and pulleys through the FUN of K'NEX construction!
Open up the detailed instruction book and immediately kids start learning by building eight K'NEX models of real-life tools and machines.
Build a seasaw and learn all about the basics of a lever: "The effort and resistance, one on each side of the fulcrum, move in opposite directions. When one goes up, the other goes down."
Construct a wheelbarrow to learn about the second class of levers where the weight is moved to the fulcrum, making it easier to lift.
Then, using the included strings and wheels, start learning all about the fascinating power of pulleys.
Discover the basics by building a functional flagpole. Get even more complex as you build a sailboat and a Block and Tackle contraption.
Did you know that with just a few strong pulleys and some rope, you can lift something as big and heavy as a truck's engine?
Complete with easy-to-follow, illustrated instructions and detailed explanations for each mechanism you build, the K'NEX Education Levers and Pulleys set turns basic engineering into hands-on creative fun!

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
