The Great @K’Nex Project: K’Nex Beatles Yellow Submarine
This review of Beatles Yellow Submarine™ Building Set comes from Jojo (age 13) and Kevin (age 7)…
From Jojo: “It was hard to understand the directions and it was not organized well. The directions did have arrows pointing to where the pieces were to be put, but even that was hard to read. The other problem with The Beatles Yellow Submarine is that it is targeted to the wrong audience. (7+). No child older than 7 would ever play with this toy; and anyone younger probably doesn’t know who The Beatles are. I also think the product is not well made. Once we finished assembling the parts, some areas fell apart way too easily. In conclusion, it was poorly made, unorganized and hard to read directions. I would not recommend buying this product.”
From JoJo and Kevin’s Mom: “Unless the parent has a strong tie to The Beatles, I do not think that the K’Nex Beatles Yellow Submarine holds significant appeal. The instructions were not simple to understand and the unit was somewhat challenging to put together. Additionally the end result was not that much fun to play and fell apart too easily.
From MOAS: As Julie, said I think this product is really geared towards fans of the Beatles ~ I know my Aunt and Uncle would love to play this with their grandson, Leo ~ when he gets a little older as a way to keep him informed about the Fab 4. But I can see, if you or your kids don’t have a big interest in the Beetles, there are probably other kits that would be more enjoyable. However, if you do want more info here’s a good description from the Manufacturer: “Build The Yellow Submarine, and help The Beatles save Pepperland from The Blue Meanies! This one-of-a-kind building set lets you recreate the awesome adventures of the iconic Yellow Submarine with passengers, John, Paul, George and Ringo. They can do battle against the two Blue Meanie figures, or get out their instruments and jam, since their ship doubles as a concert stage! Includes over 200 pieces; Ages 7+.
