I love the BBC show Top Gear, and was thrilled when K'Nex introduced a line of building sets to recreate some of the classic episodes.

The Stig's Attack Copter and Off Roader Set is a middle level build, recommended for ages 7 and up.  There are over 270 pieces, and the instruction book is illustrated - so they can be used by anyone - but I often have trouble correlating the 3D figure with the 2 dimensional depictions , so it is very important to count dots carefully to be sure the piece placement is correct.

The finished product looks great!  Here is The Stig driving the off road vehicle.

The included sticker set gives it a great, custom look.  The wheels turn smoothly, and this piece can glide quite nicely on wood and tile floors.

The Helicopter also has some nice features.  The rotors spin, and the gun has a pull back and fire feature.  Three foam darts are included with the set.  There is a pilot dressed in olive green.  Lift up the front hatch to get him in and out of his seat.

These pieces below are also included for target practice.  Try to shoot the darts through the hole or hit The Stig for a bullseye.
