As a K’NEX ambassador I received products to review, all opinions 100% my own.
K’NEX has brilliant new Pac-Man building sets based on the popular arcade game we all enjoyed as children; Pac-Man. When I saw the packaging for these sets I was like a kid in a candy store. Pac-Man has been played for hours by my siblings and me as a child, but my kids looked at me like I was strange as I was saying how cool the K’NEX sets looked. Unfortunately, they don’t understand the phenomenon of the game that gobbles pellets through a maze trying to avoid enemies such as Blinkie and Pinkie so we could advance to the next level. So this building set was all for me, nobody else!
The new K’NEX Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures building sets are based on the Disney XD series that I had no clue about. I’ll definitely be watching with my kids so they can appreciate Pac-Man and the gang.
There are four sets in the series:
Pac’s Pac World Maze
Betrayus’ Netherworld Maze
Spiral’s Pac World Maze
Cylindria’s Netherworld Maze
Just so you know, Pac-Man, Spiral and Cylindria are all Pac people and Betrayus is the lord of the ghosts. They are the stars of these building sets. They are 52 and 53 piece sets where you are going to build a maze, complete with accessories such as wall panels, blasters, trees, pellets to bomb enemies and buildable characters. We did have some issues keeping the blasters in the small hands, the characters standing and some of the wall connectors coming off, but other than that they are fun!
You’ll want to collect all 4 from the series as they attach to generate one large maze that can be customized anyway you choose, though they can be used individually as well. They were fairly easy to build as the walls are built on the square peg board type bottom and the bottom attaches to K’NEX rods and connectors.
Zoe (6) independently constructed these and has played with the sets creating various mazes often. She enjoys pretending she is in a battle defeating enemies, based on what I stated about the video game.
