I review a K’NEX Build and Blast K-25X Rotoshot Blaster. Opinions are 100% my own.
I’ve had this toy for a while and had been waiting for a day where I could assemble it on my own without interruption from the kids. Eva could build it but Andrew isn’t old enough to do it yet. So without them around I could build quickly without one of the kids waiting to play with it. My build took a little over a half hour. I like the way that the K’NEX pieces fit together, they are nice and sturdy. I was unsure as to how this blaster would feel in my hands but it had a good feel. The pre-load ring was in a strange place in my opinions. I would have liked to have it all the way in the back for quicker loading and shooting. It felt a little awkward to load the darts.
Despite the pre-loading issue the blaster could shoot pretty far. the mechanism for shooting is self contained and you can pop that into many different configurations. There are 4 builds. I like the target because when you hit it it will swing back and forth. That way you know that you really hit it.
The more I play with the K’NEX pieces the more I enjoy them, there are some fun projects that you can do with them and when I have a moment to spend with Eva we will build something together. For now, check me out solo building the K-25X Rotoshot Blaster.
Here is the official description of the blaster.
