K’Nex Launch Event at Nintendo World

I gotta admit, I was a bit skeptical about this event when I found out about it at the Ocarina of Time 3D event. But I was glad it turned out to be one of the best events I went to at Nintendo World over the years.

When we got there there were already a ton of people trying out the new Mario Kart toys. Downstairs is where they had the new sets they just revealed. I actually didn’t know that these were battery powered. They looked awesome put together.

At the door, they gave away these Luigi K’Nex samples. I have a few to give away later on 🙂 I also asked for more Ocarina of Time 3D launch flyers, so I’ll give those away as well.


There were built sets upstairs as well on display. Except for the Bowser set.. They had it for sale but it was nowhere to be found on display. No love for Bowser eh?

They had tables filled with Mario Kart K’Nex for everyone to try out and build.


They had 2 contests going on upstairs; fastest builder and guess how many pieces. I didn’t get any prizes, but both my son and my daughter (surprisingly since she doesn’t like building them at all) won fast builders for 7 and 9 year olds. The sets are worth $25 and $30 each!! Before we left, my son was interviewed for Nintendo Week where he explained both of the prizes he won.

  1. I’m a bit jealous, haha…Glad you enjoyed it!
    It would be greatly appreciated if you could send some Nintendo love my way! Wouldn’t mind taking a K’Nex or Zelda flyer off your hands! Be sure to hit me up!

  2. Very cool! Wish I had the opportunity to visit these events! Those K’Nex sets look great, wonder if my daughter would enjoy them, hehe! Would really like a Luigi or Zelda flyer, I believe I originally responded the first time around but they were already gone! 😉

  3. I too, as a big Nintendo collector, would love to snag anything you don’t want! Be sure to let me know. 🙂

  4. i will reveal the details for the contest later for the luigi sampler. i wanted to get more but the the same 2 people were at the door and i didnt want them to say anything that would jeopardize my stash 😉

    for the zelda flyers, i’ll think of something. i specifically asked for them and the lady brought me a lot. i dont like flyers as much, but i do love how these ones are cardboard and they look awesome.

  5. Any chance the peeps that signed up for the Zelda flyer last time will get one now? I just missed the cutoff and would really appreciate one!

  6. I tried w/ no avail to win my son a Luigi during their contest. I wasn’t successful, His birthday is Aug 16 and it would’ve been a swell surprise for him. I’m glad you had ton’s of fun @ the event, being that I’m in MO I can’t get that far away from home becuz of $ issues just put over $300 in parts on my Jeep. My son Can’t wait for all these cool toys to hit the stores, Some have but some are slated for release later this year.

  7. i was told that the toys would hit every major toy stores in the u.s. including walmarts, targets, and kmarts around august.

  8. Lol I was there, I was the one holding your sons 3DS while he had his interview with Allison…. Very awesome blog!
