what do you like more, or what did you like more as a kid
Lego or Knex
Personally i like lego as i think it looks more realistic and i played for days on end when i was younger, also knex is mainly used for guns and occasionally big buildings, but with lego you can make entire worlds!!

So far its 5 lego / 3 knex

I HAVE LEGOS MINDSTORMS.THEY ARE A PAIN TO CONSTRUCT ANYTHING WITH THEIR SMALL PIECES.
I AM CONSIDERING GETTING KNEX.
I WANT TO BUILD A BRAIDING MACHINE.IT SEEMS THAT IT WILL BE MUCH EASIER WITH KNEX,NOT SO MANY SMALL PARTS TO FOOL WITH.

I liked k'nex whent I wuz a kid.When I was 5 my mother bought me a k'nex racer set. I never really knew about legos until I was older. I choose k'nex over legos for 2 reasons: 1. k'nex have more advances than legos. 2. k'nex are stronger/sturdier than legos. Unlike k'nex, legos will fall apart,shatter,or break if too much force is applied to them. legos do have more realism than k'nex, but can you make a lego ram gun that shoots rods like k'nex? I don't think so.

People have made tons of operational guns, and from personal experience, legos are much sturdier.

Okay so Lego has its own amusement parks, two different magazines, can be more detailed, has awesome themes like Star Wars and LOTR, it has been around for over 50 years, you can build whatever the heck you want, it has a wider spectrum of building, you can make things color accurate, you can make working robots with Mindstorms, it has it s own sport (FLL) and tons of adult fans.

I don't think one is better than the other really.... Legos offer more of a solid look look while knex give you a good frame for mechanical structure. I have built simple guns out of both; mainly consisting of a clip with a pusher, a barrel, and a ramrod. Knex are a little easier to build a gun out of, this site just proves the point, while legos require more technic pieces (the pieces with holes), and I don't have a lot of those but plenty of regular blocks.

I think Kne'x Way out does LEGO for 4 reasons

1. I just think it's great!

2. It is flexable.

3. It is Mobile (Mobile as in you can make plenty of parts that move)

4. You can be more creative with it

Lego is constructing a scenery and playing in it. Then lego technic is a bit like k'nex, constructing mechanisms etc. But k'nex is all about structure, mechanism, size. Lego ain't bad, but I love to construct with k'nex.

I thought I'd commented on this already, but it seems not. Lego is far superior to K'NEX for most things, but K'NEX has some niche-advantages that Lego cannot bend to fit easily. E.g. large structures without a lot of spend, ball-machines.

Lego guns aren't so popular because you can do so much more with Lego, K'NEX guns are because there isn't that much else a person can do with it that really-rocks.

I would have to agree. Lego is what my choice was when I was younger, plus it seems like all anyone knows how to do is build guns with knex anymore. I am more of a thinker. I have mostly knex now, but would rather not build guns, or amusment rides. Those are all we'll andgood for the people who like to build them. I am allot mor int engines and transmissions, boats and cars and things like this. My builds get very large, and complicated so soon hopefully I will have pictures of my full size 16 cylinder engine and transmission. To me it isn't worth posting unless it works as close to the real one as possible. However still would like to have the lego's to build small and complicated at the same time. Would fit the space I build in now.

i think lego is better for making houses and buildings, but knex is WAY BETTER for making guns, ball machines, and vehicles.

I like Legos because they are more realistic, but it's easier to make large models out of Knex, like ball machines.
I like Knex better because it's cheaper and easier to build, mostly because they don't have a huge variety of pieces like Lego does. And it's easier to make moving parts with Knex.

Legos are superior. Knex are a pain in the but to use and they don't look realistic at all.

Knex has bigger and stronger pieces, and websites brimming with instructions for it. But still I favour LEGO!
