K’nex Ordering Options
« on: June 27, 2020, 07:41:59 am »
I don’t know where to order K’nex parts (in the USA). I never purchase anything from big box stores or unregulated marketplaces like Amazon, Walmart, Target, or Ebay. Anything purchased through K’nex User Group is shipped across the Atlantic Ocean and back in an unnecessary 8,000 mile round-trip. In addition, they said that only airplane shipping was an option on the way back, which has an extremely high carbon footprint. They also said that it would be better if K’nex could directly supply the parts.

K’nex User Group also said that Drop Shipping was not an option, as in that they could not intercept the order before it left the United States. They said their USA market share is too small to establish a smaller USA office next year (of course not this year).

This is why K’nex Replacement Parts was started, but their Terms page says anyone under the age of 18 is strictly prohibited from using their site, because they must have figured it was rated R. I contacted them, and they responded in under two weeks saying that they will consider changing their terms. But they don’t have the red 190 RPM motor or some other parts I need.

I don’t want to wait too long for K’nex Replacement Parts to change their policy, because if they don’t, then I am just wasting the opportunity at K’nex User Group, which recently lowered the purchase limit on angled orange clips from 64 to 4-8.

I got all my Knex from Marktplaats in the Nederland.
It is a site for everything secondhand.
I do not know where you live but there are secondhand sites in every country.
just google secondhand and toys and you can find sites.
