HOT TOY REVIEW: Beatles Yellow Submarine Building Set by K'NEX

I thought this building set from K'NEX was such a fun throwback with the Yellow Submarine by the Beatles theme - even funnier is this is the song we used to sing while I was pregnant with Rose over a decade ago so she has heard all about it.

Product description:
Build The Yellow Submarine, and help The Beatles save Pepperland from The Blue Meanies!  This one-of-a-kind building set lets you recreate the awesome adventures of the iconic Yellow Submarine with passengers, John, Paul, George and Ringo.  They can do battle against the two Blue Meanie figures, or get out their instuments and jam, since their ship doubles as a concert stage!  Includes over 200 pieces; Ages 7+. Suggested retail price is $34.99.  Available exclusively at Toys “R” Us.

Our thoughts on this building set: Honestly this kit was frustrating for both kids and adults alike. The instructions have no wording and the colors are not always clear - yellow on the sheet was a gold piece in the set. The K'NEX building blocks did not stick together very well - the sticks and connecting pieces stuck together perfectly but we had the hardest time getting the block pieces to stay together. I don't foresee this being a play set - it went up on a shelf to be displayed.
