NEW ADDITIONS TO COOL MACHINES AND ROBOT WORLD TAKE BUILDING TO A WHOLE NEW LEVELHatfield, PA - K'NEX, one of the world's leading construction toy manufacturers, continues to expand its popular Cool Machines and Robot World building series with several new model additions. Each exciting line is enhanced with four new sets with high-tech colors that expand construction play to a new level of fun and activity.
"The response to our introduction of Cool Machines and Robot World building series was so great that we wanted to provide kids with more action packed models," said Chris Campbell, Vice President of Marketing for K'NEX. "These new models not only meet their demands, but engage kids with incredible action and fun construction play."
The action never stops with Poppin' Wheelies! Powered by a battery-operated motor, kids can construct three different roadsters that "own the road" with gravity defying wheelies! This set is geared for action with oversized rubber tires and three different durable hot rod designs. Suggested retail price: $16.99
For kids that crave fast-pasted action, K'NEX's new Formula Racers brings all the excitement of the race track home. Modeled after real Formula One race cars, this set features a 6-cylinder pistol-poppin' engine, fully functional steering and rubber wheels that help grip the track. Suggested retail price: $14.99
K'NEX's Cobra Warrior is the perfect set for kids who love flying machines. The kit's 380 pieces come together to form one giant 2 ½ foot long helicopter, complete with foam missile launcher and kid powered rotating blades. Piloting the attack chopper is a fearless K'NEXman equipped with a real working parachute. Suggested retail price: $24.99.
Cool Machines Building Sets
With K'NEX's new Cool Machines Building Set, kids can create action packed vehicles that are built to conquer anything on land or in the air!

The "King of the Robots" is back for action in 2000. Control-A-Bot is a remote controlled robot that kids can build! Once constructed, command Control-A-Bot's actions and voice with a hand-held remote control. This building set includes instructions for six different robot models that feature fully directional R/C movement and arms that can be controlled to pick things up. Suggested retail price: $109.99.
SkizzoBot and ExoBot
