My favorite K’NEX moment was when I was promoted from Intern to Assistant Brand Manager. It showed me that hard work is noticed within the company and rewarded. I was also so excited to start my career, seeing as I had just graduated from college.
If you were a K’NEX roller coaster, what would your name be?
Hmm… for someone who names all our products, this is a really hard question! I would say I would be the Fierce and Fabulous Freefall Roller Coaster.

In your opinion, do you like the classic or micro K’NEX more?
Jacob, age 12
I am classic K’NEX lover. My favorite pieces are those that we just released for Mighty Makers. They are classic K’NEX pieces, but some of the rods and connectors are hot pink, purple and lime green. For some reason, I find it easier to follow the instructions and can build much faster.
