e-bok on how to build with K'Nexhttp://www.instructables.com/id/Incredible-KNEX/


Here is what I found on Wikipedia
K'NEX can be used to construct innumerable creations because many different pieces can interlock at different angles and directions. From miniature cows to complete table sets to roller coasters,[11] many objects and contraptions in various sizes can be constructed. Because K'NEX pieces are made of a strong plastic and interlock, these constructs are usually quite sturdy.
Many hobbyists have included low-power servo motors and wheels other than K'NEX in their constructions. Even real bikes (complete with bicycle wheels) have been constructed with K'NEX.

Educational Products[edit]

While all K'NEX Building Sets are educational, the company also carries a line of products that are targeted for use in the classroom. This includes building sets for creating DNA models, simple machines, life cycle models ("life cycles kit"), and geometry tools, among many other items.[12] These sets are presumably designed for preschool to high school -aged students.

Price range[edit]

New K'NEX sets can be found in many toy stores as well as online, with prices ranging from under $10 for basic packages[13] to $1,000 for a kit to build a full-sized grandfather clock.[14]

Albino Animals are not like the others in the wild they are seen peculiar by their own species and noticed by predators they may end up with health problems and vision problems. Their rate to survival in the wild is virtually zero and as to finding a mate can be slim to none for most species.
