K'nex MarioKart Wii Building Sets

The truth is, LIFE is a race. Not to get too heavy on ya, kid. But if you wanna win you gotta play the game, and you gotta do it bigger and better than everyone else. So what if you have to mow over Princess Peach on your way to the finish line. Chivalry won't get you the gold medal now, will it?

By the way, in general:



This is the tag you'll see on products designed to arrive for the holidays.

For Woot Plus items, I would always advise picking upgraded shipping to be absolutely certain, but then I am quite a nervous wreck when it comes to shopping so close to the holidays. Generally these holiday tags won't be found on plus items because the sale tends to run several days and what may be true for buyers on Friday may not be true for people waiting to buy on Monday or Tuesday when the sale ends.

tl; dr: Shop early, consider upgraded shipping.

I'm just hanging out, really.

I got my 21 year old son a ton of this stuff last Christmas. He and my virtual son* had a blast with them.

*Virtual son: That friend that's over at your place as much as his home and calls you mom.

I've been guilty with playing with these as well, and I'm 38 now!

These go on sale for up to 70% off at Target and Walmart shortly after Christmas. Target especially will go to 70% off on clearance.

The big set is a fantastic price. My son will be delighted. I have never seen them go on sale for a price this low anywhere.

The sets in the stores are smaller sets. I have only seen the giant set at Toys R Us

Apples to oranges here - the set you've linked is the pullback motor version. The ones here are the battery operated versions.
