While Joel Glickman started K’Nex with a simple idea of a rod and connector building set, the company eventually diversified into wheels, gears, and pulleys to build an elaborate roller coaster, vehicles, and other innovative creations. The company boasts a production of over forty-two billion parts for K’Nex toy building systems, and all have been made in the United States. The company generated annual revenue of US$ 40 million. K’Nex construction toy business integrates with other companies for licensing. The company collaborated with Hasbro for the Tinker Toys and the Lincoln Logs, with Nintendo for the Mario Kart, and so on. K’Nex recently said goodbye to its licensing collaboration with the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment).
The idea behind the concept of K’Nex came to Joel when he was out to attend a wedding. Joel started wondering what he could do with a straw if he connects it to other straws, and this is when he discussed the idea with his brother, Bob Glickman. The basic rods and connectors, which are like the core components of K’Nex, could be easily attached to form different constructions. The first box of the K’Nex was launched in the market of the United States in 1993 with just a hand crack in its original models, with additions of motors and gears later on. The four big companies who were the first to make contact with K’Nex were Mattel, Hasbro, Tyco Toys, and Lego. The first-ever shipment from K’Nex was purchased by Toys ‘R’ Us in 1992.
