Class 4 article

Znap is a theme that was produced by LEGO from 1998-1999. It is similar to K'Nex (another construction toy brand), and can be used to build objects in a frame-like way. The plastic by which the parts are made of is somewhat flexible, yet strong. It had nineteen sets over the course of its time plus one unreleased set.


Many fans believe this theme was a grand experiment by LEGO to try to compete against K'nex, which also features parts enabling the construction of large, lacy creations. They also believe that LEGO considered Znap a failure, as the range was withdrawn within a year or two. Some Znap sets were subsequently available on clearance for less than 10% off the original price. Some of them featured TECHNIC motors.

Occasionally, AFOLs build bridges and structures using Znap, integrating them into train layouts at shows. The one challenge of doing so is that different parts came in different colours, and certain key connector parts were available only in strange colours (such as purple), making uniform colour bridges difficult to construct.
