Znap was launched in 1998. The pieces were more complex than traditional Lego bricks, which allowed for more complicated architectural creations. The product line aimed to rival a similar construction toy named K'Nex, but did not gain popularity and was discontinued in 1999. Lego Znap was launched at a time in the late 1990s, when The Lego Group was experiencing financial problems, caused by several factors, including infrastructure expansion and an unmanageable increase in the number of produced parts with little gain in sales. Znap is listed by Business Insider as one of several product lines launched during this period "that almost ruined the company."
Lego Znap was a building system that could be snapped together in a flexible way to create structures such as bridges. The parts were produced in a series of bright colours.
According to Bricklink, Lego Znap released 19 sets.
Znap is one of several Lego product lines with alternative building systems that have been rejected by some Adult Fans of Lego (AFOL) as "impure" and "not Lego".
