Automoblox – Durable Heirloom Design Cars


Automoblox is not your normal toy car. These cars have a unique, simple and very cool design. They are made out of parts and can be taken apart and put together just like a real car. This allows you to design your own cars by taking existing cars apart, switch the parts around and put new cars together. For this you will of course need more than one of the Automoblox cars. The more cars you have, the more design possibilities you will have.

The body of the Automoblox car is made out of wood and under the hood you find the engine parts. These parts will help you combine any car that automobox_own_designyou would like to make. The engine parts and the car as a whole was made in cooperation with a child psychologist which has resulted in fun toys with a high educational value. Automoblox inspires creative and imaginative playing and helps develop skills as shape recognition, color matching and fine motor skills.

At Automoblox you can see the specifications for all the Automoblox car models. Each car has their own Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) just like real cars. This will surely increase their collectible value and it also allows you to register your cars online! The VIN contains information about your car. It can tell you the make, year, model, color, place of manufacture and what number your car was to roll of the assembly line.

It is possible to buy extra accessories that allows you to make any car into a 6 and 8 wheeler. This makes building Automoblox cars even more fun.

Automoblox has quite an unusual philosophy when it comes to the durability of their toys. It is unusual for mass producing toy companies to want anything other than cheap and effective production. Durability often gets very little attention. Automoblox’s philosophy is to make heirloom toys with a great durability. “It is better to have one great toy instead of 10 cheap ones.”. Automoblox wants children to bond strongly with their toys and hopes that they might want to keep them as they grow up and pass them on to their own kids. All the Automoblox car parts are incredibly strong. The wheels for example are nearly impossible to break. They are literally bulletproof!
