Automoblox cars are new award winning wood cars that are finely designed and great to play with. Automoblox are designed to come apart and each design is interchangeable so kids can create their automblox wooden cars. These finely designed cars have just won a Platinum 2006 Oppenheim Toy award. The cars are made of wood with clear components made of the same materials used for bullet proof vests and are nearly indestructible. The designer took a hammer to it... The wood is furniture-grade hardwood (straight-grain hard maple) with a beautiful and durable finish superior to that of all but the very finest furniture.
And the designs...these automoblox cars are gorgeous. A cool purple SUV, a blue sedan, an orange compact, a green pick-up truck and more! Autoblox are designed for children ages 3 to 5 but are so cool I want one (signed a 41 yr old female buyer).
