Today I’m not just going to tell you about an amazing Christmas idea for the kids but for your husband as well! I was first introduced to Automoblox, not by my kiddo’s but by my husband. While shopping at a major toy retailer one day, I suddenly noticed that a small boxed had somehow crawled it’s way into our cart. My husband, of course, pretended to look the other way in hopes that I wouldn’t notice and it would just somehow slide through the checkout line and into the bag, all while I was oblivious. As I began to question the presence of this strange box, he pretended to look the other way and suddenly said “it’s like the coolest car ever, just buy it and let me take it home”! Now what wife could refuse that kind of request?
After we arrived home with the strange box, I realized why he was so excited about it. Automoblox not only deliver design that any parent (or man) can appreciate but these little cars deliver some serious fun! Automoblox are made of wood and each one looks different and offers plenty of different colors to satisfy every member of the family. The kids will go nuts over creating their own design by interchanging the parts and when the design is finished, they cean do it all over again! Once their through designing their custom masterpeice, they can move on to rolling the car around the house, keeping them engaged for long periods of time.
Automoblox are sold in two different sizes : Originals and Mini’s. The Automoblox Originals are bigger and chunkier and although meant for all ages, would be suitable for your younger crowd. The Automoblox mini’s are a scaled down version of the originals and fit in the palm of your hand. The mini’s have a new universal connector system that allows the rapid interchange of parts. Both offer the same design elements that Automoblox has come to be known for but the preference is really up to your child.
Benefits of Play…
Designed with your child’s development in mind, Automoblox teaches goal directed activity through which knowledge is acquired and problems are solved. The idea behind Automoblox is that you can interchange the parts and pieces among the entire product line. Let’s say you have 3 minis…you can switch out the parts on one, for the other, thus creating a custom design that’s all your own! Automoblox allows for creative problem solving, visio-spatial processing and grosse and fine motor skills.
Oh My! We Have an Opinion….
Shortly after my husband brought the Automoblox home, Big Pea swooped in and deemed this toy hers! She has played with the same little truck for some time now and has enjoyed taking it apart and putting it back together. Automoblox added to our new found collection of Automoblox by sending us 3 mini’s! With the arrival of the additional cars, Big Pea and her dad were busy interchanging parts for the first time. They created some pretty wild looking creations and even mom had to join in on the fun. Automoblox really creates play that the whole family can enjoy together and we love that! We know why Automoblox have won multiple awards for their fun and engaging toys.
Who to buy Automoblox for…
Automoblox are best suited for children 3+ but as you can see even the older members of the household would have fun with these. Automoblox mini’s would make great stocking stuffers because of their small size and will be delivered to the stocking’s in our house this Christmas!
