Automoblox® Cars


Automoblox® cars are a reinvention of the classic wooden toy car - a fusion of heirloom craftsmanship and ultra-modern styling, transformed into a mix-and-match design system that allows kids to create their own unique car styles. There are six cars in the core line: the red C9 (coupe), blue S9 (sedan), green T9 (truck), orange A9 (compact), purple X9 (SUV), and aqua blue M9 (minivan). The cars are predominantly made of Beechwood, with ABS plastic, Lexan polycarbonate plastic and Santopreme rubber.





Since its successful launch, Automoblox® has received a number of toy and design awards, including the prestigious Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award (their highest level) and the Parents Choice Silver Honor Award, to name a few. You can see the cars in detail and check out all our awards on our website at: www.automoblox.com

Automoblox Company, LLC is proud to introduce two new lines this fall: the Automoblox® Minis and the R-line. We also have an addition to the core line, the X9X. All cars are targeted toward ages 3-7.

Success Through Play comments:

We would like to thank the Automoblox® Company, LLC for sending us a box of automoblox® car samples for this review. Upon evaluation of the automoblox ® cars, we were impressed with the innovative design, solid construction and attention to detail and it's no surprise to us why they have won so many awards!.



The developmental value of the automoblox® cars are limitless. The beauty of the automoblox® cars lies in their ability to be mixed and matched with other models and with the addition of the extension kit, the number of potential designs and combinations are endless.






Many toys on the market are passive toys; high tech battery operated plastic toys which require very little participation on the part of your child. We commend the Automoblox® Company for developing toys which promote active participation: fine-motor dexterity and imaginative play. Your child will have a wonderful opportunity to refine his pincer skills while manipulating the figurines in the car, develop good hand strength and proprioceptive input into his/her joints while pulling apart the components and reassembling them, refine their bilateral hand coordination, develop motor planning skills, visual-motor development and higher level functions: logic, problem solving, reasoning, judgment, concentration all while having so much fun.



Our child test panel consisting of both girls and boys aged 4 through age 10, were eager to test out the automoblox® cars. The children's faces lit up when they saw the various models. Soon their eager hands were pulling apart the car components and their imaginations took off; creating original and creative designs.

The parents were equally impressed and many knelt down and started playing with the cars as well. They commented how refreshing it was to see their children play with non battery operated toys. They all acknowledged how the automoblox® cars held their children's interest and attention and allowed them an opportunity to "expand their minds".

The girls in our test panel were excited to be playing with the cars and their parents commented that this was the first time that their daughters had shown any interest at all in playing with cars!!






Automoblox® cars will make fantastic Holiday Gifts this season. Gift Certificates are also available. Print out automoblox designs here to create a coloring book for your child!
