We Still Love Automoblox!1:14 PM
Picking toys is not easy (especially when all 3 boys seem to fight over whatever I get them), but there is a toy website called ebeanstalk, dedicated to selecting good, safe baby toys. BUT they need help from moms like me to help pick the toys. The toy they *sent is called Automoblox Mini from Manhattan Toy, who makes great developmental toys Here is the deal on this toy…Some of you may have remember Waaayyyy back when, my kids reviewed a car from Automoblox! Well, we still love it, and even more fun are the new mini cars. They are smaller than the original, which means that for about the same price, all my boys can play with their own car! We got to try out a pickup truck, sports care, and sedan... and interchanging the parts is just part of the allure.
Things we love about the Automoblox cars are the way that they inspire free play, they are completely customizable, and they go back together easily (which means my 3 year old can figure it out without my help.) Yes, you may end up looking for the little wheels under the couch cushions, but for the money -- these cars are well worth any "search and find" game you may be playing later.
If open-ended play is at the top of your priority list, you'll definitely need to check these out!
