Automoblox has combined design and function to create these super cool wooden cars with minimal plastic parts. Is it a car? Is it a puzzle? Automoblox cars come apart, and the parts are interchangeable. We have had our red Automoblox sport coupe (designed by Callelo) for a year, and both of my children love to play with it. The little plastic people have different shapes on their bottoms that insert into the car seats, furthering the puzzle experience. The people and tire treads do pose choking hazards, thus the Automoblox cars are rated for children over three years of age; however, we allow our two year old son to play with his. If your child has moved beyond the oral exploration stage, the toy is safe for use with supervision. Another bonus is there are not too many parts to get lost around the house when the Automoblox is disassembled. Unfortunately, the product is assembled in China for sale. Automoblox’s creator had several bad experiences and was lied to about the conditions of Chinese factories during initial production.
