Oompa Toys: Automoblox Review and Giveaway {Ends 12/10}

Not long ago, my very favorite little boy in the whole world celebrated his 3rd birthday! 

It just so happened that on that very special day, we received a very special package in the mail from Oompa Toys. It was good news for the birthday boy, but not such good news for all the other toys at the party.

Once he got a glimpse of what was inside that package, it was all over. He only had eyes for Automoblox. 

What are Automoblox? I wasn’t so sure at first. Were they blocks? Some kind of wooden car?

Well, sort of.

They’re both!

Automoblox are beautifully crafted toy automobiles made out of German beech wood. Each car breaks down into interchangeable parts so your little one (3 and older) can use their imagination creating countless designs. The first thing I noticed when I took the time to really look at these is that they are no ordinary wooden toys. They are so well-made, with wheels that roll as smooth as butter. Each piece is definitely heirloom quality and made to last.

The designer of the Automoblox line, Patrick Calello, does a bang-up job and I’d love to shake his hand. My son has only had these cars for about a week, and you wouldn’t believe the hours he’s already spent completely fixated on them. A great bonus: Dad and Pop Pop like to play with them too! I love to sit back and watch them all build together.

Automoblox come in larger sizes, too, but we started off with the mini ones, just right for 3-year-old hands. The Mini S9/C9/T9 Set comes with a green truck, a red sports car and a blue sedan.


In just this one set, there are plenty of pieces to mix and match. Oompa Toys carries a whole bunch of others minis, too, and I’m looking forward to adding a few to our set (in fact, I’m having trouble stopping myself from browsing online and going a little overboard with all the cool minis available.) Automoblox have really solved our dilemma of what toys to buy for holiday gifts this year. Any toy of this quality that encourages fine motor skill development, creative problem solving and an understanding of mechanics is on the top of my “must-encourage” list!

Neat fact: Each car even comes with its own serial number, making it completely unique. (You can see the logo and serial number sticker on the block in the back with the green pegs.)

Can you tell we’ve got a winner here? I really can’t say enough positive things about Automoblox. From the quality finish of the wood to the practically indestructable wheels, these innovative toys definitely deserve a place on your holiday gift list!

Buy it!

Check out all the Automoblox available at Oompa Toys, from full-size trucks and sports car to minis and more. Don’t forget to visit Oompa Toys on Cyber Monday and show your support for businesses that truly value your children and the quality of their playthings.
