Automoblox Mini C9-P in Pink
I’d never seen anything like it before: the wheels, roof, front and rear end come apart so you can mix and match with other cars in the range to create your own design.

Initial thoughts: I’d never seen anything like it before. It stood out amongst our collection of metal and plastic cars. It’s a wooden car that you pull apart with plastic and rubber parts. The wheels, roof, front and rear end come apart. You can mix and match with other cars in the range to create your own design.
We liked: The car is made of wood, plastic and rubber giving it an unusual look which makes it stand out from the other cars in the 3 year olds collection. It’s really robust and chunky. The fact that you can mix and match other cars makes it far more interesting than other cars we have. Each car has a registration number on the bottom making it unique. You can print a registration card online as you add to your collection.
We weren’t keen on: The plastic component that the wheel clicks onto was loose on one wheel and I wonder if this is something which happens with overuse or just a faulty unit. I can imagine over time losing the smaller parts all over the place.
Overall: I really liked the Automoblox Mini car. At £8.99 it is probably more than I would pay for a standard car, but this is a bit special and I would look to build a collection over time.
