Other reviews seem accurate as to quality and fun, so I'll try to add new info:
Construction is of smooth wood and plastic. The wood pieces snap together with sturdy plastic plugs and grommets permanently set into the wood. All wheels are removable and the rubber "tire" (like a thick rubberband with traction grooves on the inside) comes off too. The axle for the tire is permanently fixed into the wood. The clear roof easily slides in/out without grommets or snapping but will not fall out if turned upside down.
The decals are painted on - not stickers. So they don't peel off. Great.
The plugs, grommets, axles, tires and roof are all color coded alike. That really helps me put the proper pieces together later. The set also includes 4 spare black tires.
It's a little difficult to pull the pieces apart sometimes due to the smooth wood, but once my son figured out how to grip it around the axles, he didn't have a problem. Among other things, it's fun to flip a piece so the wheels roll on the top of the car (it's silly) or rotate the roof.
1. The wheels & tires are choke hazards for my 18-mo-old. As expected; the toy is not meant for that age. The 4-yr-old also removes the wheels with his mouth/teeth b/c they snap on tightly. Not all children would do this, but just be aware. I have no problem removing the wheels by hand.
2. The wheels end up all over the toy room if the toddler is around. As I said, the set includes 4 extra wheels.
Overall it's a great toy for girl or boy age 3-?. I recommend the minis and like that there are 3 to interchange parts and interact in pretend play. This is the quality I want - and would pay for - in all new or classic toys.
I purchased four MINI Automoblox cars (red coupe, blue sedan, green pickup, and green SUV) so we can take them for trips for my boy to play. My son loves MINIs too. If he plays with MINIs inside the car, it is challenging to find small wheels after he takes them off and drops them on the floor.
There are two major differences (besides the size) in MINIs compared to the full-size Automoblox that I want to mention:
1. MINIs do not come with driver and passengers
2. All four MINIs use the same type of connectors for the wooden pieces (full-size Automoblox have vehicle specific connectors that can be interchanged and add another level to the puzzle)
It seems that the quality of the MINIs is just slightly below the quality of full-sized Automoblox cars. There are some artifacts from the manufacturing process on wooden bodies of the MINIs. Nevertheless, Automoblox are great fun toys.
These cars are solid blocks of wood. The plastic seems durable as nothing has been scratched yet. We have rolled them into the island a few times but have decided not to "crash" them as they are just too nice. They are heirloom quality. No one will be handing these down so go buy your own!!!
My husband and I joked about a commercial where the parents put the children to bed as fast as possible, scrambling around so they can get back to playing with the automoblox. We were cleaning up really!
If you aren't satisfied with these products, nothing will make you happy.
I could go on and on but I think you should just by a few and find out for yourself. One is definately not enough!
***The reviewer who gave this one star was upset with the seller and put his review in the wrong place. But the AUTOMOBLOX people are top-notch in customer service and will reply to you directly if you contact them via their website. (I only wrote to thank them for such amazing vehicles and to inquire as to when the white one and more minis would be available.)
