About Automoblox - Rev your engines for Automoblox, an award-winning line of modular wooden vehicles that encourages young minds to build cars and trucks of their own design. Collectable and just plain smart, Automoblox is an heirloom toy line loaded with developmental benefits, such as strengthening visual motor integration and creative problem-solving. Automoblox, accelerating imagination, putting creative play right in the palm of your hands.
Creative problem solving - Our child is encouraged to figure out novel ways to use Automoblox parts to produce vehicles of their own creation using their imagination. Creative problem solving skills develop as your child is able to formulate new ideas and produce a variety of responses (or different combinations to create new car designs).
Automoblox helps in developing planning skills. Creativity involves originality, flexibility, independence and playfulness. Ways to further creative problem solving is to talk with your child about their creation - allow as much choices as possible. For example, ask questions to encourage your child to express how two cars are different or alike and to demonstrate the many possibilities and arrangements they can make using their Automoblox. Encourage the naming of shapes and colours, the steps needed to make their cars, and finally naming their designs.
Gross and fine motor skills - Gross and fine motor skills develops and exercise a child's sensory and motor modalities. Automoblox promotes the development of the ability to coordinate precise hand and visual movements of the arms, hands and fingers and the ability to develop finger dexterity and speed of motor movements.
Visio-spatial processing - Visio-spatial processing is an important link in the processing of information and the ability to develop visual motor integration skills. While playing with Automoblox, a child discovers how they perceive shapes and part-to-whole relationships by putting the puzzle pieces together. They will begin to use skills such as rotation, integration and see angles to accurately differentiate between shapes and how they can build and design their own cars.
The Durability of Automoblox - We live in a world where toys are a disposable commodity. The founders of Automoblox believe however, that we may be giving our children a harmful message. The founders feel that it's better to have one great toy instead of 10 cheap ones. It is this thinking that enabled founders to engineer Automoblox to last. The selection of materials that comprises all Automoblox cars were made to meet specific performance requirements rather than a mass-market price point.
Designed as a heirloom toy from the get-go, The Automoblox founders anticipated the bond between the child and the toy to be so great that they would wish to save Automoblox and pass it on to their own children.
