I received these cars to review and all opinions expressed in the review are my own. Modarri Cars are the IT thing with my boys! I had the opportunity to review them about six months ago with the DIY kit and every since then my four boys can’t get enough! We now have about ten of these cars and I am sure we will be getting more! I love that my boys have found something other than video games to be obsessed with!
So you would think that boys aging from 3 to 14 years old would not have very many interest in common. However, CARS and WORKING ON CARS is something that has no age limit! These cars peek even the older boys interest (including the grandpa and dad in our lives) They love to use the tool to take them apart and put them back together recreating their own design. They love registering the license plates, and of course racing their cars with each other. Modarri has taken a hobby and turned it into an award winning toy!
When Popular Science roamed the halls of Toy Fair last year, they could not take their eyes off of first-time exhibitor Modarri and its sleek miniature cars. The new toy concept was to have kids (and grownups) play with all the pieces by building, taking apart and rebuilding a totally new look that boasted a real suspension. Popular Science awarded them “Best Toy in Show” months before the company ever sold one at a retail outlet. One year later Modarri now the latest winner in the Spring 2015 National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, with fans saying the company hit the nail on the head with its offerings. CEO David Silverglate of Modarri’s parent company, Thoughtfull Toys, a self-described kid who never grew up, decided to create modular cars that weren’t made of wood, bricks, sticks or blocks. “Modarri is a new kind of miniature car line that’s driven with the fingers using realistic steering and suspension. Each modular car includes a chassis, hood/ windshield, seat pan, seat, fenders and frame, four wheels, front suspension and rear suspension. And we package each car with a Hex Tool that allows users to take apart and reconfigure their vehicles.”
As Modarri’s website, www.modarri.com, points out, mini-car drivers can literally feel the road with the car’s unique tight turning radius and finger sized bucket seat. With one finger in the seat, kids might whip the car in tight figure 8s or do slalom racing, spin in a circle or drive over obstacles, With two fingers young drivers might do wheelies, jumps, 180 spin outs or better yet, invent their own tricks. All the possibilities of childhood pleasures are tucked into these beautiful, durable and functional toys. Because the pieces are made to mix and match, there are millions of combinations that can be engineered if you were to buy each of their seven car models.
Choose from five SKU configurations, ranging from $19.95 each for the four single car varieties to $49.95 for the three-pack. The line has launched with a Street Car “S1,” Dirt Car “X1” and Track Car “T1.” In addition, the DIY model allows people to make completely custom vehicles with their own paint jobs. A three-pack of S1, X1 and T1 vehicles (all colored differently than the single versions of those cars) is the perfect holiday gift. Each comes with a Hex Tool that allows users to take apart and reconfigure their vehicles. Modarri cars aren’t only for kids (recommended for ages 8 to 108; not for ages 0–3 due to small parts). Seriously the only thing bad about these cars is I need 4 of each because my boys fought over who got which ones to add to their growing collections!
