If you've read Autoblog consistently for the past three years, you're no doubt aware of Automoblox, a collection of heirloom quality toy car of which we're particularly fond. Among other presents, every year at Christmas we give away an entire collection signed by the designer, Patrick Calello.
Patrick always contacts us first when there are new Automoblox being readied, and he's just revealed to us a new line of cars for the 2007 holiday season. Called Automoblox Mini's, they are a fraction the size of a normal Automoblox car and can fit in the palm of your hand. Despite that, they sacrifice nothing in terms of detail and quality. As always, kids (or kid-like adults) can interchange parts between the cars to create new vehicle designs, as well.
Whereas a standard Automoblox costs $35.00, an Automoblox Mini car costs only $7.99. Unfortunately, the Automoblox Mini line has proven to be more popular than the company expected despite having just arrived, so if you want some as stocking stuffers for Christmas, visit the Automoblox Store directly to preorder yours before the next batch sells out.
