Motorworks by Manhattan Toy Review

It is no big secret how much Little Brother is obsessed with cars. Old cars, new cars, the movie Cars, if it is anything to do with cars he is interested. So I knew instantly when I spotted the new Motorworks line by Manhattan Toy that he would be in heaven!
We were lucky enough to have the chance to review not one but TWO of the Motorworks cars which meant more options to mix and match the car parts and most importantly one car for each boy and no fighting!

Motorworks has three different series, a Street Series, a Speed Series and a Extreme Series. Each series has three different cars. So no matter what style of car your kids are into they are sure to find a favorite. All cars and parts in all the series can mix and match giving your child endless options to customize the perfect car. You can also purchase additional accessory kits to really ramp up the customization.

We reviewed the FSX Monster Truck and the FX Fire Chief, both from the Extreme Series. We also received an additional Police Pursuit wheels and trim accessory kit. The boys went to town and had parts and pieces switching and swapping all afternoon. With plenty of parts to go around they have the best time making practical useful cars and also some pretty crazy creations. The cars have been a hit every day since we got them.

My favorite part about the cars is the quality. The body of each car is made from European beech wood. They are built strong and look nice, different than others on the market. No lights, sounds and other crazy stuff just a really cool fun and smart toy any child would love to have.

Best of all Motorworks are affordable. Vehicles are priced from $13.99 to $29.99 (two-pack vehicle sets) and accessories start at just $4.99. Accessories range from custom car decals to monster wheels. I know it's crazy to even mention the word "Christmas" right now, but I like to think ahead. I know any child would love to find these under the tree Christmas morning!

Motorworks is just one of many toys offered from Manhattan Toy. Make sure to give them a "like" on Facebook and keep up to date with all of their great products!


  1. I have a three year old daughter, and even though this would be considered a "boy" toy, I am sure she would love it and would love putting it together and racing it around. Ha girl toys/boy toys... so 50 years ago, right? Yet somewhere in my brain I still do it.. dolls for girls - trucks for boys. Silly.
