So… You pretty much already know how I feel about Modarri. I absolutely love them and they will be featured in my upcoming Holiday Gift guide titled, “The 10 Coolest Toys I Wish Existed When I Was 10”. I learned about these toys months and months ago and started looking into them, eventually helping to fund their wickedly successful Kickstarter Campaign and seeking them out at Toy Fair. When the opportunity arose for me to review these toys I jumped all over it even though I will be getting my own set of Modarri cars that I am expecting from my Kickstarter Rewards. But I got a set of Modarri car for review. The Street Car “S1,” Dirt Car “X1”, Track Car “T1” and the DIY car that we painted with nail polish. Opinions are 100% my own.
Modarri toy cars are the first toy line from Thoughtfull Toys. The toy line was 300% funded on Kickstarter and was officially launched at Toy Fair 2014. The cars will begin hitting retail stores very, very soon. I took my Modarri cars with me to work one night and all the guys were having a great time taking them apart and putting them back together in different combinations. Let me explain. Modarri cars are modular cars with parts that swap with each other. Here is what the cars look completely broken down into their component parts. Each modular car includes a chassis, hood/windshield, seat pan, seat, fenders and frame, hex tool, four wheels, front and rear suspensions and a hex tool for taking them all apart and putting them back together or better yet, mixing them up with other cars in the line.
And here are the cars as they were shipped to me.
With those parts we can then reassemble all the parts into a brand new car. We can do that over and over again in thousands of combinations. The cars are rated for 8 and up. My daughter just turned 7 and I let her reassemble the cars on her own. With a little guidance she was all set to take the cars apart and put them back together with the hex tool that is included. This photo below is our set of reassembled new cars.
Disassembling and reassembling the cars into different cars is certainly a drawing point for my interest. However, the awesome doesn’t stop there. Modarri cars have rubber tires and independent suspension. You can drive the cars by putting your index finger into the driver’s seat and your thumb on the trunk. The cars drive so well, too. The track car can be a little tricky but the rest of the cars drive like dreams.
In addition to the three cars that were already colored I asked for a DIY version as well. the DIY version is a grey car that you can paint on your own. You can paint them with acrylic paint. I chose to get some nail polish to paint the cars because the manufacturers have noted that nail polish works well for painting. I wanted nail polish because I wanted a paint with a shiny sparkly finish.
So I started with this.
And we turned it into this.
