Modarri sent me digital codes for free so that I could create two custom Modarri cars using their Modarri Configurator. Opinions are my own.
I am a huge Modarri fan. When they first came on the scene in 2014 I was all about their Kickstarter. I funded at the highest level I could and got all of the cars that they made for Kickstarter. I was thrilled. These cars are so much fun and the kids love playing with them. I also love playing with them. they have such a coolness factor to them. You can mix and match 11 different parts on each Modarri vehicle. We often focus just on the Fender, Frame, Chassis and Hood but you can also remove and swap the wheels and suspensions and seats. There are many things that can be customized and swapped on these cars.
Now Modarri has created the Modarri Configurator. This website lets you create your own Modarri car to your own specifications. You choose the hood, fender, frame and chassis. You can mix and match from a bunch of options and when you are done you can purchase your creation for $28. We created two cars thanks to some digital discount codes from our friends at Thoughtfull Toys, the makers of Modarri. It was very easy to do and in the video below I show you just how easy it was.

“It’s like design with training wheels,” is how Brian Gulassa, the brainchild behind Modarri’s configurator, describes it. When not teaching design at California College of the Arts, Gulassa is the Chief Design Officer for ThoughtFull Toys, the company behind Modarri’s award- winning line of modular vehicles. “With most toy cars, you’re not actually touching them while you play. You either watch them run down a Vtrack, use a remote control, pull back or wind up and let go. Maybe you just push them once and watch them go in a straight line… or maybe you buy the car and put it on a shelf for display, never to be touched again. That was a big ah ha! moment for us. How could we make a real, hands-on driving experience?”
The Ultimate Toy Car was a collaboration of three dads — David Silverglate, Trevor Hite and Brian Gulassa — who set out to make the toy car they had dreamed about as kids. Featuring a finger-drive bucket seat, real independent spring suspensions, and patented steering mechanism that makes Modarri cars one of the most maneuverable on the market. Beyond that, Gulassa explains, “We wanted to encourage kids to be the designers, by providing them with an easy, open-ended system that encouraged creative exploration through their own choices.”
