Do you want to buy a car or a truck for the vehicle-addicted little man or men in your life? Are you tired of the Tonkas and the McQueens and the Taters? Here are two cool brands that will not only be a hit with the kids but will also appeal to you as a fashionable or eco-friendly ‘green’ adult. You’ll feel good when you buy and gift these little guys, and you’ll know you’re giving something unusual that’s not likely to be duplicated in your giftee’s holiday gift stash.
Automoblox Mini 3-Packs: At the moment I’m totally digging the simple, modern lines of these cars. They are made of beechwood with removable parts (such as wheels and windows) in beautiful colors. The parts can be interchanged and combined in every possible way, making the 3 cars capable of turning into many more cars! Plus the main body of the car itself can be easily taken apart and re-combined in dozens of ways using a unique connector system, by the youngest auto fans.

They are super-stylish, super-fun and super-affordable at less than 25$ for the 3 -pack on Amazon. The cars are also available as singles, and for bigger fun, they have non-mini ‘full size’ models too.

Green Toys Dump Truck: For the green-minded environmentalists out there, or anyone looking for a light, durable, safe sump truck that’ll do as well at home as in the sandbox, the Green Toys Dump Truck is a winner.

Made in the USA from 100 percent recycled plastic milk containers, this award-winning, eco-designed toy truck has no metal axles and a workable dumper. What more do you need? If your little giftee has one dump truck too many, Green Toys also has a firetruck, a school bus, race cars and more.
