Toy Therapy: Automoblox for Children with Autism

automobloxWe love when innovative products, responsible companies, and good causes come together.

Automoblox mix-and-match cars are fun for any kid and they can deliver big play-therapy benefits for children with special needs.

These heirloom quality cars encourage creative problem solving, visio-spatial processing and the development of fine motor skills–plus they are just good, old-fashioned fun.  Kids who have difficulty communicating may open up as they discuss their designs.

Joe Barrett, CEO of Automoblox explains, “We hope this campaign can help make the schooling of children with Autism a little more interactive and fun for students as well as instructors.”

Get your favorite kid (or kid at heart–Automoblox make a great desk toy for adults, too) an Automoxblox retro-cool car and Automoblox will send one to a school that serves children with autism. Now that’s really cool.

SHARE IT: For every car purchased at using code “donate” at check-out throughout the months of July and August 2009, Automoblox will donate a car to a school specializing in the treatment of children with Autism. Upon completion of the program, participating consumers will receive a list of the schools that received Automoblox donations.

The distribution of donated cars will be managed by The May Institute, a national organization dedicated to providing comprehensive, research-validated services to children and adults with autism, brain injury, mental retardation, pervasive development disorder (PDD), and behavioral healthcare needs.

Federal Express will donate its services with regards to the shipment of donated cars to schools within The May Institute’s network.
