About the product

The Modular™ HighWay Construction Kit construction toy takes a unique approach, allowing true three-dimensional highways and levels to be constructed . The toy develops abstract thinking, three-dimensional perception, creativity and offers multiple construction options.

Compatible with other “Modular™ Toy Construction kits”.   Age 5 and up.

My Thoughts

When I was approached to review the new line of Modular toys, I immediately saw the potential for one of my nephews who loves anything that is related to cars.   

When I received the package I must admit that I didn’t know what to expect.   I mean I saw the image and I had an idea of how the product could be put together but that’s about it.   I was surprised by the quality behind the packaging of the toy.   Not only the similar pieces are in plastic bags but the whole kit itself is also in a bigger bag.   Seeing this tells me that the company behind the toy believes in quality control and wants to make certain that all the pieces are included in the box before selling it to a potential customer.

I have never seen a toy like this before.   The plastic pieces are sturdy and easy to assemble but it is also quite versatile as it can be build and rebuild whenever your child wants to change the track.   I almost wish that this would have been available when my boys were younger…  *grin* 

Modular Construction Toys takes a new and unique approach to construction toys allowing a three-dimensional highway which will help your child to develop abstract thinking, three-dimensional perception and creativity during his play time.   

What I particularly like from the 3D Highway is the flexibility of building whatever road you would like.   The construction will keep your child busy for sure.  The box advertize that there is more than one million track combinations – which I tend to find a bit exaggerated since the box only contains 72 pieces but it could be possible I guess.    The child will be able to plan and build his own racetrack, create endless combinations (particularly if he receives other  pieces from the 3D RoadBuilder or the 3D RaceTrack. and have fun with dad or his siblings.   Once built the road will be suitable for most 1:64 scale cars. 

In the box, you will get some fun stickers to put on your pieces as well as a little flyer giving you some ideas on tracks that can be build with the products.   Four cars are also included in the box.   An extractor is also included to help you disassemble the track. 

I really love the idea behind this product and hope that they will expand their kits to include more possibilities in the future.   I would be nice to be able to build a mini town of some sort with the tracks going everywhere through it.   It would be a wonderful gift to purchase for a birthday or Christmas this year.  

Other products like the 3D RaceTrack or the 3D RoadBuilder can complete the 3D Highway.   Modular Construction Toys also have other themes like the Modular Castle Boys, the Modular Castle Girls and the Modular Characters.

The 3D Highway Educational Construction Kit is available at your favourite toy store.   I saw them in the ToysRUs flyer as well as in Wal-Mart.
