Throughout the month of August, Manhattan Toy has been partnering with bloggers across the country to host MOTORWORKS 500 events: a day dedicated to play, creativity and of course car racing!
MOTORWORKS is the only line of customizable wooden toy vehicles, accessories and play sets. The collection includes three different vehicle trim levels: Street Series, Speed Series and Extreme Series. It also offers vehicle accessory kits, custom car decals and play sets.
Each MOTORWORKS 500 event celebrated imagination and innovation, as the customization and variety of MOTORWORKS accessories and vehicles allows young minds limitless possibilities for creativity. After each guest at the parties designed and named their own vehicle, it was time to race against the others! Check out some of our favorite party pics.
