Beech cars: If you want to get the kids to turn off their video-game consoles and have some good ol'-fashion fun, check out the neat lineup of toys from Automoblox.
The company makes a wide assortment of assemble-yourself cars and trucks that look really cool. Each is made from European beech wood along with ABS plastic parts and rubber tires.
The neat thing about Automoblox is that all of the pieces are interchangeable with any other Automoblox vehicles.
Kids can also register their cars with the company to receive all sorts of free stuff, such as posters and decals.
Automoblox toys are priced in the US $45-$50 range and are available from www.automoblox.com.
You'll be hooked on this: Here's an item that all owners of full-size sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks should keep with them at all times.
Having a lightweight aluminum EZ-Retriever II from Agri-Cover Inc. on hand will allow you to reach items that, whether intentionally, are positioned at the far end of the bed.
Instead of climbing into the box - which might not even be possible if you have a tonneau cover installed - the 1.5-metre-long extendible EZ-Retriever II lets you snag hard-to-reach items and drag them to the gate.
And by simply reversing the process, you can push loads to the back of the bed from the tailgate. You can pick one up for US $20 from www.agricover. com/access/ezretriever2.
