New MOTORWORKS™ Cars, Accessories & Play Sets Give Kids Loads Of Choices Wrapped In A Sleek Package With A Common Chassis, Interchangeable Parts

Minneapolis, MN (March 19, 2013) - Even in today's technology-driven society, the appeal for children playing with toy vehicles is as popular as ever. Manhattan Toy has created a new line of toy vehicles with a twist to make them interactive -- not with beeps or batteries but with interchangeable parts. The look has to be sleek, the customization plenty and the price appealing to parents. Manhattan Toy, makers of imaginative play, does exactly that with the launch of its striking new line, MOTORWORKS. Expect kids (and grown-ups) to stop playing with their tech toys and be driven by fun with these four-wheel wonders.

The MOTORWORKS Collection includes three different trim levels – Street Series, Speed Series and Extreme Series. Interchangeable pieces across all three series snap easily into place. Accessories kits, sold separately, allow young builders pleasing possibilities like custom car decals, side pipes and spoilers. A handsome GT Road Racer 1.0™ street car becomes a speedy STS Stealth Police Cruiser 1.0™ or an extreme FSX Monster Truck 1.0™.

Best of all, the initial vehicle sets are priced from $13.99 to $19.99. Accessories -- from custom car decals to big wheels -- start at $4.99.

Manhattan Toy knows what kids want and MOTORWORKS is on track to be an instant classic that kids will want to collect with nine models rolling out for 2013. Also included in the launch are 2-pack vehicle sets allowing kids or siblings to ponder, design and manipulate wheels, car cabs and bumpers to create an individual sense of style. After all, one day they'll be passing their driver's test and shopping for the real thing! And finally, a collection of play sets round out a complete world of creative vehicle fun.
