Based on the success of last year's ZOOBMobile Fastback (which included one pull-back friction motor), the ZOOBMobile Fastback H2H features two pull-back friction motors so kids can create their own ZOOBMobiles and race them against each other. But kids can also put the motors together to make a super vehicle that goes even faster, for up to 40 feet. The Fastback H2H features 45 ZOOB pieces and 8 high-quality tires that are notched so they work like gears. Because ZOOB® pieces snap together so many different ways, kids can use their imaginations to create their own vehicles, and add on pieces from their ZOOB collections to make even more. The Fastback H2H is fully compatible with all other Infinitoy ZOOB pieces.

How can kids move a ball into a target with 2 high walls from 2 feet away? Build a ramp? A catapult? A trampoline? A zip-line? There are no right answers and we provide no solutions--it's up to kids to use ZOOB pieces (and other materials that they choose) to build contraptions that solve the challenges. The ZOOB Challenge features 175 ZOOB pieces, string, wheels, a ball, rubber bands, a foam play pad, and 25 challenges based on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) skills-skills that educators have targeted as essential to helping the US compete successfully in the 21st century.

ZOOB is a building set with a difference—the pieces move after kids put them together. So kids can play with their creations, instead of just looking at them. ZOOB JR. provides ZOOB’s award-winning creative play with softer pieces designed for young children. ZOOB JR. pieces are made with a special memory material that flexes and goes back to its original shape, so they bend, move, and snap together snugly. And just like ZOOB, ZOOB JR.'s open-ended versatility lets kids build anything they want to build as it sparks young imaginations. The ZOOB JR. Scooter includes 18 ZOOB JR. pieces, 4 wheels, and instructions for 17 creations, such as a scooter, a mini go-cart, a skateboarder, and a spinning robot (but kids can make up lots more). The instructions require no reading, and are printed on sturdy cards. Launch date: September 2011.

Zoob's sturdy snap-together pieces are joined with colorful, flexible foam pieces that allow children to customize and accessorize their creations in new ways. The 80 Zoob pieces come with more than 100 pre-cut foam shapes and 10 sheets of foam from which kids can cut their own pieces. Instructions are included for projects ranging from robots to rocking horses, but the kit is totally open ended, allowing young creators to design straight from their imaginations. Cons:
Foam pieces tear too easily.

ZOOB Jr. features soft pieces that bend, snap together snugly and move. Both sets (15- and 30-piece) feature larger pieces in three basic shapes that are simple to use. Softer, more flexible pieces make connections easier and the larger scale results in giant creations. “ZOOB Jr. brings its unique and dynamic building characteristics to a younger audience. Now toddlers and preschoolers can also enjoy and benefit from ZOOB’s Mind-Building Construction System,” Greg McVey of Infinitoy told TDmonthly

The ZOOBDude Rock Climber doesn’t just look cool … he really climbs. Just position his grappling hook, pull the cord, push the button and watch the ZOOBDude scale the wall. ZOOBDudes are pre-assembled adventure heroes that kids can snap apart (and rebuild, and snap apart, and rebuild), each with its own working accessory. Each ZOOBDude includes 19 ZOOB pieces (including two faceplates), diagrams showing how to connect ZOOB pieces, and instructions for rebuilding a ZOOBDude and building three additional creations. All ZOOBDude pieces work with every other Infinitoy ZOOB set.
— ZOOBDude’s are the best-selling interchangeable toy at Tinkerz Toy Shop in Alene, Idaho, said sales associate Crystal Mobbs.
— Three of 39 retailers cited ZOOBDudes among construction toy best sellers in spring 2007.
— "Zoob has only five pieces, which snap together 20 different ways," explained Jeff Pinsker, CEO of Infinitoy. "It's an unsual product because you can build many different things. If you want to build a car, an elephant or anything, you don't need special pieces ... and after you put the Zoob pieces together, they move." The ZOOBDudes are transformable, too: "They come preassembled, but every single piece still moves. ... You can build a couple of different models and use the [Rock Climber] grappling hook as a winch to pull them up."
