Manhattan confirmed as exclusive distributor for Automoblox

Arbitration ruling reaffirms the company's rights under a licence agreement with Automoblox.
Publish date:

Manhattan Toy has been the exclusive licensee and distributor for the Automoblox line of modular wooden vehicles in Europe since January 2008 and worldwide since January 2009.

In late 2010, Automoblox had disputed Manhattan Toy’s rights under the agreement and the dispute was recently settled by an arbitrator in Manhattan Toy’s favour.

The arbitrator ruled the licence agreement between Manhattan Toy and Automoblox remains in full force and that Manhattan Toy continues to have the exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute the line worldwide.

Manhattan Toy will continue to work with Automoblox to deliver new models to the award-winning range of vehicles. Manhattan Toy says it has good stock availability of most models to service customers for the fourth quarter selling period.
