A friend tipped us off to Doodle Track Car and it sounded too awesome to be true. True: Doodle Track Car will follow a track drawn with any black marker or crayon. Creativity isn't always the first thing that springs to mind when we think toy cars, so this is a refreshing take on a timeworn favorite, and we won't miss the big plastic tracks of other cars that are ultimately landfill-bound.

Kids can draw tracks freehand or visit doodletrackcar.com to design and build their own track comprised of up to 20 pieces of standard paper complete with signals, tracks and icons. Doodle Track Car is $14.99 from Daydream Toy.
