What kind of car are you today?

Cars 'R' Us is built around a fleet of very human-looking cars demonstrating a range of emotions in everyday situations. Bursting with personality and fun, this resource is based on the idea that cars can reflect our nature and the roads we travel whether bumpy or smooth.

Inspired by Choice Theory, Reality Therapy and strengths-based ideas, Cars 'R' Us is a conversation-building tool that can be used by anyone to explore feelings and set goals. Consisting of 52 Fleet cards, 16 Know Your Vehicle cards, 10 Thinking Bubbles, one journey planner and an Owner's Manual, the Cars 'R' Us kit suggests many questions we can use to ensure that we're in the driver's seat of our own card, with a tank full of fuel, a well-tuned engine, an effective map of our journey, and a safe set of tyres. Questions like:

  • What am I thinking?
  • What am I feeling?
  • What's happening in my body?
  • What do I really want?
  • Is what I am doing now working?
  • What can I learn from this?
  • What will I do next?
