Modern Vintage Wooden Toys
Candylab Toys was born out of our desire to revive the glamorous '60s American modernist vibe and carve it into awesome contemporary wood toy designs.

Two years of experimentation, development, testing and relentless encouragement from friends, family and perfect strangers at the playground have resulted in designs that they felt were ready to share with the world.

Their way of recognising and telling the story of amazing art that lived on a race car shell and got all beat up at the track, instead of a cushy gallery career. Ballsier than Warhol and just as fleeting as a cactus bloom.

This car also features a magnetic tow hook - allowing it to hitch to our equally awesome trailer. Material: Solid Beech Wood, water based paint and clear urethane coat. White ABS plastic rims, with...
