Candylab Carbon77 Wooden Car
Candylab Carbon77 Wooden Car discreet grey with a hairline bright red stripe. The wolf in sheep’s clothing, lucky number 77 will be the star on the imaginary quarter mile circuit.
This wooden toy car sports elegant proportions reminiscent of iconic 1960’s automobiles. Complex carving details, perfectly smooth rubber tires and lively graphics. All this adds up to produce a stunning design toy.
Dense beechwood gives each car its unexpected heft. Thus making for highly realistic play scenarios based on real world physics. Of course this is evident in ramp jumps and landings. The water-based paints and clear urethane are safe and environmentally conscious. And while the high gloss finish, cool graphics and candy like colours spark imaginative play scenarios.
Material: Solid Beech Wood, Water Based Paint and Clear Urethane
Dimensions: 18.3cm x 7.3cm x 5cm
Candylab Toys was born out of a desire to revive the glamorous ’60s American modernist vibe and carve it into awesome contemporary wood toy designs.
As artists, designers and parents they draw on many influences, not least of which are their deep love of classic American Cars and the craftsmanship spirit of mid-century artisan furniture designers. Coupled with the realisation that we’re slowly drowning in forgettable toys that break and disassemble — ending in piles of plastic bits — this determined Candylab to create a line of heirloom wood toys that are elegant, durable, and simple, giving children a chance to create their own stories around the objects they play with.
