CANDYLAB - MODERN VINTAGE WOOD TOYS
Candylab Toys is a design company of gear heads, architects, engineers, and designers with a passion for beautiful all-natural materials, unique craftsmanship, and vintage-yet-modern looking cars that exude their own personality and are inspired from an era when you fantasized about having a ride that matched an image you wanted to project. The cars have a highly artistic look with a mix of bold colours, and an impressive solid feel from their sturdy beech wood body. From the “Woodie Wagon Surf Vibe vintage” to the “Drifter Series”, a gorgeous off-roader infused with nostalgia, Candylab collectibles have been popular at museum gift shops and with consumers and collectors internationally.
“We are car buffs who happen to be engineers and designers who see cars as works of art that truly grab your attention - but now, during the time of staying at home, we felt it important to give kids (and possibly their parents) some cool looking toys to play with and create stories with”
- Vlad Dragusin, founder and lead designer for Candylab.
There are also a range of Americana set pieces that can enhance toy car playing experience, including the Lone Cactus Motel, Malibu Beach Tower, and Toll Booth.
