Candylab Toys

Candylab Toys was born out of a desire to revive the glamorous atmosphere of American modernism of the 1960s and transform it into great contemporary wooden toy designs, wooden cars and wooden models.  As artists, designers and parents, the Candylab Toys team draws on many influences, not least their great love of classic American cars and the craftsmanship of medieval furniture designers. Coupled with the realization that nowadays we are all drowning in "interchangeable, inferior toys" - which break and disintegrate and often end up in piles of plastic waste - a wonderful series of American wood runabouts emerges. Candylab Toys was led to develop a range of wooden toys that were elegant, durable and simple, giving children the opportunity to tell their own stories about the objects they play with. Candylab Toys' "Cars" have the potential to become heirlooms!
