Candylab Toys was born out of a desire to revive the glamorous '60s American modernist vibe and carve it into awesome contemporary wooden toy designs. Their mission is to make the absolute best wooden toy vehicles on the market.
They are a team of designers, engineers, parents that work together and draw on many influences, mainly their deep love of classic American cars, and the craftsmanship spirit of mid-century artisan furniture designers. They were determined to create a collection of heirloom wooden toys that are elegant, durable, and simple, allowing children to create their own stories around the objects with which they play. The beautiful modern design coupled with their love for vintage automotive design are well-loved by children and collectors alike.
Candylab Toys are made only solid beech wood, water based, nontoxic paints, a little bit of plastics, metal and real rubber. Their cars comply with the safety requirements of ATSM F963, Australian and NZ safety regulations as well as European toy safety requirement EN71 parts I and II.
Candylab Toys avoid plastic as much as possible and they are always looking for ways to reduce their footprint and impact on the climate. Lastly, the beech they use in making toys comes from North American, well-managed forests where they can trace its path to their woodworking shop.
