Candylab Wooden Toy Cars

Candylab is a small company in Brooklyn, New York, it was born out of a desire to revive the glamorous 60s American modernist vibe and carve it into awesome contemporary wood toy designs that are built to last. Made from solid Beech wood with rubber wheels, and topped with a stylish glossy paint job, the retro toys are elegant, durable, simple, and stylish enough to leave out after the kids play, displayed with pride on a desk, bookshelf or media cabinet. But letís face it, these heirloom wood toys were designed for grownups, and you know you want one.

You can pick these shrunken-down wooden classics from Candylab, or from Amazon
