We’re back on Kickstarter, where it all started. One and a half years ago you, our backers, supported our vision to make the most awesome wood car toys out there and willed Candylab Toys into existence.
We continue to nurture an idea and the conviction that children’s toys can be awesome and enjoyed by all age groups. We took our love of classic cars, woodworking and mid-century nostalgia and made a big fat sandwich of engineering, design, manufacturing logistics, branding and some common sense retail strategy. The resulting mash-up struck a chord with a bunch of folks presumably fed up with piles of plastic toys and who appreciated a clean, simple and durable wooden design object backed by a strong aesthetic – vintage cars and throwback toys. The Kickstarter campaign we launched to materialize our designs went on to prove that other people also liked solid wood toy cars inspired by mid-century design and American muscle cars painted in bright colors with smooth rolling rubber tires. Who knew – but we were happy to see a lot of appreciation from folks across the world, and thumbs up from outlets big and small.
Favorite perk ($30)
The Woodie Wagon
The most classic of the classics, this is what legends are made of. With real walnut veneer-paneled sides, and a magnet embedded in the roof, it comes with a surfboard that snaps onto it. This car also features a magnetic tow hook – allowing it to hitch our equally awesome trailer reward. See below. Proudly displaying the same sweet Kickstarter logo on its belly.
