Toymaker Spotlight: Candylab Toys

In the market for a rad wooden car? Look no further! We love Candylab cars so very much and have carried them since day one at Made You Look. What started out as a Kickstarter campaign by a fella in Brooklyn has turned into a full-fledged wooden toy car company!

As artists, designers and parents, the toymakers at Candylab draw on their many influences, not least of which are a deep love of classic American Cars and the craftsmanship spirit of mid-century artisan furniture designers. Coupled with the realization that we’re slowly drowning in forgettable toys that break and disassemble — ending in piles of plastic bits — this determined them to create a line of heirloom wood toys that are elegant, durable, and simple, giving children a chance to create their own stories around the objects they play with.
