Candylab: Modern Vintage Wooden Toys
View Slideshow

If you have kids or know anyone who does, you know it’s easy to get eyeballs deep in a sea of plastic toys that seem to have a very short shelf life. That, along with a love of the 60s modernist vibe, led to Candylab Toys being born. The brand merges the same type of mid-century craftsmanship its designers evoked with their love of classic American cars to result in a collection of modern wooden toys with a vintage feel.
