CANDYLAB Southern Belle Race Car
Southern Belle is an homage to the fierce female race car drivers of the era. Maude Odell, Elinor Blevins, Kay Petre and many more others. Their racers were sturdy, lifted, and off-roadish and we aimed to capture that look and stance with this toy. It has a spare tire, an inward suspension camber and a giant race number on its radiator.
Dense beechwood gives each car its unexpected heft, making for highly realistic play scenarios based on real world physics – evident in ramp jumps and landings. The water-based paints and clear urethane are safe and environmentally conscious – while the high gloss finish, cool graphics and candy-like colours spark imaginative play scenarios.
Material: Solid Beech Wood, Water Based Paint and Clear Urethane
Dimensions: 18.3cm x 9.4cm x 5cm
Care instructions: Wipe with a damp cloth and a few drops of soapy water if needed.
Note: This has been safety tested according to Australian & New Zealand regulations.

Candylab Toys was born out of our desire to revive the glamorous '60s American modernist vibe and carve it into awesome contemporary wood toy designs.
As artists, designers and parents we draw on many influences, not least of which are our deep love of classic American Cars and the craftsmanship spirit of mid-century artisan furniture designers.
Coupled with the realisation that we’re slowly drowning in forgettable toys that break and disassemble — ending in piles of plastic bits — this determined us 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.

Delivery times may be increased during these periods.
