When it comes to little boys, a toy car never fails to please. Whether it’s pockets weighted down with Matchbox cars or the thrill of being in the driver’s seat with a remote control racer, boys seem to always become completely absorbed when playing with a toy car. Give them some wheels with style from Arche Toys.
Created by Dutch designer Floris Hovers, the cars are reminiscent of vehicles of the 1950s and 1960s. Hovers’ inspiration comes from taking a fresh angle on design principles from the past and acknowledging that invoking memories are an important part of successful design.
Each car is handcrafted from surprisingly few but basic factory-made metal parts. The range is huge and includes yellow taxi cabs through to robust cranes and sublime eau-de-nil family sedans. To truly appreciate the simplicity of Hovers’ cars, check them out in production.
These gems are not in full scale production yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
