Description

As the name suggests the F1 Racer is inspired from the Formula 1 racing cars. Synonymous with speed the Formula 1 cars are aerodynamic, super fast and have low centre of gravity. Launched as part of the Eco-friendly Bamboo Toy Car series that we launched through a successful Kickstarter campaign. The toy cars are designed to be highly sustainable made from bamboo and natural paints. There are no toxic substances in the car and they can be composted after the end of life.

Features

Eco-friendly

Our cars are made from eco-friendly and natural materials including bamboo, lead free eco paint and natural bees wax finish. The design uses the natural hollow cylindrical form of bamboo and is made with minimal industrial processing making it highly sustainable.

Hand crafted

Our cars are hand crafted and hand painted using carefully selected natural and non-toxic materials. Each and every component, its manufacturing and assembling technique is carefully selected in order to ensure high quality finish.

Ergonomic design

The circular shape of bamboo is perfect for kids to hold and play. The cars use approximately 5cm diameter bamboo pieces and are approximately 20cm long making it ideal to hold and play.

 Safe

Natural material and finishes combined with the lightweight hollow form of bamboo make the cars completely safe for kids. All the sharp edges have been chamfered and the cars sanded to a silky smooth finish.

Inspires imagination

We have deliberately kept the design minimalistic to capture the essence of the car shape and promoting kids imagination. Furthermore the kids can paint and decorate the cars with their own stripes, numbers and decals or add their own drivers.
