A collection of six toy cars that could bring back our imagination

Design / Guest Post By Alan Flannery,

The Duotone toy cars are inspired by cars of the past but do have that contemporary look where Floris is famous for.

Nowadays it is pretty hard to find toys that leave room for the child’s’ imagination, and still do look good.

The ‘Duotone Serie’ is a collection of six toy cars designed by Floris Hovers for Ikonic Toys.

The new collection has the unique signature of Floris Hovers, who is well known as an international furniture and toy designer.

To bring the toy cars to the market, a crowdfunding campaign is started at Kickstarter.

The collection is very characteristic, and can be extended with several new vehicles in the near future.

The toy cars come in a high end cardboard giftbox.
