Vlad Dragusin always loved building model cars and boats as a kid—it’s probably part of why he became an architect when he grew up. But unlike most of us, he didn’t let his hobby fall by the wayside as an adult, instead tooling around in his off hours with designs for handmade wooden toys that also expressed his love of woodworking, muscle cars, and midcentury design.

Vlad Dragusin always loved building model cars and boats as a kid—it’s probably part of why he became an architect when he grew up. But unlike most of us, he didn’t let his hobby fall by the wayside as an adult, instead tooling around in his off hours with designs for handmade wooden toys that also expressed his love of woodworking, muscle cars, and midcentury design. Combined with an aversion to plastic, Vlad’s goal was 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.” In 2013, he launched a Kickstarter to fund production of three low-slung race cars, based on real models and carved from solid beechwood, and they were such a hit that he officially launched Candylab and a whole line that includes everything from a taxi cab to a wood-paneled station wagon. Talk about drive.
