ArcheToys move fun up a gear

Magis Spa have released an extensive collection of striking model cars designed by Floris Hovers. The inspiration for these toys came from his desire to create something both adults and children could enjoy. He also wanted to create modern toys with links to the past and drew his first designs from memory so that they featured the shapes and colours we all imagine when we think of these iconic vehicles. From this ArcheToys were born. These sleek and stylish cars are made from steel extrusions finished in epoxy resin, making them safe to use as toys or to keep as quality collectables.

The collection includes instantly recognisable vehicles such as a New York taxi, a police car and a London bus which means there’s something for everyone. Other members of the ArcheToys family have an element of nostalgia, like the classic ice cream van that conjures charming memories of hot British summers.

Magis ArcheToys London bus

The London bus is one of the many ArcheToys model vehicles designed by Floris Hovers.

Once Hovers was happy with the designs himself, the initial models of the ArcheToys were presented to his four children for approval in order to ensure their appeal to both sides of his intended audience. The collection has since been spotted by Magis, a leading Italian brand who now produce the toy cars by hand. The only question now is, which one is your favourite?
