What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

We are toymaker Ikonic Toys from The Netherlands. We are a very young company, we design wooden toys, bring them into production and sell them all over the world. That’s what we do for 2 years now.  

Floris Hovers

We are big fans of the work of Dutch designer Floris Hovers for many years. Floris is a well-known designer of furniture, toys and interior products. His designs are colorful, abstract and yet very playful.  

Our dream was to have a new collection of toys designed by Floris Hovers, and he came back to us with these 6 beautiful cars.  

Nowadays it is pretty hard to find toys that leave room for the child's’ imagination, and still do look good. The Duotone cars are inspired by cars of the past but do have that contemporary look where Floris is famous for. 

Rewards

The cars here on Kickstarter will be different than the ones in mass production, every car will have a unique serial number on the bottom and the gift box will have a Kickstarter seal.
Bonus reward: we will print the names of all the backers on the inside of the sleeve of the gift boxes!

Materials

The material of the cars is FSC certified beechwood, the wheels are made out of plastic, connected to the body with metal axes. The packaging will be made in The Netherlands. The cars will be produced in China, at a high end factory with excellent craftsmen. We have selected this factory because this facility produces toys for major European and American toy brands, and they are familiar with the latest toy safety requirements. All toys of Ikonic Toys are made in this factory.    

Introduce some Dutch Design to your kids’ toy collection!

We love to put this collection into production, and we are looking for your support!

Risks and challenges

Toy design and production is a delicate thing. From the start of the project our approach is serious. We have visited factories, made samples, designed the packaging. We found FSC beechwood to use. A lot of effort went into coaching our factory to make the samples exactly like the original design of Floris. We have made toys before, but you'll never know. That's why it's called an adventure.
