Wooden Race Track
Wooden toy race track, with separate sections of track to build your own circuit. Sustainable, durable, indestructable!
We are toymaker Ikonic Toys.
We love beautiful objects that are well designed, inspirational and surprising. We believe in creativity which we know everyone possesses, and that is something that we want to encourage. We don't deny that we're ambitious.
We want to make the world of toys more attractive; toys that can do more than what they were originally designed to do. Toys that can be played with in ways we never imagined. Because our children are the most creative and imaginative people we know, and that is something we want to encourage and try to retain for the future.
For our first collection, we took our inspiration from the familiar wooden railway track. The design is now over 50 years old, is brilliant and is still extremely popular. Is there anyone who hasn't played with it? This wooden toy is exceptionally strong, both as a design and as a toy, and we find that inspirational.
Which of the products around us today will still be around in 20 years' time, or 40 years' time? Look around you, it won't be many. We are seizing the opportunity to make toys that will be passed on from generation to generation. How fascinating is that? To design something that will still be played with in 40 years' time!
It's freakin' mind-blowing!
We want to make a flying start with Kickstarter, and that's where we need your help! Join our adventure and pledge!
Wooden Race Track, Limited Edition, 149 pcs: € 60,00
Limited edtion, with special cars in special colours, the pitlane has a unique serial number.
The real thing, the limited edition of the wooden race track. This is your opportunity to get hold of this collector's item, which will only be available at a price on Ebay afterwards. Includes two unique race cars. The orange car with start number 9 has a Dutch connection, if you recognize it, let us know!
The pitlane has 'limited edition' printed on the bottom, along with a unique serial number. Just 149 pieces, "because you should always sell one less than the market demands" (quote: Enzo Ferrari).
Wooden Race Track (the standard edition) € 47,00
The standard, mass-produced edition, but not entirely, because the pitlane section has special printing on the bottom.
The standard wooden race track, 30 parts, with a red and a yellow Formula 1 car. Available in store soon. Comes with a pitlane with four pitboxes and a control tower, and don't forget: traffic lights at the start/finish to start the race. But the best thing, of course, is that the sections of track can also be combined with other brands' railway tracks! Today it is a race track, tomorrow it is something else... This is the less-limited edition. But it still has special printing on the bottom of the pitlane. So there we are once again.
Combi-set of wooden race track (the standard edition) plus the expansion set. € 61,00
We make it easy for you: you want both, so with this offer you can have both at once. And remember: the inside curved sections are unique, can't buy them somewhere else!
Limited Edition: 250 pcs. € 24,00 Includes 2 race cars. With special printing. With 'limited edition' printed on the bottom.
Charming car transporter that matches the wooden race track. We have a weakness for 1950s and 1960s design, so this transporter was also inspired by F1 car transporters from the 1950s. The time when everyone still understood the F1 rules and the pit stops took longer than the release of Google Glass. The transporter has an unfoldable tailgate, and the rear part of the top deck can be clicked downwards to unload the cars. The transporter is specially printed with a Kickstarter logo and text 'limited edition' printed on the bottom. The two race cars are included, with different start numbers to the standard version. This unique set forms part of a limited edition of 250 sets.
Limited Edition: 250 pcs.€ 12,00
Painted in special colours and print for this Kickstarter campaign. With 'limited edition' printed on the bottom.
These two race cars were inspired by Formula 1 cars from the 1950s, when motor racing was still a sport for men with steel balls and a short life expectancy. The cars have obviously been designed for the wooden race track and for existing wooden railway tracks. Specially painted in unique colours for this campaign, decorated in Kickstarter printing on the body and 'Limited Edition' text on the bottom. Because did we already mention that just 250 (in words: two hundred and fifty) sets are being made? Pledge, and claim this collector's item!
Expansion set for the wooden race track. € 18,00
Lay the Laguna Seca or Spa Francorchamps circuit in your living room now. One of the 23 sections of track (we won't say which) has special printing on the back.
The wooden race track is really cool, but the professional user will notice that it's even better with some extra sections. The track can be extended using other brands' track sections, but the inside bend sections of the race track are unique. And don't forget, this set has a unique section: a crossing for changing track.
We therefore urge you to buy this 23-part expasion set, otherwise known as up-selling. And we are jumping on the up-selling bandwagon too, for which you have our sincere apologies! Play on!
And remember: the inside curved sections are unique, can't buy them somewhere else!
Risks and challenges
With more than 10 years experience in product design, quality control and bringing products to market, we have seen a lot. Things that went smooth, things that went wrong. However, preparation is key.
Toy design and production is a delicate thing. From the start of the project our approach is serious. We have visited the factory, made samples, adjusted the design to make it easy to produce. We found FSC material to use. The samples are yet tested for European and US toy regulations and standards (EU toy directive, CPSIA).We know the production and shipping time, we even found a partner in the US that can do the domestic US shipping.
But you'll never know. That's why it's called an adventure.
