The Toby Concept Car is Made as Meticulously as a Musical Instrument

What distinguishes the Toby Concept Car from all others in its class is an atypical amount of attention paid to its manufacturing. Mass-produced pieces of plastic or metal do not make up the main form of the little vehicle; rather, the cladding components are shells of carefully carved wood.

Designer Fulop Gellert tells the story of the birth of the Toby Concept Car, that was once made much like its fellow four-wheeled playthings. After an unfortunate collision with the wall, the automobile was taken to the local violin maker where it received a brand new body of smooth wood. Gellert is proud to present this tiny toy as so much more than a pretty knickknack, but instead as a prized item that's as beautiful as a musical instrument.
