Candylab Southern Belle Race Car
DescriptionSouthern Belle is an homage to the fierce female race car drivers of the era. Maude Odell, Elinor Blevins, Kay Petre and many others. Their racers were sturdy, lifted, clunky and off-roadish, and we aimed to capture that look and stance with this toy. It has a spare tire, a positive (inward) suspension cambe and a giant race number on its radiator. Transportation toys effortlessly rev up a child’s imagination, from exploring what makes them move to dreaming of their destination. More than just a prop, this push toy is a vehicle for building essential physical and mental skills, including gross motor development (watch as they move around the room), communication and storytelling (Where is this car headed? Who is the driver?). Time for a road trip!
