About Wooden Toy Cars

Thank you for visiting Wooden Toy Cars website which is owned and run by Maurice under the name Maurice’s Studio. Maurice’s Studio is the continuum of NewsGripper Ltd which is 100% owned and operated by Maurice Warren since 2000.

Many children have mountains of plastics toys, stacking up environmental problems for years to come. Sustainable wooden toys can last for generations and do not present a disposal problem.

Toys for boys yes, but these depictions of heritage vehicles are more than toys – they are genuine art as well as being highly unusual and rare home décor pieces. Handmade in our Wolverhampton workshop, each classic vehicle is individual. Over 24 models of classic cars, busses, coaches, tractors and lorries can be purchased straight away or commissioned to be specially manufactured for you.

We specialise in a superb oil & wax finish and have expertise in non-fading pigments for the British Racing Green, French Racing Blue or Italian Racing Red and we use a secret blend of vinegars to ebonize our oak models to achieve a unique and environmentally friendly black finish.

Manufactured long and strong – each classic car is at least 300mm long and minimum 100mm from hub-to-hub with 15mm diameter axles. I made these for kids but found parents using them around the house for decoration.

The toy racing cars are generally made to order and can take 10-14 working days for the oil to dry between coats so please do allow sufficient time if you are selecting a sustainable wooden toy car for a birthday or Christmas gift.

We manufacture the classic racing cars in two basic shapes: the ‘Monaco Racing Car’ with a pointed bonnet and high rear end, while the ‘Le Mans’ elegantly curves from the bonnet through to the tail, imitating the early Bentleys and Bugatti open-cockpit racing cars. An evocative expression of those pre-war racing cars that used to whizz around the track at Monaco, Le Mans, La Sarthe and Goodwood during the 1930s.

Not meeting the VAT threshold, Maurice’s Studio does not charge VAT consequently, pricing could in some instances be more competitive and simpler for European and worldwide sales.

Maurice’s Studio is a true brick-and-click company with solid foundations in art, design, manufacture and commerce. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us via our contact page.
