Magis' ArcheToys collection is made for children and their adults, or child-minded adults – however, these witty decorative cars will definitely leave no one unimpressed. Designer Floris Hoveris was inspired by comic strips and created a car collection that features many motor vehicles with different shapes, colours and characters. ArcheToys cars will decorate a nursery, but also bring a dash of playfulness to a living room or a home office: is there any better way to wait for inspiration to hit than to roll a London bus back and forth on your desktop?
