Black Beauties Cars
2000 - 2010, toy cars

In the summer of 2001 Ineke Hans set up a children’s collection, Black Beauties
The Collection has been growing through the years, items are added on every now and than and the group is devided up in Black Beauties: furniture, activity and cars.
The Car group has grown mostly. Items have been added on for special occasions or exhibitions and also colours came in there.
Black Beauties show that children often respond to shapes, opportunities and ways of playing with things. The designs being associative, clear as 3d pictograms and playing with functions. The colour to the little cars has been supportive to their archetipical appearance.
