The philosophy of Ambosstoys is simple: Convert the design of classic vehicles into metal toys through finest craftsmanship!
'Amboss' means anvil in German. Thus Ambosstoys - as the anvil - is synonym for handcraft, metal and longevity, opposing the unsustainable trends of many present-day toys (i.e. plastic, valueless and low quality).
The two founders of Ambosstoys, Elisha Ruesch and Nguyen Nguyen, are passionate about classic motorcycles and classic cars and collected, restored and traded REAL classics for years in their workshop in Vietnam.
When the became parents, they discovered that most of the commonly used toys in these days are made out of plastic and last for just one season, if at all. Objects break easily, are irreparable and thus have to be thrown away.
These unsustainable trends of many present-day toys and the passion for classic vehicles sparked the idea of Ambosstoys in the minds of Elisha and Nguyen. The founders had the vision of creating toys in timeless designs similar to the classic vehicles and made of metal sheets that hold for a lifetime.
Aftern many prototypes this first Primo Ride-on was born.
Primo means ‘first’ in Italian and has a twofold meaning for Ambosstoys: it reflects the origin of the design as Primo resembles a classic Italian scooter and it marks the first product of Ambosstoys.
