First Gear: Beautiful RC Vehicles by V2 Studios

Published Aug 23, 2018

‘First Gear’ is a fantastic self-initiated project by London-based firm V2 Studios. The minimalist toys are also eco-friendly, using cork as the primary material, plastic parts made from 100% post-consumer recycled high density polyethylene and 100% recyclable packing printed with soy based dyes.

“Fast development of cognitive and motor skills in young children means that a great deal of development toys have a very limited lifespan. Great for the toy industry, but not so great for the planet and parents. V2 developed a range of RC vehicles which directly addresses these issues. Dynamic control settings allows the vehicle to grow as a child grows; plus the use of materials in manufacture are not only sustainable but also make a positive ecological contribution.

These vehicles are programmed in three stages that add functionality and different play patterns as the child masters each skill, from learning the difference between left and right, to precise manoeuvring at high speeds. Beginner mode; hold down button to travel at a set speed of 1mph and with reduced sensitivity of steering as you tilt the controller left and right. Intermediate mode gives you variable speed control of up to 7mph with increased steering sensitivity. Pro mode can reach speeds of 15mph with sensitive steering control and braking.”
