the iconic italian shipbuilding company, riva has presented a family of wooden building toy boats designed by madeindreams. the collection consists of 5 riva legends: two cult motorboats, ariston and aquarama, two more recent classics, the aquariva and rivarama, and the only wheeled model ever produced, the riva truck, which used to cross the countryside carrying the beautiful motorboats.

 

 

each toy is manufactured and hand-finished in italy, without the use of glue or any other fastener making it completely chemical free. riva has selected woods that are also used in the life-size motorboats: african mahogany, ash wood and italian maple.
