What makes the model Primo so valuable?
This section will give you the answer to this question.
The timeless toy design of Primo was developed over several years by the founder of Ambosstoys. Multiple hand-made clay models were used to build prototypes. These were then converted into metal frames by hand and refined over several rounds until the most aesthetic and visually appealing design was achieved. That final design was then 3D rendered in CAD and converted into multiple heavy iron-molds (some measure several hundred kilograms).
The frame of Primo is very aesthetical and appears visually very simple. However, the manufacturing is very complex and thus is the key value adding factor of Primo.
9 individual pieces (2 side-cowls, 1 shield, 2 middle frames, 1 nose, 2 caps, 1 mudguard) are required for the whole frame. Other commercially available ride-on toys in metal use a one-piece, one-curve frame and is thus quick to manufacture.
The 9 frame pieces are welded by hand to form the final solid Primo frame. The finished frame is then treated, and powder coated in various colors.
