Admired for its majestic size and loved for its proverbial good-humor, the ever-popular elephant is part of our everyday experience as a child’s cuddly toy, a storybook character and a majestic creature.
Charles and Ray Eames succumbed to their charms and, in 1945, designed a toy elephant made of plywood. However, it never made it into mass production. The Eames Elephant is now available for the first time in a plastic version for those it was originally intended for: children. Whether as a toy or as an item for children’s bedrooms, this friendly-looking animal with its distinctive, huge floppy ears should make the heart of many a child (and parent) beat just that little bit faster.
