Almost no other animal is as popular as the elephant. Admired for its majestic size and loved because of its gentle nature. Charles and Ray Eames were also taken by the elephants charm and developed a toy elephant of plywood in 1945.
However, this piece never went into production. Now manufactured in plastic, the Eames Elephant is available for the first time to the target group for which it was originally intended: children.
Whether as a sturdy indoor-outdoor toy or simply as an attractive object in a child’s room, this friendly looking animal with prominent, oversized ears will bring delight to children and parents alike.
The Eames Elephant is available £160 from Skandium in London
