Product Description

Almost no other animal enjoys such popularity as the elephant. Admired for its majestic size and loved for its proverbial good-humour, it is part of our everyday experience as a child’s cuddly toy, a storybook character and a majestic creature. Charles and Ray Eames also succumbed to their charms, and in 1945 designed a toy elephant made of plywood. However, it never made it into mass production at the time. The Eames Elephant was made available in plywood for the first time in a limited edition by Vitra in 2007. Now Vitra have produced a licensed version in ABS in a variety of colours.

Whether used as a toy (also outdoors) or a decorative item in a children’s room – this friendly-looking animal with its distinctive, over-sized ears is bound to bring cheer and enjoyment to many a child’s and parent’s heart.

Charles and Ray Eames developed a toy elephant made of plywood in 1945; however, this piece never went into production. Now manufactured in plastic, the Eames Elephant is available 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.
