We are excited to announce that after nearly 60 years, the Eames Office is reintroducing The Coloring Toy in the fall of 2017 for all to enjoy. Now accepting pre-orders. The Coloring Toy will ship by November 20, 2017.
Designed for and manufactured by Tigrett Enterprises, The Coloring Toy contained card-stock, coloring crayons, and butterfly clips: “All the ingredients for a kind of fun that children have enjoyed for a long time.”
Charles and Ray’s idea for the product developed as an outgrowth of a toy masks project that they started in 1950.
Each sheet of card-stock came with a variety of outlined die-cut shapes for children to color, punch out, and attach together. They could play and create by making objects, architectural structures, and abstract or realistic figures.
