Almost no other animal enjoys such popularity as the elephant. Admired for its majestic size and loved for its proverbial good-humor, 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 and only 2 prototypes were developed.
The Eames Elephant is now available in a plastic version for those it was originally intended for: children.
