The Coloring Toy

$32.50

SKU: 10112 In Stock

Use your imagination to create a fantasy world of colorful characters.

“This box contains all the ingredients for a kind of fun that children have enjoyed for a long time.”

As the open-ended instructions say, “The purpose of The Coloring Toy is to provide a sort of jet assist into a world of color, drawing, shapes and play. This is a world discovered and rediscovered by all children and is their own to create. The Coloring Toy does not presume to make artists out of children or to teach them how to play (children are far ahead of us on both counts). But we do hope that the contents of this box and the clues it offers will stimulate the use of these and other materials in an ever expanding variety of ways.

Watch as children, and the young at heart, dive deep into their very own world of imagination as they color, create, and play with an endless number of creations. If ordinary coloring books are a novel, consider The Coloring Toy a choose-your-own-adventure story!

We are excited to reintroduce this timeless toy, first designed by the Eames Office in 1955, to a new generation of eager creators.

Charles & Ray Eames

Toys

Charles and Ray were serious about the designing of objects—from the initial brainstorming of constraints to an item’s longevity through the decades—and simultaneously, they derived many of their design processes from toys. The intrinsic qualities of toys taught the Eameses that a design could be unselfconscious, simple in its use of materials, and provoke a feeling of delight.
