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 and only 2 prototypes were developed. The Eames elephant is now available for the first time in a plastic version for those it was originally intended for: children. Whether used as a toy, or a decorative item (indoors or out) – 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.
The Vitra Miniatures collection are exact reproductions of the original designs at a scale of 1:6. Every detail has been recreated in the structure and materials used. The miniatures are packed in a collectable wooden box.
