"Eventually everything connects - people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to quality."
-Charles Eames

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 developed a toy elephant made of plywood in 1945; The Eames elephant, after a limited edition plywood version in 2007, was first produced in a plastic version for those it was originally intended for: children. Now, a scaled-down version, the Eames Elephant (small) made of robust plastic, can be used as a child's toy or as a decorative object, whose friendly face adds a charming note to any setting.

Charles and Ray Eames were fascinated by elephants. Many images of these gentle giants are found in Charles' photographic documentations of Indian culture and the circus world. The Eames Elephant was designed as a toy for children, but also as a striking sculptural object that makes a statement in any environment with its vigorous curves and delightful character. There is a playful charm in the way that the Eames' used juvenile motifs to create a vibrant, cheerful idiom that appeals to adults as well as children.

The Eames Elephant is also available in plywood, as well as in a larger plastic version.
