Charles and Ray Eames also succumbed to the pachyderm's charm and developed a toy elephant made of plywood in 1945. However, this piece never went into production. Now manufactured in robust plastic, a scaled-down version of the Eames Elephant (Small) can be used as a child‘s toy or as a decorative object, whose friendly face adds a charming note to any setting.

Almost no other animal is as popular as the elephant. Admired for its majestic size and loved because of its gentle nature, the elephant is an everyday presence in our lives – as a stuffed toy, storybook figure or heraldic animal.

The Eames Elephant also comes in a larger version, in plastic or elegantly moulded plywood.
