Charles and Ray Eames had eclectic passions; Charles was more than an architect, and Ray was more than a painter. Together, their broad spectrum of interests resulted in a catalog of film, photography, furniture, and even toys. In 1951, Charles and Ray Eames brought to market The Toy, a colorful, thoughtful product intended for children as well as adults.
The Toy was first in production from 1951 to 1959. Over the years, people have been captivated by archival images of the design. Think of the futuristic shots of Ray assembling towering structures in the Eames House meadow or the 1950s product shots with children building anything their imagination desired.
In 2017, the Eames Office reintroduced the toy, bringing it back for the first time in over 60 years for all to enjoy. Head to our online Eames Shop to find out more and make The Toy your own.
