Eames toys.

We know that it's sixties sunday, but these amazing photos of Eames toys from 1951 were too good to pass up! 

The designer himself, Charles Eames, assembling with pipe cleaners!
All of these lovely photos were taken by Allan Grant in March 1951, and found in the LIFE archives.


  1. The giraffe head/neck has to be my favourite piece, these photos are priceless!

  2. WOW!!! I never knew he did toys! They are so awesome, though think I will be searching a lifetime before I find any of them!!

  3. Oh my gosh, those are awesome! Where can I get some of those?! haha. I don't care if I'm in my 20s; I want a giraffe head.


  4. Very cool...for some reason, they bring back memories of playing in refrigerator boxes that my Dad would bring home from work!

  5. oh gosh, these costumes are just too much to handle. absolutely smitten with the giraffe!!!
