About the Designer
Charles & Ray Eames Charles & Ray Eames United States 

Charles Ormond Eames, Jr (1907–1978) and Bernice Alexandra "Ray" (née Kaiser) Eames (1912–1988) were American designers, who worked in and made major contributions to modern architecture and furniture. They also worked in the fields of industrial and graphic design, fine art and film.

Almost no other animal enjoys such popularity as the Eames Elephant Chair. 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 also succumbed to their charms and in 1945 designed a toy elephant made of plywood. However, it never made it into mass production. The Eames Elephant is now for the first time in a plastic version for those it was originally intended for: children. Whether used indoors or outdoors, or as a decorative item in a child's room - this friendly-looking animal with its distinctive, over-sized ears is bound to bring cheer and enjoyment to both a child's and parent's heart.

As expected

 from WDM, Iowa– Verified Buyer

This is a great item for display or if you have small kids, as a stool or bench. I bought it in red color for my 2 year old twins, they like to sit on it and pretend they are riding. It appears to be sturdy and well made, and easy enough to keep it clean. I am satisfied with my purchase and pleased with the quality of the customer service provided by Wayfair.com.

Looks great and super fun!

 from NOVATO, CA– Verified Buyer

My 3 year old was so excited when he saw this show up at our door. It's fun for him and looks great in our outside of the house. It might seem expensive, but well worth the investment to have such a durable piece of furniture for the kids.
