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.

I bought this because I love red, art, history, and elephants remind me of one of my best friends. I didn't really expect it to be all that fun or interesting to kids,,,, but it is! Kids love this thing and can't get enough of it! Such a simple thing, yet a huge hit! I am so happy with this piece of Art that is also sturdy and entertains the kiddos :) Great purchase!

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.

RED ELEPHANT by EAMES

Cute--more of a chair than a toy

 from Philadelphia, PA– Verified Buyer

This is a very sturdy product, well made and seems like should be easy to keep clean (I hope, since ours is white). I bought it for my 2 year old daughter. She likes to sit on it and "ride" it (it is stationary). My other kids are older and have incorporated it into some games.

I think we will get the most use out of it if we put it in the TV room or other place where we are prone to gather and sit.
