Who wouldn't love a bright yellow toy elephant to keep them company? Buttercup will be a friend for life. Rarer by the day in the wild, she's also that rare thing in an infant's bedroom: a toy that's as gorgeous to look at as she is fun to play with. 

The Eames Elephant is based on the prototype of a toy made from plywood by Charles and Ray Eames in 1945. Today, the sturdy plastic pachyderm is perfect for kids rooms and fun to play with outdoors. 

Approximate dimensions: the small elephant is a maximum of 15 1/2 inches long and 8 1/4 inches high.
