The Colouring Toy des. Charles & Ray Eames, 1955
Charles and Ray Eames created The Colouring Toy in 1955 to stimulate creativity in children. As the open-ended instructions say, "The purpose of The Colouring Toy is to provide a sort of jet assist into a world of colour, drawing, shapes and play. This is a world discovered and rediscovered by all children and is their own to create. The Coloring Toy does not presume to make artists out of children or to teach them how to play (children are far ahead of us on both counts). But we do hope that the contents of this box and the clues it offers will stimulate the use of these and other materials in an ever expanding variety of ways."
