For celebrated designers, Charles and Ray Eames, it was toys. They considered playtime productive time. Charles once noted, “Toys and games are preludes to serious ideas.” Fittingly, the Eameses had a diverse and lively collection of toys from all corners of the globe. They recognized the connection between playful exploration and meaningful innovation.
