1. House of Cards, Charles and Ray Eames - With their vibrant and varied decks of cards, Charles and Ray ask animal, mineral, or vegetable. Each card features a different image, die-cut on four sides allowing for a never-ending range of structures. Available in small, medium, and giant sizes at MoMA.
2. Fort Standard Balancing Blocks - Test your spacial relations and understanding of weights and balances with these faceted stone-size blocks. Each set includes ten water-based-paint tumbled blocks in a cotton bag. Get them at Design Public.
3. Hattie the Elephant, David Weeks - Hattie is a most durable and posable playmate. Her firm and friendly hardwood frame is fastened with sturdy elastic bands allowing her to move about the playroom savannah for many years to come. Find her at Areaware.
4. Rosy Casa Dolls, Marilyn Neuhart - Marilyn Neuhart originally created her dolls for children from scraps of bold printed fabric. After one found its way to Ray Eames and eventually Alexander Girard, the dolls became the centerpiece of the Textile and Objects store in 1961. Today they’re handmade in the USA. Available from House Industries.
5. Best Made Famous Red Wool Blanket - X marks the spot in the center of this signature wool blanket crafted by Best Made in partnership with legendary Pendleton Woolen Mills. Warm up with one at Best Made.
6. Hang-It-All, Charles and Ray Eames - Part coat and hat rack, part colorful wall art, the sculptural Hang-It-All is unmistakably Eames. Originally designed for a child’s space, the bright painted wood balls stand out from the wall on their welded steel frame, ready to hold everything from a hoodie to a fedora. Get yours at Herman Miller.
