The Eames Construction Toy is a large-scale building toy for adults and children that echoes the Eamesian principle of modular systems. First produced in 1951, this Eames toy is intended for use as sets for amateur theatrics, room decoration, or as tunnels and tents for imaginative play. Today it’s one of the most sought-after Eames collectibles. This reissue ensures that everyone can now create an endless variety of colorful free-standing or hanging structures in which to play or simply display. It’s as simple as connecting vibrant triangle and square vinyl panels with honest wooden dowels and craft pipes. For ages 6+.
Charles & Ray Eames are among the most important American designers of the 20th century, best known for their groundbreaking contributions to architecture, furniture design, industrial design and manufacturing, and the photographic arts. They have many works in MoMA’s collection.

Charles (1907–1978) and Ray (1912–1988) Eames were two of the most influential designers of the 20th century. In 1941, this husband-and-wife team founded their Los Angeles-based design practice, the Eames Office, and in the same year an important design by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen, the Organic Chair, was exhibited at a MoMA exhibition celebrating the winning entries of its Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition. Eames designs have been featured in dozens of MoMA exhibitions, including New Furniture Designs by Charles Eames (1946), Prize Designs for Modern Furniture (1950), Plywood: Material, Process, Form (2011–2013) and The Value of Good Design (2019).
