1. Ray and Charles Eames, “The Toy”, (1951)

    The Toy is a collection of dowels, brightly-colored plasticized paper panels and pipe-cleaner fasteners that allowed kids to build sizeable multicolored structures. Sold by Sears, Roebuck and Co., it could be used to build a temporary outdoor structure, an indoor space divider or a fanciful winged contraption.It looks like a geodesic dome kit, although in 1951, Buckminster Fuller was still far, far in the future.
