As you might have noticed (if you are a regular reader), we do love the designs of Eero Aarnio, especially the range he has produced for children. This Eero Aarnio-designed Happy Bird for Magis is certainly one we adore.
Like the other designs, this is a mix of added style for your room (as a seat) and a base for play, encouraging your child to use his or her imagination to play with the oversized bird. Oh yes, the design is based on the birds found in the designer’s home town of Veikkola, should you be wondering about its origin.
The bird has a polyethylene body, with legs in solid unstained ash. The latter meaning an indoor toy rather than something you would leave outside. Different colour options for the ‘bird’ too – white, yellow and orange and a price tag of £343.
