Patrick Rylands toys

These beautifully tactile objects would look pleasing on a shelf as decoration... but, in fact, this aesthetically pleasing pair are children's bath toys, from the V&A shop's new season range.

Designed by Patrick Rylands in the 1970s, the simply named 'Fish' and 'Bird' plastic toys have just been reissued. Rylands, who trained as a ceramicist before going on to win many awards for his well-designed toys, is also responsible for PlayPlax, below, another vintage plaything (1966) that would look rather good on a shelf. Bird and Fish cost £19.90 each.
