Way Back When: Toccata for Toy Trains

This is one of my favorite films done by Charles and Ray Eames, not because it features amazing furniture or architectural design but because of Charles' short dissertation in the beginning about what a toy should be. I honestly think about it every time I buy a toy for my son. I always wonder what Charles would think of all the plastic toys these days? Can a toy be plastic and be a "real toy"?

Please excuse me while I pay some bills...
