Published on: 14th August 2015

The Ambi Bird and Fish bath toys have been reintroduced by Galt Toys.

galt-480Designed by British toy designer Patrick Rylands, the toys were first launched in 1969.

The Bird and Fish are smooth shapes that are easy for small hands to grasp, have a comforting and tactile quality and only eyes for decoration. Based on Eskimo bone carvings in the British Museum, both bath toys contain internal ballasts keeping them upright as they bob and float in water.

John McDonnell, managing director at Galt Toys, said: “The Ambi Toys range is the life work of one of the UK’s most talented toy designers, whose beautiful Bird and Fish bath toys have delighted children at bath time for generations. We are hugely excited to be reintroducing the toys alongside five other new Ambi Toys this year, which are also based on Patrick’s original designs.”

The Bird and Fish toys are permanently on display at the V&A Museum of Childhood in London.
