The handmade and painted toy replicas - an elephant, rhinoceros, walrus, lion and camel - ideally represent Sutnar's concept of the modern toy. The main idea combines the principles of new pedagogical practices, abstract art and the originally intended cheap industrial production. The body is made of solid beech wood, the other parts of soft solid wood. Reproduction of the originals stored in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague.
