Patrick Rylands fish

Yellow plastic fish bath toy designed by Patrick Rylands for Trendon Toys Ltd in 1970. Our son's favorite toy to stare at, auspiciously, ...or I suppose because it floats about an inch in front of his face while he's in his Tummy Tub, or maybe because it was his mom's when she was little. Winner of the Duke of Edinburgh's Prize for Elegant Design, 1970.
More on Patrick Rylands- including a little Spiel Naef and Creative Playthings connection-from the January 1970 Design Journal magazine (via the awesome VADS) (click to enlarge):
