Who has $700 to drop on the nursery?

If you love anthropomorphic 1970s furniture design and have $695 to spend for your little one's bedroom, you should grab your credit card and buy one of these immediatamente.

Based on the 1973 "Pony" chair by Eero Aarnio (above), the "Giddy Up" has cashmere/poly cover over a fiberglass base.
All together - AWWWW!

lol - these are cute - but since I have boys - I see these items one would wrestle with, or possibly jump onto from the top bunk...:) I do think they look pretty fun though.

Appletree - It's not technically correct, but it sounds smart. ;)

I'm glad my children are no longer small, because I'm pretty sure I would really want to get them one of these!

I went the cheap route and got one of his plastic Puppies http://bit.ly/bAQqE1...much better for my wallet! And it still gets loved and used after all these years!

Nursery?! I want that sucker for myself.

Adorable.

But, how in the heck do you clean them? HELLO- cashmere?

I guess if you have the money to spend on something like this, you aren't concerned about cleaning it. Make no mistake- if I had this kind of disposable income and any prospects of having a 4th, this would be my first purchase.

Not me, as to the cash. But darn it, he's a cutie.

As I live in a c.1972 anthropomorphic house these will be perfect Raina. Slight problem though about the Nursery - at 54 the Man-Of-The-House recently told me my 'eggs are too old', I thought he was being very harsh. Millie ^_^

I saw that thing in a catalog that arrived yesterday and thought it was awesome. For a second, I actually wondered if my brother and sister-in-law would be furious if it showed up at their house.
