Babar Plush Toy
13" Babar the Elephant plush toy.
We've released our second collaboration with Babar: a unisex summer capsule for Babar's 90th anniversary. The collection uses illustrations from the original Babar books by Jean de Brunhoff and his son, Laurent de Brunhoff, including an illustration of Babar riding a bicycle with a baguette in his bag and an iconic image of Babar with his family at a stylish 1960s pool party.
"Babar has always been one of my favorite characters in all of literature," says our founder Jack Carlson. "He's stylish, kind, worldly -- all the things I aspired to be when I was growing up. When we launched our collaboration with Babar this past winter, it was one of my favorite things Rowing Blazers has ever done, and I was so thrilled to see how well it resonated with our community. But the world of Babar is so rich, and we only scratched the surface."
