Children are attracted by the bright colors and the uncoventional forms of Eero Aarnio's designs.... and especially the Pony looks like an overdimensional toy. But it is not a toy Eero Aarnio intended to create with the Pony. The dimensions are conformed to adult size.
The Pony shows the play of fantasy which is so characteristic for Eero Aarnio, and in this comfortable seat it might carry you to unknown fields of your own imagination. To quote Eero Aarnio: "A chair is a chair, is a chair... but a seat does not necessarily have to be a chair, it could even be a small and soft Pony on which you can 'ride' or sit sideways."
