Galt Toys is relaunching Ambi Toys' classic Bird and Fish bath toys.

Designed by British toy designer Patrick Rylands, the popular Bird and Fish bath toys were first introduced in 1969 and won Rylands the Duke of Edinburgh’s Prize for Elegant Design (now known as the Prince Philip Designers Prize).

Based on Eskimo bone carvings in the British Museum, both bath toys contain internal ballasts keeping them perfectly upright as they bob and float in water.

“The Ambi Toys range is the life work of one of the UK’s most talented toy designers, whose beautiful Bird and Fish bath toys have delighted children at bath time for generations," said John McDonnell, managing director at Galt Toys.

"We are hugely excited to be reintroducing the toys alongside five other new Ambi Toys this year, which are also based on Patrick’s original designs.”

The Ambi Toys Bird and Fish Bath Toys are suitable for children aged from 18 months and retail at £9.99.
