Plastic Toys and Dolls

Arguably the world’s most ubiquitous man-made material, plastic has impacted nearly every industry.


When The Graduate‘s Mr. McGuire proclaimed, “There’s a great future in plastics,” it was more than a laugh line. The iconic quote is an allusion both to society’s reliance on and its love affair with plastic. Before the material became an integral part of our lives — used in everything from clothing to storage to beauty and beyond — people relied on earthly elements for manufacturing, a process as time-consuming as it was costly.


Soon after American inventor John Wesley Hyatt created celluloid, which could mimic luxury products like tortoiseshell and ivory, production hit fever pitch, and the floodgates opened for others to explore plastic’s full potential.


At 1stDibs, shop the luxurious side of plastics through beautiful furniture and decor.
