捷克玩具设计师Libuše Niklová(1934-1981)的第一款玩具设计诞生于1950年代。在之后的20多年里,这些简单怪趣、色彩明快、价格低廉的塑胶玩具,在捷克当年迂腐沉闷的玩具及工业设计领域产生了革命性的影响。她最负盛名的作品是1963年创作的一只黑白相间的手风琴猫,灵感竟是来源于拥有特殊手风琴管道的马桶冲水系统。这只猫不但可以发声,每个部件也都是可以活动的。之后,她相继设计了11种拥有类似结构的动物和小人。

Libuše Niklová revolutionized industrial toy design beginning in the 1950s with simple, sometimes surreal animal forms in rubber and plastic. One of Niklova’s most famous creations is the cat with the accordion body, which dates back to 1963.  Libuše Niklová saw the employees in the Fatra Napajedla factory developing a new toilet flush system that used a special accordion tube.  In this way the accordion cat was born!  Not only could you squeeze the tube body, but you could also make it move in all sorts of ways, which was pretty revolutionary at the time.  The cat was the first one of the tube collection, which consists of 11 toys in all – ten animals and one baby.
