An upside down lollypop? A tangled Yo-Yo? Don't ponder on it for too long or you'll start thinking all kinds of things and have to visit a psychotherapist.
Anyway, whatever re:creation's logo is, it just somehow works.
#09: Drumond Park
Here's a game for you... See how long it takes you to work out what the light blue words are in Drumond Park's logo.
Although this logo is very much of its time, it's still as... err... striking as ever.
#07: Micro Scooters
Being striking and clever (but not so strikingly clever that you become annoying) is a hard balancing act for a logo designer to get right. Luckily Micro Scooters know more about balance than your average physics teacher - and it shows in their choice of logo.
A controversially low entry for the king of construction? Maybe. It's an undeniable design classic. Just wouldn't want it on my t-shirt.
As the only 3D design in our top 10, Mookie's logo has a brilliant sense of energy. A masterclass in brand representation.
Red, white and blue; makes you proud to be British. What? They're American..?
"Dear Mr Kettler, we're the first printer in the county to get one of these cutting-edge, full-colour printers. I think I know how to put this technology to good use..."
This is, of course, the start of a completely fictional conversation, but it could have happened, right? Not that it's important how the real conversation went back in 1949. It's just a great logo and has stood the test of time brilliantly.
Plus... despite the pseudo rainbow, it doesn't look like an advert for a Gay Pride march. And that's not easy to pull off.
#02: VIVID IMAGINATIONS
I've never been a Page Boy, but if I had, no doubt I would have been shoved in a pink suit and a green tie. Would I have pulled it off? No of course not; which makes it all the more galling that Vivid can do it with such finesse.
I'd have loved to have been a fly on the wall when the logo designer did his "bull with oversized red horns standing on top of the word BIG" pitch. No idea why that's a suitable metaphor for a company making children's ride-ons, but it's a design classic - and we absolutely love it.
