Penguin Donkey 1, 2 or 3?

I often wonder if it's possible to squeeze one of these Isokon Plus delights in to my home. Sadly, I think it will have to wait until we have more space. I'm certain that one day I will find the perfect spot... but then I'll have to decide which one of the three to pick. That'll be tough.

The original Penguin Donkey, designed in 1939 by Egon Riss:

The Penguin Donkey 2, designed in 1963 by Ernest Race:

OR The Donkey 3, designed in 2003 by Azumi:

How do you decide?! Once I have the space, I'll let you know...
