Instructo Activity Kit:  The Classification Game
1 Instructo Activity Kit: The Classification Game
Philadelphia, PA, Instructo Products, 1966, Boxed Set Very Good 
This is a boxed set of four cardboard brightly colored scenes that fit together to stand up in a three dimensional display: a toy collection, clothes closet, zoo, and grocery. Each scene has twelve printed cards of images that go with the scene. The game has no instructions, but apparently the object is to classify the image cards into the correct scenario. Does the bunny go in the grocery store, or the closet? Very cool 1960's graphics. The printed cardboard is quite thick and heavy. Box is 11 1/2"w x 9"h x 3"h and has some taped tears and a masking tape label on it. 132373

Wooden Cube Puzzles - Six Different Pictures
4 Wooden Cube Puzzles - Six Different Pictures
Boxed Set Good 
This is a set of 20 wooden cubes (1 1/2" square) - each side printed with part of a puzzle. The cubes are a bit worn at the edges, and the box is the cover only, with tears at the corner. The puzzle cubes can be put together to make six different farm scenes. The box is the cover only (bottom missing). The image on the cover of the box and four other paper pictures included show what the puzzles make - the sixth puzzle is a mystery since that picture is missing. No date, circa 1950's. I put together the horse and colt puzzle - harder than you'd think! Ages 3+. 132372
