Animal Magnets Game - Reproduction of 1934 English Cigarette Cards - A wonderful mix of memorabilia.

Have fun splicing together new and exotic species with bizarre names and strange bodies.

Create all sorts of curious animals by mixing up their heads, bodies and hind ends.
Let kids' imaginations go wild!

There are 16 animals comprising a set of 48 magnetic cards.
This makes 4,096 different animal combinations, each with a different, often funny name.

Play on your fridge, steel whiteboard, baking sheet.

The original cigarette cards were created in 1934 by the Imperial Tobacco Company as part of their “Unnatural History” series. They were just one of hundreds of different sets of cigarette cards produced in the early 20th century.

Each magnet is about 2.3x1 inch. Packaged in a metal tin.

Review from customer (Oct 21, 2020)

Hi Mark,

My friend Jane purchased the Animalloys and Animal Connections games from your booth at the Farmer's Market as a 3rd birthday gift for my daughter. I just wanted to give you some feedback - they are both awesome!

The Animalloys tiles are perfect for use on an easel whiteboard. My daughter really enjoys trying to figure out how to put the animals together but she also thinks it's hilarious to mix up different heads, bodies, and tails and create "new" animals. The animals are also quite interesting - it is neat for her to see new and different animals that she hasn’t seen before.

The small connection tiles are great for learning different animal characteristics. I have to help her with the words since she doesn't read yet, but she can already make various connections between animals and descriptors. I think these are great learning tools and they will grow will her as she learns to read. I also love the little wooden box they came in - it’s so cute!

I have attached a few photos. Thank you for these great products - I'm really glad my friend purchased them!
All the best with your games,

I love it! It's for my wedding guestbook. The guests will sign around our picture. Mark got back to me right away when I had questions. He worked with me on the changes I had. Great experience. It's exactly what I envisioned and more. Thanks Mark! Dawn

This Seller was great to work with!! I explained the set of cards was for my adult brother who is recovering from a brain injury. I mentioned that he raises sheep on a small farm. The Seller customized a set based on my comments-which he did not have to do! I’ve seen the cards through zoom and they appear to be of great quality. Delivery was as promised.

It's stunning! The box it came in is so beautiful and the communication with the seller was wonderful and thorough. Thank you so much, I'm so excited to give this as a gift (and now I think I want one for me too, ha ha).
