Ahhh.....
It's not often that I'm glad I grew at this particular time period. Usually you will find me wondering what it would be like to live during the roaring 20's or the 30's or hells bells ANY other time then this one. And then I come across something vintage that just makes me GLAD I'm here and now.

If you are a social studies teacher, a women's history teacher, a sociology teacher - this one is for you. If you're a mom with teenage daughters who are confused about their role in society and would get a kick out of trying to grasp history - this - is also for you.

Imagine this:

You are a young girl.
It's 1966.
Things are changing all around you - but still - there are jobs for "YOU" and there are jobs for men. This game has 6 jobs - Nurse, Airline Hostess, Model, Actress, Teacher and Ballerina - that's it!
I suppose that would be "progress" - there is no "Homemaker" job.......

There are heart shaped cards and orange circle cards - the orange circle cards are pictured on my Facebook page if you'd care to look. The hearts are just ... read em and weep.
Overweight? Too bad - can't be an airline hostess, ballet dancer or a model....
Pretty? Model or Actress for you!
You get too excited? Bad for the Airline Hostess and the Nurse....
.......

I just wonder if this game created a backlash amongst mothers when it came out......
I sure hope so.

I listed it under "Toy Chest" in the shop, but really - I'm thinking it should go in the attic....

The game is complete except for one card. The box is complete but the corners are torn.
