Children's building blocks, circa 1950s. Telling stories, reading fairy tales, block by block. Great vintage supplies, ready for mixed media assemblages.

Fourteen plastic cubes, lined on the inside with illustrated stories on paper. Each block has a tiny rolling ball inside, making a cool little rattle when they're handled. A quirky way to read a story and a great display for bookshelves or a baby's nursery.

Three fairy tales are represented; Three Little Pigs (the red blocks), Little Black Sambo (the green blocks) and The Gingerbread Man (the yellow blocks).

The Three Little Pigs is a complete set of 6 blocks, telling the entire story.

The Gingerbread Man has 5 blocks. The block with the beginning of the story is missing.

Little Black Sambo, alas, has only 3 of it's original 6 blocks.

The blocks have been well loved/used, some of the interior papers are torn, some are water stained. The plastic covers are scuffed. One of the Black Sambo blocks has a crack with a little chunk of the plastic missing.

Dimensions:
1 1/2" squares
