Festival Figures: North American and Hawaiian Set. 13" Cardboard Cutouts of "Children From Around the World in Their Colorful Holiday Dress." These items were published in 1978 by the United States Committee for UNICEF, 331 East 38th St., New York, NY 10016.

The package contains cardboard backs for the cutouts if used as a standup item, with very complete descriptions of their costumes, as well as the customs, habits, history, and celebrations of the groups represented, including what the children would wear everyday to school. There are eight cutouts representing: Girl of French (Acadian) Roots, Boy of Chinese Roots, Boy of African Roots, Girl of Irish and English Roots, Native American (Tlingit) Boy, Boy of Mixed Roots, Girl of Polynesian (Hawaiian) Roots, and Native American (Inuit) Girl. The figures are intended to promote the custom of Trick Or Treat for UNICEF which began in 1950, with the first group collecting $17.00

The material included suggests using the cutouts in schools and libraries, at international fairs or dinners, at convention booths, and it gives suggestions for lesson and activities.

Festival Figures were also produced for other areas of the world including, International, Mediterranean, Latin American and Caribbean Region, Africa, and Asia.

The cutouts are remarkably in brand new condition, although the envelope is somewhat worn.

I am pricing this item at $17.00 in honor of the first group of kids who went collecting for UNICEF.
