|The picture shows the front and back of this RARE Unused 1944 C. Carey Cloud Acrobatic Figures Paper Toy Set. The rest of the figures are inside and not shown. The horizontal lines seen in the pictures are not on the pages. This is from doing multiple scans. This old paper toy is colorfully printed on heavy stock paper. It was designed by the famous Cracker Jack prize designer C. Carey Cloud. This set came from his Art studio and was not purchased from a store. Inside there is a story for the four characters. It is marked:|
CLOUDCREST CREATIONS, CHICAGO.
The acrobatic figures in this set were also used (in a smaller version) as Cracker Jack prizes in the 1940's (see my auction # ). The characters in this larger set include:
Socio the Clown
Gorra the Monkey
Rojo the Parrot
Assembly instructions are also inside. When it is completely opened it measures 9-1/4" x 26-1/8". It is very colorful and would look nice framed. It has never been used and all of the parts are unpunched mint condition.
