From back of the box:
Children's card games reached the height of popularity in the 50s and 60s, when many American families gathered around the table for an evening of playing cards. At first, children had to make do with worn-out decks passed down from their parents, but manufacturers soon realized there was a huge market for card games designed for children. Games featuring whimsical art and easy-to-follow instructions were soon available in variety and toy stores across the country. This set is a faithful reproduction of four classics from the Whitman Publishing Company.
