Fun with Bobby and Sally

Found these the other day at the local swapshop. Made in 1961, they’re from a company called, Instructo Products. Basically they’re kits that come with common scenarios/figures of current life (1960s, that is) such as the father in his business attire, mother cooking, Suzy and Bobby in the neighborhood, nature, farm life, seasons, trees, etc. I found one kit which was based on American themes, one “exotic” cultures (both of these very stereotypical) and one country theme-cartoon style–this one was just plain weird.
