"Playtime Surprises" has vintage illustrations by Ernest Nister that change as a tab is pulled. The back cover reads, "Enchanting illustrations of Victorian children in the settings of yesteryear come to life with intricate "Venetian blind" changing picture mechanicals. These rare antique originals, first published by Ernest Nister of London in the late 19th century, are exquisitely reproduced and accompanied by delightful verses of the day."

The book contains six panels and is in good working condition. There is some extremely mild bumping on the book's corners. The pages are clean and the mechanics are in working condition. There are some mild creases where the tabs are pulled but all are intact and in working order.
