Rinehart and Winston Company. Included in this educational material set are five pieces each depicting a school age boy in action. Two boys have their fists up ready for a fight. One is calling out or whistling. One points at something he sees and the last looks quizzically on (perhaps at the boys duking it out?!) Each piece is die cut and has magnets on the back for making various scenes. The colors are vibrant and the detail wonderful in these vintage teaching tools.
Measurements in inches (approximately) :
Fighting Boy Extended Arm - 3 1/2 x 2
Fighting Boy Arms Up - 3 1/2 x 1 3/4
Whistling Boy - 4 x 2 1/2
Quizzical Boy - 3 1/2 x 1 1/2
Pointing Boy - 3 1/2 x 2 1/2
Each piece is in very good vintage condition with some bumping on the edges and mild scuffing. The boy with his punching hand extended has a crease along his arms and the boy with both fists up has a small crease along his legs. Magnets are affixed to the back of each piece and are in working order.
