KEWPIE DOLL GAME (c) 1963 by Parker Brothers. This game was licensed by Cameo Doll Products Co., Inc. with the Kewpie design and copyright by Rose O'Neill.
The Kewpie Story: The setting of this game is a beach at the seashore where the Kewpies are running, playing and collecting colorful shells. Their attention is brought to the sad mermaid who has become stranded in a sand castle.
The object of the game is to be the player who finishes with the most shells. The game consists of a scallop shell playing board, set of 32 Kewpie cards, colorful shells (which are real), and four Kewpie doll playing pieces (pink, blue, yellow, green). The playing pieces look just like naked Kewpie dolls.
The box lid has some edge wear, signs of age, soil and two taped corners. There is some surface paper loss where a price tag and tape at both sides were removed. The box bottom has a split corner. The playing board has some light soil and wear. Overall the game is in pretty good condition and complete. It is a hard-to-find game in any condition.
