The New Pretty Village tabletop toy was one of the more elaborate paper toys issued by McLoughlin Brothers.  It was offered in three models (4 buildings, 8 buildings, or the whole village with sixteen buildings). Each set came with paper people, trees, and animals which stood up on metal clips and could be arranged on a paper mat that had the entire plan of the village set out with roads, a river, and farmland.
