Catalog Record | Enlarge Image | Adopt-a-Book Home

Paper toys were always a part of the McLoughlin inventory, from paper dolls, to foldable furniture. In the 1880s, the firm issued multiple sets of paper animals. The figures were printed on heavy stock and varnished with a glittery, eye catching coating.  This set is an interesting mix of wild animals like lions and monkeys, with domesticated beasts such as cows and goats.
