    Default Shops made of 3D card?

    Did anyone else have or does anyone remember little shops made of card that were 3D in the 80's? I vaugely remember having around 5 or so. There was a flower shop, maybe a bakery and butchers, not sure. But they were cool and I can't ever find pictures on the internet!

    I know dad made a couple of card models of some Victorian or Edwardian shops in the early to mid 90's.The interiors were very detailed.Especially the butcher shop.

    They may of come from our local museum. I will have to ask him when he's around.

    Just asked dad,He cannot remember much about them apart from they were purchased as a book,then the parts were either pushed or cut out and glued together. He did say a few naughty words then went on to say that was years ago.

    Thank you. I somehow don't think they were from a cereal packet, but it's not out of the question. We did get Kelloggs. It's also possible they came in some kind of book. I don't remember gluing them together so they probably pushed out.

    Iíve seen a few new construction Ďtoysí made out of cardboard rather than plastic .. I think theyíre pointless as they donít look as good , donít Ď playí as well and they certainly wonít last anywhere near as long either

    Maybe thatís why we donít see many CoOps around these days.
