Animal croquet from China in the maybe 70s

More consumer product archaeology. Found this in a display case at my grand mothers old house:

AnimalCroquetI’m guessing this is pre-1973 and the “China” refers to what we now call Taiwan. The character for “State” is written in traditional Chineze1, so I don’t think it is “mainland” Chineze.

All this aside, it is a little strange and somewhat freaky. It cost 1.50 USD according to the price tag on the back of the box. Note the strange, possibly custom, font for “Croquet”.


  1. A further post to follow on spelling Chineze “incorrectly”.
