I enjoyed playing card games as a child. Fish, Slap Jack, War and Old Maid were just a few of the card games that I enjoyed. When I think back to what it felt like to play card games with a parent or older sibling is the sense of physical and emotional closeness. It was an intimate moment in which parent and child played according to the same rules, a rare moment in a child's life.
I chanced across some children's card games from the 1920's that really caught my eye. They were so contemporary for that time with themes from dancing the Charleston to the newly popular radio.
I love the absurdity of the frogs juxtaposed with people looking like they are going out to the theatre in this wonderful Jiggle-Joggle Frog Race Game, Gelvum.
