“Busy Bee” was published by Ed-U-Cards in 1959.  Like a number of other games, it’s a variation on dominoes, with animals instead of dots.  It makes for an unusual design, doesn’t it?

    It’s quite lovely.

    I love this, and the idea of animal dominoes.

    From what I hear, nobody could beat that Newgarden kid at “Busy Bee.”

    I’ve been reading Patricia Highsmith’s book: “The Animal Lover’s Book Of Beastly Murder” . I recommend it. These beasts look like they stepped right out of it: they’re smart and well connected.

    Mom taught my challenged sister”math” with this card game we wore it out.
    I would love a deck to give to her, thank you any one.
