Children’s Card Games (84)

John Jaques & Son, of Thornton Heath, published “French for Fun.”  The box promises that it’s “The most popular game ever published.”  That’s nice to know.  It’s yet another variation on the model of “Happy Families,” with sober renditions of food and household items to teach vocabulary.  This is the only omelet I’ve seen depicted in a card game; I’ve never thought about it, but they must be difficult to draw.

    pathetic drawing. Looks like the top of a bald man with green hair. It’s a challenge to draw an omelette, for sure.
