"Snap" card game,produced by Medallion Press in 1970.
If it's true that the simple pleasures in life really are the best,then I suppose "Snap" is pretty hard to beat.
And here we have the Camberwick version -allbeit in a very battered box.
The set has 11 different picture cards,with 4 copies of each ie. 44 in total plus a blank.
The "blank" is the 1st one shown below.And I've shown the reverse side,because it's what you'll find on all 44.
You also get the added bonus of stills that were specially staged for the purpose,rather than just lifted directly from the broadcast footage.
And it also has the rather unusual distinction of being printed in Austria.
A country I can't recall featuring in the production of any other UK toys or books of the period.
Strange but true !
Has "Snap" died a death these days ? I've no idea.
But if it hasn't I'd imagine it's probably slowly shuffling off into toy oblivion along with the likes of
Tiddlywinks and Snakes & Ladders.
And it looks like this particular example may well have struggled to capture the imagination even as far back as 1970, simply because there was no follow-up Trumpton version.
And whilst it's a long way from being on Trumptonalia's "most endangered" list,it's not nearly as easy-to-find as you might expect.
But if you're looking for a cheap and colourful bit of Trumptonalia then it's well worth the look.
Footnote for trivia fans ....
.... the photo that appears on the box was also used on the sleeve of one of the LP's,as well as a book cover
.... and the image was also flipped and used for the 1st set of 4 cards shown below.
