Girl

“Girl” card game was published by Pepys Games in 1955, featuring Wendy, Jinx, Belle, Robbie, Penny & Lettice Leefe. The game was inspired by the weekly comic magazine “Girl” for girls, founded by the Rev. Marcus Morris and published from 1951 to 1964, a sister paper to the “Eagle”. Girl was an "educational" magazine in that the heroines became involved in tales which had a moral basis. See the Box
