Nestlé ‘Happy Families’

Happy Families published by Nestlé in 1935. You had to collect miniature paper “Cards” from chocolate bars and when you had the full set of 48 you sent them away to exchange for a full size pack. It is believed that the cards were made specially for Nestlé by C.W. Faulkner (who certainly made an earlier Happy Families pack for them in the 1910s), as the characters on these cards were never used by Faulkner anywhere else. The box was plain apart from one of the cards stuck on it. The inside wrapper was plain white paper.  See the Rules
