Just for Fun - A Puzzle from 1932

Hidden Toys! The little girl in the picture is playing with her dolls' house. Some of the toys she can't find, but they are all in the picture. Can you find them for her? They are the cook, a baby doll, a teddy bear, a funny policeman, and a mouse. If you colour the puzzle when you have found them, it will make a very pretty sketch.

From The Brisbane Courier, 23 June 1932.
