Happy St. George's Day

Thinking about today being St. George's Day reminded me of this toy ...
 ... probably not St. George as the box has "Foreign" printed on the bottom.  This was a favourite toy of mine when I was little.
 I recently saw a box of picture blocks the same as mine on display in Norwich Castle Museum.  Now I know I must be getting old!! :)  I couldn't resist a quick play and turned the blocks to recreate the Little Red Riding Hood picture.
 There are four other designs,

 including the one on the lid.
Happy Memories of playing on the kitchen floor whilst my Mum worked nearby.
