Vintage didactic boards


Recently at school Jacob learnt about traffic, so this vintage didactic board came in handy. He was a bit puzzled since no policeman of ours wears gloves like the ones pictured but I love having the opportunity of broadening his sense and knowledge of other cultures and hence difference in styles. 
 
These boards were used to teach professions. I've got only these two, my sister's got a different pair, generously given to us by our mother.

As Jacob's teacher encourages the children to re-tell stories and invent them, we used the boards for that too.

These are great Maya! What a fun way to teach children something new! So creative, too, might trigger the kids to create something nice, too!

These puzzles are so cool. I can see it being used as teaching and as a piece of art.
