"Beautiful, and beautifully made"
(Chicago, IL USA)
The on-line images of the little cards don't do them justice. The pictures on the cards are pretty and a little quirky; the colors on the different cards compliment one another so the whole set looks great. They are really thick, heavy cardboard and look like they'll withstand years of play as well as the occasional stepping-on (or, if you've got a younger one, chewing upon). Both surfaces are waxed or plasticized or something that makes them glossy and so smooth. ....love these. If you can spare the extra $10, these are a little bit of lovely. There are 24 pairs of cards.
