In the 1960's Cracker Jack produced a number of great little paper prizes. The booklets and comics were 16 pages and had color printing inside. They are pretty fragile with just a glue binding so often front and back cover are detached. The little put together animals are just great. It would have been fun for a kid to put together their own little paper zoo.

Dan; I'm just in heaven looking at these tiny booklets! Thanks for sharing them!
The little booklets are treasures, I love 'em!
I'm glad you made this blog.
I'll add a link at mine today.
thanks for the link - I have been to your blog and I love the look - very original.
Oh man, these are wonderful! Great stuff, Dan!
Wow...gorgeous cards. Thanks for posting!
I finally found a place that sells cracker jacks in the boxes. Thought I would share with everyone. They had all size in the bags also and those Peanuts in the Red and White striped bag. Here is two links I found on their site:
This one has both the Peanuts and Cracker Jacks
This is the one for Peanuts:
I used to love to buy Cracker Jacks for the prizes, now they are so lame. Does anyone know why they changed??
I enjoyed looking at your collection and I noticed that you have some of the miniature fairytale books that were prizes for a time. But not Rumpelstiltskin. I have Rumpelstiltskin dated 1966 vol 2 bk 8. I found it in an old jewelry box and it is in perfect condition. Any thoughts or interest?
