This game/ puzzle contains all of its original pieces: the box with both lids, twelve multi-sided picture blocks and the accompanying storybook. Blocks can be assembled into six different scenes/ pictures which correspond to the illustrations in the small book. Because of its age, this piece is delicate and very fragile. The paper pieces are very dry and begin to flake off with only a small amount of force. Although the scenes with in the puzzle book are set in the cheery day time, the cover shows a life boat in a storm escaping a sinking ship. The subject matter and paper label itself are very dark and stand in contrast to the rest of the set.
