Description Small cardboard box with "Funni-face Jigsaw Game for the young and the not so young" in yellow on red band. Has a man's face on cover with red and yellow. Small logo for "Mere for merriment"

On the back of the box is "How to get the fun out of Funni-face. This package contains 1 complete head and 3 additional profile or faces. Each of the 4 faces is cut into five jigsaw pieces in such a way that any forehead may be taken from any face and fitted into any other face. Similarly the other sections of the face may be exchanged, so that altogether many hundreds of different faces may be formed. This will interest and amuse "children" of all ages."
Inside the box is the complete head, and all the pats for the 4 faces. Also a small card where someone has handwritten combinations possibly in an attempt to make the many hundreds of faces!
