Here's a board game from days of Christmas past. This is one of two Christmas gift items I still have from my childhood. It's the original Mouse Trap Game from the Ideal Toy Company of Canada Ltd. (U.S. Patent Pending).
I had been asking Santa for this game for a couple (or more) years before I finally got it. I had to leave my silver dollar collection out for Santa, along with the milk and cookies, in order to have my wish granted. I still hope that someday "Santa" will return those silver dollars!
This game is complete with the original box, instructions, and all the internal compartments. It is missing one of the mouse game pieces, but I think I might have it somewhere in one of the "junk" boxes in storage. It has seen a LOT of playtime (and abuse) and the only broken part is the "Helping Hand" which was taped together and still holds to this day 50+ years later.
