    Just for fun!! Does anyone recognize these?

    I found these two cute wooden figurines at an estate sale. I just had to try to find out what they are and what purpose they served! The girl is 5 inches tall by 2 inches wide. The boy is just a smidge taller at 5 and 1/4 inches and 2 inches wide. The hole for their arms is just about a 1 inch and 1/4 wide.

    Anyway, someone suggested that they were possibly pins for a child's game in which they were suspended on a bar. I think that is a high probability.

    What do you think?
