1950s post office game.


This is a bit of information, nothing to do with this game.


The group playing is divided into a group of boys and a group of girls. One group (boys or girls) goes into another space or room, such as a bedroom, which is called "the post office." To play, each person from the stationary group individually visits "the post office"-- once there, they receive a kiss from every member in the room.

Once everyone in the first group has taken a turn, the other group begins sending members to the first room. In this way every member of both groups is guaranteed a kiss from every member of the opposite sex.

From my personal postcard collection.

    You know something Al my three year old grandson shows us how to work the computer and he is not at nursery yet. He would bundle all this and put it in his tractor for the dump as he would think it was rubbish.

    Boy this one jogged a few memories......I think ours was a grocery store version of this idea! Do you remember the John Bull printing sets? Those little rubber letters you used to print your own notices....

    Yes mando we are reminiscing again, I had the post office but I used to play shops as well and I remember the John Bull sets somebody I know had one. We had a lot of good things to play with.

    OMG, I actually had one of those! I especially remember the little rubber stamp and ink pad! "Thanks for the memory..."!

    I stayed in a block of 6 flats and all of us boys and girls played this together.

    What about the little stamps with teddies and gollies on them and tiny envelopes too. I think there were little weighing scales too. We used to get one of these sets most Christmases. Thanks for the memories!!

    Thank you for sharing

    The last time I seen this game was when I was in Hong Kong in the early seventies and my nephew sent me little air-mail envelopes in his mothers envelope and I still have them to this day as they are tiny little envelopes and he's telling me about school.

    Thank you.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called La Belle Epoque ca.1890 - ca.1914 incl. ArtDeco and ArtNouveau, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    Great set. (In a nasal drone): Window number four, please. One thing hasn't changed- the blonde girl dressed in mum's clothes.
