Description
 
This board game was a promotional gimmick by Cadbury to help sell their drinking chocolate just as Britain was coming out of an economic depression. The game pieces were called Cococubs, which were hollow cast hand-painted lead figures of various anthropomorphic creatures including Whiskers Rabbit, Peter Pum, Mrs. Cackle Goose and Dumpty Doo. The game board could fold in half for easy storage. One side had the instructions, and the 'Story of the Game' with illustrations of Cococubs around border, and the other side featured the colorful playing boar.  Measures 15 1/2" x 7 1/2" (folded), 15 1/2" x 15" (unfolded).
