Manufactured in Argentina by Juguetes Mundial in the mid-1950s, El Zoo Mundial focuses on creatures from all around the Earth, from the kangaroo and anteater to the eagle and owl. Colorful and well-executed illustrations of both domestic and wild animals enhance the beauty of this board game. The game instructions (printed on the inside of the box top) and the brief animal description (printed on the back of each lotto card) are written in Spanish.
This excellent board game is in great vintage condition. Box, board and card graphics remain bright, and the cards are free of frayed edges, tears, creases, and splits. The box has some minor wear from age. This game is complete with six lotto boards and 54 cards that match the images of the lotto boards.
For the Spanish-speaking family or those learning the language, El Zoo Mundial offers hours of great entertainment. This board game would make a wonderful gift for both teacher and student of Spanish. For collectors of foreign-made games and toys, El Zoo Mundial is a fantastic and rare find.
