Snow White "Safety Blocks" by Halsam

A boxed set of 18 wooden blocks produced by Halsam, referred to as "Safety Blocks" because of their non-toxic colors and rounded corners and edges. Printed on the side of the box is "By special permission of Walt Disney Enterprises" which dates the set to circa 1938.

The blocks feature raised images of Snow White (two different poses), the Prince, the Seven Dwarfs, plus the ever-popular Donald Duck.

Box cover and side panels.

  1. I find the choice of cover art interesting. It's a great piece, I haven't see the Snow White inspection scence on merchandise often. Very fun. Thanks.

    1. Glad you like it 1937. I agree. It's also a slightly different rendering of the scene so it has a kind of freshness about it.
