I could only find a patent online that showed it dating to 1956, no other information was available. The set appears to be in excellent condition and well made. The stand in constructed of wood and targets are paper cardboard. There are 4 blow guns that measure 36 long, and 12 colored darts to match the color tip of the blow gun.
One of the darts is missing the end piece. There are 4 wood beaded necklaces that each player were wear to match there colored blow gun.
The box is in good condition and has a classic picture of a Pygmy on it. There are no instructions, but it is easy to assemble and use. Please look at the pictures and judge it for yourself. I doubt you will come across another one of these.
