The first one was GF101 "Animals Around the World" in 1955 and the last one published was GF238 "Mary Poppins" in 1964. It's because of this history that I list all of these books under the "Golden" title since they can be found easier.

Additional Product Information"Astronauts" is a rare Golden Funtime Book, is #GF200 and was published in 1961. Yes, you DO have to be a rocket scientist to assemble THIS one!!! There are 6 pages done on heavy cardstock to punch out and create a model of one of our beloved space adventures of that era. Both covers are to be punched too, so that's included in the 6 pages. The only flaw to mention is some slight paper tanning shown in photo of backs of 2 pages. Photos take you straight through the book, front to back. It measures 13" x 7.5". The Giant or Golden Funtime books are difficult to find, are highly collectible and easily stored.
The publishing history for the Funtime Books was very diverse but the serial numbers remained consistent and in order no matter who did the publishing. The first one was GF101 "Animals Around the World" in 1955 and the last one published was GF238 "Mary Poppins" in 1964. They were called Giant Funtime Books until1958 and then became the Golden Funtime Books from there on. All of them had the same measurements and format. It's because of this history that I list all of these books under the "Golden" title since they can be found easier.
Please see photos for content and condition. All of the paper dolls that I offer are from estates and from other homes. I don't know the previous storage history. My collection is kept in a smoke/pet free area of my home with a dehumidifier running 24/7. I have a poor sense of smell at my age and am unable to detect odors. People smoked way back when, so that could linger and I would not be aware of it. I try and list all of the flaws with any paper dolls that I sell.
Please, Pay Pal only and I only ship to the continental US.
