English family game counters



 

Another unknown conundrum Im looking for help with. This small set of seven tokens turned up last month at a favourite charity shop. I think they must be from a game and are used as counters. They dont appear to have much age to them, but they do have some charm. It looks as if they represent four generations of one family; Great grandparents, grandparents, mother and father, and one son. They only measure 35mm and have no markings, as far as I can see.


 Hopefully some bright spark will be able to help. I look forward to hearing from you.......

Now then. Something is tugging my brain. Are they famous people - collectables free with something? Cereal?

I know what you mean, they do have a certain celebrity status to them, but they're almost a little too well made for a promotional cereal gift. The plastics just a bit too heavy!

Lets hope someone else knows a bit more....Talking of which, I did find out about the seated Giraffe I posted a while back!

Hello,

At first glance i thought they could be counters for the game Cluedo. Mrs Peacock, Professor Plum, Colonel Mustard, Miss Scarlett and Mrs White all seem to fit!
However, I have now clue who the other two could be and where Rv Green is...

Also, I can't tell for sure but it looks like the white token is wearing a chef's hat,? Mrs White was the cook.
