The hungry mouse in the cheese house

This is just one of those weird generic things that the Imperial Toy Corporation was good at in the 1970s. Rubber mice and a fake bit o’cheese, not sure what the  point is but I bet kids wanted it. Not so much with collectors, I nabbed two of these for $0.99 just in time to include it in the book.

    I don't recall the cardback or getting this on any specific occasion but I know for a fact I had that cheese and at least one of those mice as a kid (the larger one.)

    Good times.
