I saw these while browsing through the 1971 creative playthings catalogue.. and followed the same path ;-) (as far as pictures are concerned...)
Thank you for sharing some pictures of the "round and round and square book". If you ever find more information about Fredun Shapur, I will be mostly interested.
By the way, did you know abour "Schnurpfel" from NAEF ?

We just came across 1 lion, 1 leopard, and 3 bears. Anyone interested in purchasing can reach out to me via email. They're all still in the original packaging that says Trendon Toys. amfurnexchange@yahoo.com
