Please help me identify a toy from my past, which I used circa 1970s.
It was a shiny plastic peg board, I think mainly blue, with holes that
were about 3-4 mm in diameter. The pegs were little squares,
rectangles and triangles which could be used to create pictures. The
squares were about 1cm on a side and the other shapes were about the
same magnitude. The shapes were (I think) white, yellow and red. It
was a great toy, but I can't remember what it was called or anything
else about it!
