In the early 1970's my wife's mother purchased two sets of toys
(described below), which they believe were from the UNICEF catalog. 
My wife contacted UNICEF two years ago, however, and their assistant
director of consumer mail order said that she researched UNICEF's
catalog archives, but did not find a record of the toy my wife
described.  She added, "Perhaps they were purchased from another fund
raising organization associated with children such as Save the

Each set contained a cloth family, each piece about one-and-a-half
inches high with mother, father and (my wife believes) two children. 
These family pieces were beanbags covered in polyester fabric.  The
faces and clothing details were printed on this fabric.

My wife believes the manufacturer made 4 sets in total, and my wife
had 2 of these: an African family and an Eskimo family.  Each set
included a house for the family, and both the African and Eskimo
houses were dome-shaped (the Eskimo house was an igloo).  Each house
may have had a handle on top.

I would like a photo, or any other information about this set, because
I am attempting an internet search to find a used set.  Thank you very
much for your help!
