Fake Rubber Stamp Set

This was a toy wooden calculator I found in a charity shop.  I used to make rubber stamp sets back in the 90's and this reminded me of some of those. I would find images like this and get them made into rubber dies by professional rubber die makers or trace them onto erasers to hand cut myself.  I also like the idea that you could swap them around to make a different designs.
