The "Jumble-Fits" animal puzzle first appeared in 1964 as a
frame-tray puzzle. "Figments" followed in 1965 and both were
packaged without borders and in plastic boxes. The "Amazing
Discovery of Alec Zandimer Plerp", created in 1967 during the
Cadaco years, was later repackaged and retitled "Smart People's
Story Puzzle". An audio story record was originally included.

The Cadaco company began marketing Cluster Puzzles in late
1965. The "Sports", "Make-Up", "Doodles" & "Whimsies" titles
appeared in 1966. The "Amazing Discovery..." in 1967.
