 I kept some when I was in my teens. Some were delivered (by railway express) when my elderly maternal grandmother was visiting. When the railway express man handed her the little wooden box, he asked her "Lady, do you know what's in this box?"Maybe she thought he was teasing. 
In today's pervasively  paternalistic state, it's hard to imagine kids (or grandmothers) having that sort of experience. Jim McKenney
