A set of Berbis wooden building blocks, in its original wooden slide-top storage box.

The sliding lid has a coloured label showing two children playing on the floor with a variety of models, and the legend:

"BERBIS" interlocking wooden building blocks
Sliding box lid with sticker graphic

The box

The label has a red edge border with a yellow interior border, the two children are playing on a blue carpet, against two yellow walls. Text is blue.

The figures on some other Berbis labels were based on more abstract and geometrical cartoon figures, reflecting the stylised nature of the blocks.
