FAB Cards

The FAB cards from Saxoncourt Publishing have been a favourite of mine since I first started teaching English in Japan. Bright colours, simple pictures, just the right size for small hands and great for quick games to reinforce understanding. Unfortunately, they are no longer available in Japan, so I'm looking for a replacement.

Although recently I've started to have some doubts about the pictures...

Does that really look like a television to today's children?

Do children today even know what a radio is?

And what's that? An alarm clock? Part of dad's stereo system? A DVD player? 

The best answer I've received recently for the VCR picture is from a boy who said he had seen one of these machines recently...dumped in his local park!!
