That looks, for all the world, like Geoffrey the Giraffe, Toys R Us' mascot.

I'll not quibble, but the giraffe looks like a scholar to me. ;o)

John, I thought the same thing and mentioned it on the Facebook update. For all I know, the card could have come from a Toys R Us set.

2 divided by zero is not zero but rather undefined, contrary to what's in the upper corner on the other side of the card.

@John - I had those exact flash cards, and you are correct, they are/were a Toys-R-Us brand, and that is in fact Geoffrey the Giraffe, circa 1978-83.

Okay, seriously? Dividing by zero on children's flash cards?! YOU CAN'T DIVIDE BY ZERO!
