Most game manufacturers developed games, at one time or another, that were instructive. Nearly all games in the mid-nineteenth century sought to teach morals or good behavior with their play, some later games did the same. This may be partly related to the fact that it is parents who generally buy the games for their children. Mother's Helper Game is one such plaything. A "note to mother" in the instructions states that the game teaches reading skills as well as helping "teach your children good habits." This was likely not a really popular seller.
