The invention provides an elongate folded card, for example of the same size as a mailable postcard when fully folded, which bears on one of its faces when fully folded a display of an entertainment nature such as a representation of playing pieces of a game, or one of a series of collectable items such as famous footballers, or a panel of a cartoon strip, whereas on its other face or faces there is provided a display of material having an educational aspect, for example commercial subject matter. In a first preferred form, the card, when fully folded, has the dimensions of a playing card so as to permit formation of a 'pack' of playing cards. In another preferred form, the card when fully folded has the shape and dimensions of a mailable postcard, so as to permit formation of a mailable pack of cards of postcard size.
