Toy prints

 

This category includes advertising prints, which are known as Hikifuda, and prints entirely or predominantly in red, which are known as aka-e and were said to protect against smallpox. None of these prints are listed in Kuniyoshi by Basil William Robinson (Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 1961).
