Jaymar Wooden Inlay Puzzles - Do They Exist?

One of the interesting things about reading through the Character Merchandising Division catalog is seeing just how many items were planned that seem to have not been produced.  Jaymar as we know did a vast number of puzzles across the entire spectrum of Disney characters, in a variety of formats.  But this page from the Alice CMD announces a new format, the Jaymar Wooden Inlay Puzzles.
This announcement prominently features art for four different Alice puzzles in this wooden inlay format.  I'm sure most of you have played with this kind of puzzle when you were a wee tot, big wooden board with very large pieces that fit nicely into place.  I myself have a vivid memory of playing with one when I was on Romper Room waaaaaaay back in 1969 at the ripe old age of 4.
Unfortunately it appears as though these particular puzzles were never made.  I've never seen nor even heard of one in existence.  Perhaps by the time the puzzles were ready to be manufactured the writing was on the wall for Alice and Jaymar cancelled them.  Of course this is all speculation on my part, and if there is anyone out there with one or a picture of one, please share!
