A Whitman Bobbsey Twins Boxed Set

I saw an interesting Bobbsey Twins boxed set on eBay recently. The boxed set was issued by Whitman. The auction was item #290272387506. Here are the seller's pictures:

This boxed set is from the early 1960s. If I collected Bobbsey Twins books, I would have wanted it in my collection. As it is, I wouldn't mind having it, but I don't have enough room for the books that I do have.

The Boxcar Children also have boxed sets from the 1990s with a red boxcar for volumes 1-4 and a blue one for 5-8. Looks like amazon lists several others, but I don't see any photos there.

I have a "boxed edition" of the old Brother and Sister series by Josephine Lawrence published by Cupples & Leon, but it's just solid maroon, so although it perfectly fits the three volumes, I'm not positive that it originally came with it.

As for the Bobbseys, the 75th Anniversary Collector's Edition came in a 3-volume boxed set, and I've also seen a Goldsmith 3-volume boxed set for sale.
