My friends and I would go to Mr. Bulky's candy store to get all our birthday gifts, so we'd end up with trolls or this giant jawbreaker. After awhile, this candy would destroy your tongue.
we always got these at this awesome candy store across from our middle school right before school started
...thought the giant Jaw Breakers were disgusting...the way people carried them around in plastic bags.

Before panty hose when stockings came in two pieces and in a box. Also one needed a garter belt to complete the ordeal.
Remember when stockings came in a box???? Newman's hosiery in downtown South Bend, IN favorite color was cinnamon! MW
stockings in a #Vintage Styles| http://vintagestyles449.blogspot.com
Nylon stockings in a box. Not pantyhose - these were thigh high and you needed garters and girdles (or a garter belt). If they had a seam you had to make sure it was straight. - rear of leg -difficult to twist around in a full-length mirror to see.

sprinkler bottle to dampen clothes before ironing

ironing sprinkler bottle. An empty large pop bottle and the pop-in sprinkler topper. My mom sprinkled all of my dad's freshly laundered shirts, rolled them up, put them in a bag, and kept them in the fridge until she could iron them all. Usually the next day. No such thing as permanent press in those days.
Ironing sprinkler - in kindergarten we painted a Pepsi bottle red and gave it to our moms for Mother's Day. I still have it, from 1957!
ironing sprinkler. We sprinkled the clothes to be ironed, then rolled them up and put them in a pillowcase until they were ironed. Or Mom and I would put the pilowcase in a plastic bag in the refrigerator to keep the clothes moist if we couldn't get the ironing done at once. I still iron my clothes and use a plastic spray bottle. If you have a steam iron you don't really need to sprinkle clothes. And of course, there are all the wrinkle proof fabrics . Nana
Ironing Sprinklers. These little gadgets fit into a soda bottle filled with water. Instant sprinkler bottle for dampening clothes as you iron...Pre Steam Irons.

Ironing sprinkler bottle. Mom would sprinkle the clothes to be ironed. If she didn't finish, she would put the sprinkled clothes in the frig so they wouldn't mold!

Lulu and Tubby - "Little, Lulu, Little Lulu, with freckles on your chin; always in & out of trouble, but mostly always in; using mommy's make-up for the letters you write, using daddy's neckties for the tail of your kite..." Do you remember this song???
Childhood Memories •~• Little Lulu and Tubby comics
Loved this! A daily comic strip, entitled Little Lulu, was syndicated from June 5, 1950 through May 1969. Artists included Woody Kimbrell (1950–1964), Roger Armstrong (1964–1966), and Ed Nofziger (1966–1969). Little Lulu appeared in ten issues of Dell Comics' Four Color comic book series (#74, 97, 110, 115, 120, 131, 139, 146, 158, 165), before graduating to her own title: Marge's Little Lulu in 1948.
I LOVED Little Lulu cartoons and comic books
this magical toy brings back so many childhood memories of awe and wonder in what BEAUTY means to a 3 yr old child. Blessed images like the stain-glass windows in the small church my family attended. And I loved the way the BIG word sounded when I said it "KuH - Li iii DEEEE oooooo kOppppp" ---- with a great big puff of air at the end.
