Betsy Wetsy dolls may have been the first "life-like" dolls. We fed them bottles of water which then ran out into their diapers. Such fun!

Betsy Wetsy was one of the most popular drink and wet dolls of the Baby Boom era, originally issued by the Ideal Toy Company of New York in 1935. The doll's special feature was simulating urination after a fluid was poured into her open mouth. It saw a spike in popularity in the 1950s.
Betsywetsy Doll...one of my brothers put ink, in my Betsy Wetsy doll's tear hole openings, by her eyes... Then, later on, when I "fed" her the bottle of water, the blue ink came out, staining her cheeks! :-( At least, he got in trouble for it. ;-) we scoured her poor cheeks clean but she was never the same.
Betsy Wetsy doll. Oh, my gosh! Mine came with a plastic pink bathtub and a bag of Apple Blossom bubble bath. Totally awesome!
Betsy Wetsy Doll... - I had this doll when I was little.

If Nancy Was a Cartoon Character Who Featured on a US Postage Stamp Eating an Ice Cream Cone | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
"Nancy," created by Ernie Bushmiller (1905-1982). This postage stamp is 1 of 20 in the USPS Comic Strip Classics series of 1995.
I loved Nancy comics along with some others. When we went to town on the week-end I always had a quarter to spend. Came home with a candy bar, a comic book, and an ice cream cone to eat on the way back. Plus my brother and I got to ride on the back of the old flat bed farm truck and let the wind blow through our hair. Good life for kids.

The first words I ever read was from a Nancy comic strip. My older brother, Jim, taught me.

This was where we did our research! Encyclopedias. I had this set.
Book Encyclopedias, 70 S, Childhood Memories, Memories Childhood, 1980 S, Remember Growing, Fond Memories, 1960 S
World Book Encyclopedias -and the men who would go from door to door selling them each year...my parents fell for it....don't know if we ever used them...but we had them...1960-s
Encyclopedias. These were our "Internet" and oh how I hated them so! We had about 70 on our shelf and it would take most of your homework time just trying to figure out which book the required information was in and oftentimes you still couldn't find anything very helpful! #Childhood Memories #1970s #1980s
The World Book Encyclopedia-Never realized how the next generation will rarely use these if at all bc of the internet now.
I believed that if I read every volume of the World Book Encyclopedia, I would know everything there was to know. Reading it now, or any encyclopedia for that matter, these are very biased publications that, while containing useful and interesting information, definitely support a world view congenial to whatever country published them.
This was where we did our research! World Book Encyclopedias not google! Man I remember using these at my Nana's for school projects!
World Book Encyclopedia, the parents always ordered new sets of these. I remember writing many a report for school using these sets
World Book Encyclopedias - used these for reports all the time before we got internet at home (and even then dial-up took FOREVER)
This was where we did our research! World Book Encyclopedias - had a set - no internet
World Book Encyclopedia=yesterday's internet. read them cover to cover, learned a lot!
Books for sale in Louisiana - buy and sell new and used books - book classifieds
.and they adjusted with the handy-dandy key as your feet grew.

Childhood Memories, Speedy Plop, 1950, Alka Seltzer, Baby Boomer, Tv Commercial
Alka-Seltzer was first marketed in 1931, developed by Maurice Treener in Elkhart, IN, originally marketed as a cure-all, even "the blahs." Speedy Alka-Seltzer was introduced in 1951 and was originally called "Sparky." He proclaimed Alka-Seltzer's virtues and sang the "Plop, plop, fizz, fizz" song in his high squeaky voice. Alka-Seltzer is now owned by Bayer Schering Pharma AG, Germany.
One of the first TV Commercials I remember...plop, plop, fizz fizz, oh what a relief it is... :)
Alka Seltzer -- "Plop-plop, fizz-fizz....... oh, what a relief it is!" --Speedy Alka Seltzer

Mr. ZIP; I remember the big ad campaigns to remind everyone to learn and use their new ZIP codes.
Blast, 70S, Guy, Hard Time, 60S, Mailboxes
Mr. ZIP; symbol of the ad campaigns used to remind everyone to learn and to use their new ZIP codes.
When the ZIP Code system was first introduced to the public in 1963, the post office had a hard time convincing millions of letter writers to add the unfamiliar extra numbers to each address. I remember this cartoon character from my childhood!

*safety pins* ~ actually they are "Diaper Pins" ~ that's right, we used to use "cloth" diapers and pin them pin with these cute diaper pins that locked. I'd usually have to run them through my hair or a bar of soap so they would glide more smoothly. Disposable diapers were for car trips, vacations or the well-to-do.

Five and Dime....Woolworth's sold a little bit of everything, including hamsters and Evening in Paris perfume
Movie Theater, Movie Theatre, Baby Boomer, Movie House
Woolworth's. It was the Walmart of the 50's and 60's. Went shopping with my mom and aunt every Sat. and had lunch at the "counter".
Woolworth's Went here after working at the movie theatre selling popcorn. I'd go to buy a sub marine sandwich.
The F.W. Woolworth Co. was the first five-and-dime stores, . Woolworth, as the stores popularly became known, was one of the first American retailers to put merchandise out for the shopping public to handle and select without the assistance of a sales clerk. Earlier retailers had kept all merchandise behind a counter, and customers presented the clerk with a list of items they wished to buy.
The F.W. Woolworth Co. was the first five-and-dime stores, which sold discounted general merchandise at fixed prices, usually five or ten cents, undercutting the clerk. Earlier retailers had kept all merchandise behind a counter, and customers presented the clerk with a list of items.

Woolworth ~ five & dime store. My mother took me to Portland several times and she would treat me to something at the lunch counter there. Looked forward to those trips with her. We rode the Greyhound bus from Newberg and the trip was all day. Such fun for a young girl from the country getting to go to the big city with her Mom. It was an occasion when Mom dressed up with the hat, gloves, purse and shoes to match. She looked so beautiful and her brown eyes sparkled.
Woolworth's, the real dime store!

Matchbox holder--for lighting gas range before pilot lights or when pilot lights went out. Think they used wooden matches then.
Matchbox holder--for lighting gas range before pilot lights or when pilot lights went out.. We always had a match box on wall near stove so a match was always nearby. Gas stoves today are automatic and don't need to be lighted each time you use it. Nana
There was one by every stove. They were designed to be filled by sliding an open box of wooden matches into the holder then picking them out of the little scoop at the bottom. vintage matchbox holder...
