My finger puppets soon gave way to my Betsy Wetsy doll with Tiny Tears coming in a close second. I loved my baby dolls and remember playing for hours giving them bottles, drying tears and changing diapers.
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. It saw a spike in popularity in the 1950s......re pinned by Maurie Daboux..✿

Betsy Wetsy doll. Oh, my gosh! Mine came with a plastic pink bathtub and a bag of Apple Blossom bubble bath. Totally awesome!
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, they got in trouble for it. ;-) we scoured her poor cheeks clean but she was never the same.

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.
Nancy and Sluggo. This was my favorite newspaper comic strip when I was reeeeaaalll little.
People have told me that I look like Nancy from the Nancy & Sluggo comic strip.

Speedy Alka Seltzer - a cute little guy with red hair. He sang a jingle that we all knew from hearing it on TV commercials. I used to have one of these,
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.
Alka Seltzer -- "Plop-plop, fizz-fizz....... oh, what a relief it is!" --Speedy Alka Seltzer

Smelled so good! I washed all of my babies clothes in Ivory Snow...~ Really wonderful laundry soap for baby stuff!! Hard to find any more - the current version is liquid, and just doesn't smell the same!!
I remember Ivory Snow. I washed ALL my daughter's baby clothes in this even when I was a young mom 25 years ago. Sniffle.
I was allergic to this. It's supposed to be the mildest detergent for baby clothes, but it made me break out. Yes, I have always been difficult. ;)
Smelled so good! My Mom used it when it looked like this! and then I used it to wash my babies clothes in!
Vintage box of Ivory Snow. Mothers, even up to when I was a young mother, always washed their new babies clothes in Ivory Snow ONLY! :-)

Mr. ZIP; I remember the big ad campaigns to remind everyone to learn and use their new ZIP codes.

Mr. ZIP. It's Zippy. I used to open the mailbox at the end of the block and say hi to him on the way home from school.
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!
Mr. ZIP; I remember the big ad campaigns to remind everyone to learn and use their new ZIP codes. "Even if it's 'just across town'".
Mr. ZIP & the ad campaigns to remind everyone to learn and use their new ZIP codes. Back in the day, we didn't have any codes.
Mr. ZIP; I remember the big ad campaigns to remind everyone to learn and use their new ZIP codes. Didn't think they'd catch on, because there was some number system before that didn't...but, sure enough...

*safety pins* not just 1950's, I used them 1978-1987 with cloth diapers on my kids. Disposable diapers didn't come on the market until the late 70's.
*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 just coming available when I had Tracy

Five and Dime....Woolworth's sold a little bit of everything, including hamsters and Evening in Paris perfume
Movie Theater, Movie Theatre, Movie House, Baby Boomer
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".
I remember shopping here and the other "Dime" stores in Pottsville. They had two levels with oiled wood floors. Loved to see the birds for sale, lipsticks, and stamps for collectors, not to mention the lunch counter at Woolworths.
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.
Carolyn: Woolworths, aka The Dime Store. No matter how poor, you could always find something here you could afford.
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's-this place was magical to me as a child. My mother would spend .50 on me and I was thrilled. jr
