MORE FABULOUS VINTAGE WEBSITES, FINDS, ETC. FROM EVERYTHING CROTON

If you grew up in the late 50's or early 60's, chances are you remember these: SOAKYs by Colgate--bubble bath for kids in your favorite cartoon or seasonal character bottles. These were immensely popular and are very collectible today--CLICK ON THE PHOTO to see a 1962 ad.  You can read more about their history and see some sample prices here http://bit.ly/1f3joY1

And here are some Soakys featured in a recent auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz.com; click on the link https://www.flickr.com/photos/22283683@N07/16273568470/
