Vintage Ads on Baby Products...

Came across some vintage advertisements on baby products on the Net. Wanted to share it with you guys. Sorry forgot to note down some of the origins and source of the pictures, cos I accidentally deleted the URLs already (some of them are from this link: http://pzrservices.typepad.com/vintageadvertising/).

I'm not in any way trying to criticize the maker/seller of the products, just want to share with you guys there were such things being sold long long ago... Anyway, here goes:


This ad is from 1920s... Woh-keyyyy... I actually have no idea on how putting this thumb guard can stop baby from sucking their thumbs and actually wonders whether baby's thumb growth might be impeded when they had to wear this?...


This ad was from 1930s... Kinda freaky actually as it kinda shows the baby is all trapped up in a dark room and that you should get a sun lamp for your baby... Thank God I live in a country where it is summer all year round...


This ad from 1950s claims that watching TV can make your kids smarter... woh-kay....


Woow-woow-woohhh.... starting baby on cola? How soon should I be terrified with this??!

Hi JennyMac!

Welcome to my blog! Hahaha... I am still wondering what purpose it serves.... and how can it prevent babies from sucking their thumb... :P

WOW! Those old ads are always so interesting to look at. It's crazy to think that we once considered Cola to be good for babies! And what about that thumb device. CRAZY!
