It’s Saturday morning, time to eat your cereal! How many of these vintage Post cereals do you remember?
Personally, I was most happy to recall the old Post-Tens and Treat-Paks. So much cooler sounding than today’s “assorted” or “variety” packs. I don’t even think Post makes the small boxes like that anymore… *sigh*

Back in 2008, we showed you the fabulous TV Tuffets of the 1950s. But now we can do even better.
This here is a large Mid-Century modern stuffed white bunny rabbit with a turquoise vinyl seat — because it’s a stool for kids to watch TV on!
Just imagine the joy of watching TV on an old television set with rabbit-ear antennas while holding the ears on this bunny!
This plush white rabbit is at least 15 inches long, roughly 13 inches wide, and the seat is approximately 8 inches off the ground. This stuffed tuffet of a kids chair was made by the Atlanta Novelty Manufacturing Corporation sometime between the late 1950s to mid 1960s.
And, yes, you can buy it from me. I’m downsizing my collections. (More details here.) And with all our pets this raving beauty is one of those gems that remains hidden to remain safe. But I do love it so… Better buy it quick — like a bunny — before I change my mind.
A good cowboy would sleep with one eye open, so I’m guessing the eye we can’t see is open.
It’s kinda weird how few vintage greeting cards boys are out there… I guess boys were quicker to toss them out. Via.
Just think, back in the day, your dog had to wear a starched burlap version. Poor thing. (Via.)
I have this thing now where whenever an ad tells me to do something, I turn it around and tell them to do it. For example, when the commercial announcer says, “Right now, you can get 0% financing,” I reply — yes, out loud, with “No, you get 0% financing!” Hubby swears it never gets old. Heh.
In this case, even if sounds threatening or at least a bit naughty, Piff’s is just a vintage soda pop.
Jayne Mansfield & poodle pal in Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957).
OK, so this vintage cast photo of The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin may not really have Rin Tin Tin’s stamp of approval, but it supposedly has his paw stamp.
