Charlie Browm & Lucy Bubble Bath Fun
Remember bubble baths as children? I remember having a big tub of bubbles and then a big puff of bath powder that my mom would pat me down with. It always made baths so much fun! I still think an amazing bubble bath and powder are wonderful. But those childhood memories just made them seem like moments of fun and love!
And then there we these two. I found that with Peanut characters, people either love them or think they are little brats.
Today I have a great little pair of Vintage Avon Charlie Brown and Lucy Bubble Bath containers to show you
I found these a few years back from a charming elderly lady at her yard sale. She did not want me to pay much for them. She also wanted me to have a few other neat items, that I will show you at another time. I believe she thought we (my children that were toddlers) would make a good home for her little trinkets. That is what she called them, "Trinkets". She said she had them since they were new, and only wanted 75 cents for them. I remember wanting to give her more and she wouldn't accept it!
The Charlie Brown is missing his cap that hides the lid. It should be a baseball cap.See his catchers mitt in his left hand? His head is cracked, she told me that they were played with and that is why he is not in the best shape. Lucy is in much better shape. She has no cracks and is wearing her cute little cap.
Charlie Brown is marked 1950 on the back, along with the other Avon markings.
Lucy is also marked on the back, but her year is 1952.
The paint on both of them is in pretty good shape. Just a little bit of wear. Which I think just makes them that much more charming,
I love the look on their sweet little faces. Charlie Brown kinda has that funny grimace on his face,
and Lucy has her smart little smirk!
I assume these would be great for collectors of Avon or Peanuts both! I like them just because!
I also have this other cute little peanuts toy. He came from a toy box of "used this and that". My son pulled him out for a give away when he was a baby. I have no idea about it. My son is way passed wanting to play with it now, so it goes with the other two characters. do you think it is also Charlie Brown? Just not wearing his traditional outfit? It looks like his hands were holding something, but that was all gone when my son received this little guy.
At any rate, they all just look cute together. I love the vintage look of these and adore the red, black and white colors.
They always remind me of that sweet little Grandma, and make me smile. It is nice to know that they were loved. I adore them. I am glad the woman found us to give Charlie Brown and Lucy a new home!
Blessings to all my dear friends,
