"He likes it! Hey, Mikey!" Quaker Oats Life Cereal campaign, written by  Edyth "Edie" Vaughn  Stevenson of Doyle Dane Bernbach. The ad campaign was one of the longest in history, running from 1972 - 1986. "Mikey" was played by John Gilchrist. The other two boys in the commercial were played by Tommy and Michael, his real-life brothers.

Found myself searching the craft store for this glue today (had no idea it's been discontinued for many years! Sad!). Why do they keep messing with stuff that's great? Nostalgic and great product all in one!

Remember this glue in elementary school? So messy.I preferred the Elmer's White Paste with the little brush in the top of the lid

Saddle shoes ! These were popular in the 50's.  And it was still in style with grade and high schoolers in the 60's. Even in to the 70's.

Saddle Oxfords with the red crepe soles. The saddles were more expensive so I usually had plain gray ones. I hated the gray, & thought I was something whenever I got saddles. I was so rough on shoes I now know why I got the gray ones most of the time.

Change holders lol

Rubber Squeeze Coin Purses- i remember taking my lunch money to school in a green one!
