As we continue our Springtime collectibles, the next thing that springs to mind is actually a Baby Boop item. It is a Baby Boop Ceramic Mug from 1989. The mug is 3 inches tall and pictures Baby Boop blowing bubbles at Pudgy. She is dressed in a pink bonnet, flowers all around, it is so springtime! Printed and glazed on bottom “© 1989 King Features Syndicate Inc., Fleischer Studio Inc. All Rights Reserved Exclusively distributed by Presents P5412”.
In 2000, Wade introduced Betty Boop Springtime. Betty has her picnic basket, straw hat, and a bunny. As with most Wade productions, this was limited to 1000 pieces, so is somewhat difficult to find.
Hope you continue to enjoy this little springtime break. As always, if you have any questions about a collectible I cover, just post them here!
