In the 1950’s several Australian manufacturers produced lines of children’s and babies’ buttons. Beauclaire had ‘Tiny Tots’, Woolworths had ‘Kiddietone’, Beutron had a lovely series of 6 collectable cards , and Rex C. Norris had ‘Jack and Jill’. Beutron also did babies’ buttons from their ‘Tecpearl’ range as well as from other plastics.
Thanks so much to Marian Clark (a.k.a ‘the Crazyhaberdasher’ amongst other monikers!) She has kindly shared so many photographs from her own collection of Beutrons children’s range that I’ve had to start a new page! ( see also my December 12th post).
Thanks to Marion Clark for all the above examples. I wish I had an original button carousel!!
