Coverage / Year1925 to 1926
Description(second to left) A cloth cut-out and sew "Mama Bear" doll from "Goldilocks and the Three Bears". She wears a striped print dress with an apron. The doll holds a bowl of Kellogg's cornflakes and is eating from the bowl. The back of the doll continues to depict the striped print of the front.
InterpretationIn 1925, the Kellogg Company offered Goldilocks and the Three Bears in exchange for four cereal box tops and 30 cents. The advertising doll began to be popular as early as 1900. These dolls symbolize the continuing growth of a mass consumer U.S. market.
