Vintage Campbell's Soup Ad for Ruby Tuesday!

Campbell Kids were first used as part of an advertisement for the Campbell Soup Company in 1906. The kids were created by Grace Drayton, a popular illustrator of the day. The kids were used in magazine and newspaper ads until about 1951. They were presented again in 1966; and in 1983, they were redesigned with a slimmer, more contemporary appearance (Kovels.com).

  3. My Mom loved the Cambell's kids. She had all sorts of fun things with them on it. Whenever I see them, they make me think of her and smile. This is an appropriate choice for Ruby Tuesday as my favorite campbell's soup is tomato.

  5. I have a few of those "Campbells" ads memorabilia. I'm not sure if mine are "vintage," but they certainly look like it! I even had a collection of soup bowls with handles...but now, in searching my cabinets, I see only one left!

    When I moved, I gave away a lot of stuff!

  12. Lovely ad. During my grammer school years, I grew up eating Campbell's soup for lunch at least three times a week. My Dad had to feed us lunch and that was the simple thing for him to make. Pea soup was my favorite, with tomato, vegetable and chicken and stars running a close 2nd. Yummy!

  13. I love vintage Campbell's Soup ads. I have some vintage tins in my kitchen and keep meaning to get some Campbell's Soup ones. You just gave me an idea ...! ♥

  14. I forgot to add: Campbell's tomato soup is the only one I will have with a grilled cheese sandwich (and I splurge and get the original which is jam-packed with enough sodium to take care of my family of four's quotient for a week!). You just gave me another idea ...! ♥
