Froggy The Gremlin’s Christmas, 1940s.

Wednesday, December 24th, 2008

Two toddlers near the Christmas tree. Those bug-eyes and wide-open mouth on the floor, near the boy in the walker? That is Froggy the Gremlin,a children’s program character during the days of radio on NBC, and briefly moving to television in the 50s. The toy was produced by Rempel starting in 1948, which dates this photo to the late 1940s.
