“All things come to those who wait” must be the wish of all collectors. Well, I didn’t need to wait long this time. Only a few days after Helen shared her card of Tiny Tot fish, I was able to buy two examples in good condition!


“Tiny Tots” were marketed only in 1954, although the buttons continued to be sold on Beauclaire, Embassy and Woolworths, and much later, Beutron cards. The details from ads below show the name ‘Tiny Tots’ and reference the Dry-cleaners and Dyers Association of N.S.W. In 1955 the reference changed to the Federal Council of Dry-cleaners of Australia. Perhaps that is why we don’t see many of these cards; they weren’t made for long?
