Thanks Diane, mom's do deserve a special tribute.
Suffering through Labor Day and crying babies, I don't know how they do it.
Happy Mother's Day!!!

We all know that all of us need hugs from MOM whenever possible. After all, what better way to say :iluvu: . This little baby and his MOM obviously love each other very much. :love:

That's a wonderful picture of a mother and her child. I'm going to have to dig deep, in my bag of toys, to find something as good.

This snap together Mother Goose Cracker Jack prize was designed by John "Wally" Walworth. The wooden model was carved by Carl Halstammer in Chicago for Gold Premium International Studios of New York. Many prizes had a carved model made first to work out the design details. The size was then reduced down to make the metal mold for the plastic injection prize. Shown here are: the two carved wooden halves, a few unassembled prizes and four different colors of the assembled prize. The carver, Carl Halstammer passed away in 1974.

Although this is not Cracker Jack, It is a Mothers Day Crafton Chocolates box from the Shotwell Manufacturing Company, the pre-1926 maker of Checkers Pop Corn Confection
