Adventuring Children

Saw this pic over at Golden Age Comic Book Stories.  It's a cereal ad by N. C. Wyeth.  It's really cool.

When I saw it, I was struck by the way that the kids were having fun.

They appear to be off on an imaginary adventure.  Convert that pirate flag to a 10' pole and you've really got something.   :)

In large part, their outfits and toys seem to be handmade.  They are playing together.  The cereal actually sounds healthy.

Compare that to these more contemporary ads:

  

Just an observation.  As you were.  :)
