  1. I had totally forgotten about these! We had these and not only were they functional; they were so “cool”.

  2. Yet another product trend that seemed to be everywhere in the early 70s. The problem with these appliques is that, depending on the surface of the tub, they would peel off quickly and leave behind a sticky mess; I think that’s one reason why they ultimately fell out of favor. As a side note, the ads featuring naked kids wouldn’t fly today!
