Vintage Children’s Birthday Cards

I love finding old cards, especially when they are still in their original box. I found this adorable box on a table at a garage sale and was pleasantly surprised when I opened it. It was nearly full of old cards. The others, long gone, had been handed out years ago as birthday greetings. The ones that are still in the box are just too darn cute not to share!

Can you see the Good Housekeeping seal of approval on the lid of the box?

Inside is a color and cutout lion. What kid wouldn’t love this?

Continuing with the circus birthday theme is this clown card with another surprise inside.

This last one is by far my favorite in the box. Oh I would have loved this one as a little girl!

The cutest little cutout house!

Each card is marked “Made in USA” and made by “A Sunshine Card” company. Printed on the side of the box is a $1.00 price. Can you imagine a box of twenty-one assorted children’s birthday cards with games and cutouts inside for $1.00 in stores today? I’m very excited to use the cards I have doubles of.
