on a different note, i have found a "creeping" or "crawling" baby die-cut premium circa 1897-1906 from schilling baking soda and other schilling's best products. i can seem to find much info about these premiums, and they dont seem to be listed anywhere online. does anyone know anything about these? a bit larger, closer to 4"x6" in some cases, and two-piece, so the card can stand. there seems to be a few others in this line as well, not just babies. just lookin to find more info about them, or maybe a checklist of sorts. anyone?

thanks for the info ron, yes they doseem to be hard to find. i have found pictures of a few stand-up dolls from the same (or similar) promotion as well. at least 4 different ones, all with 'standing' ability and all have the schilling name etc front and back. any info about these?

an 1897 newspaper ad claims to send all participants of a contest a "new" set of crawling babies, these bieng different than those from the previous contest. any idea if there were others made, perhaps ones that didnt stand/crawl?

It states on the back that there are 16 in the set.
I only have one. They are a Shillings private design.
And seem to be mostly west coast. I usually see them in the $20+ range.
I am willing to pay that when I am near finishing a set, but hate to start at that level.
I like Dolls & have 500 or so. I think that they are way more difficult to find sound then other cards. Because as intended, they were played with & ruined by children.

...the babies, the umbrella, missing the umbrella part of course. saw the hands on floor baby on a collectibles site for $65, too rich for me. have seen a few of the other dolls on ebay at $35, also too much for my taste, at this point at least. def gonna be tough to complete cheaply, lol.
