Badge Friday: Matey Bubble Bath
Clean Fun, Clean Kids, Clean Bath
The slogan Matey regularly used in their adverts was Clean Fun, Clean Kids, Clean Bath, and it was! - Ah! Simpler times!
This Matey Badge is one of my originals and I'm sure dates from the mid 70s and came with a bottle of the bubbly stuff, taped inside the skittle shaped bottle cap. In fact I'm sure I played with the bottle for ages afterwards too - you had to be creative with whatever you could lay your hands on back then!
There were several variations of the Matey badge - I recall my sister having one with a different boat and I recently uncovered another in my wife's childhood badge collection!
There's some brief history about Matey Bubble bath at the official website!
