There is often a "childish" charm to anthropomorphic images and objects so it is not suprising that many fabulous examples can be found in items geared towards children
Anthropomorphic objects or images can range from the delightful to the disturbing.
Delightful- the images in Watty Piper's The Little Engine that Could
Disturbing- 1980s McDonald's Plastic chicken mcnuggets toys I am often drawn to vintage items that feature anthropomorphic images, many dating to the 40s and 50s. These items are kitschy, no doubt, which is precisely why I love them! There are always wonderful anthropomorphic goodies to be found on etsy, both vintage and handmade and appealing to kiddos and mommies alike.
