Yes, we know there was only one!

A Wade figures Noah's Ark and one by ARCO

 

On the right is a porcelain Noah’s Ark with Wade figurines (circa 2002) by Red Rose Tea. It includes 7 pairs of ‘critters’ plus Noah and his wife. It’s an adorable set.

On the left is a plastic Noah’s Ark set by ARCO. In this set, all the critics can be kept inside the ark since the top comes off.

Franchised gas stations used to give out all kinds of premiums to lure in folks from their road trips to fill up with Gulf over ARCO, or Esso rather than Sinclair.

Some of those premiums were in the form of maps, but others went straight to the back seat, to keep the kids quiet. If you grew up in the 1960s and 1970s, you’ll probably remember these gas station premiums.

Remembering these premiums kind of makes me miss those road trips when we stopped for gas and got a toy or a juice glass as a premium! Ah, yes, the good old days.

Well, stop in and see what we have at Bahoukas. You know that we’ll be watchin’ for ya!
