Buy a Pillsbury Doughboy Cookie Jar for Your Kitchen Decor
Getting your hands on Poppin' Fresh
It's funny how an advertiser can hit a home run every once in a while. The Pillsbury Doughboy entered American culture back in 1965 and has become an instantly recognized piece of Americana. Ask almost anyone who that pudgy little character is, and they'll almost certainly know. Pillsbury specializes in making tasty treats that come out of the kitchen, so turning this cute little guy into a cookie jar was a natural part of his evolution into a cultural icon. Surprisingly though, finding Pillsbury Doughboy cookie Jars isn't as easy as you might think!

Dealing with collectibles
I'm a big fan of cookie jars. You might call me a bit of a collector. I spent a lot of time buying and selling things on eBay for several years. One thing I learned is that there is a very large marketplace out there that consists of things that you can't just run out to WalMart and buy on a whim. This is true especially when you're dealing with collectibles.
Poppin' Fresh is a pretty good example of a popular collectible that can be tough to get your hands on. As far as I could tell, most of the cookie jars I found were offered on a limited basis or as premiums. Items like this end up on eBay a lot. This is no exception. You can look around a lot, but you're probably going to end up considering someone's second hand, (possibly vintage) Doughboy at some point.

Vintage Pillsbury Items
Many collectors build very impressive collections based on popular advertising. Pillsbury is certainly a large company, so it only stands to reason that, over the years, they've pumped out a lot of advertising "stuff". Vintage advertising items make wonderful collectibles. You can see changes in advertising campaigns, artwork, prices... you name it. I find it fascinating. Here are some vintage Pillsbury items that collectors might enjoy.
