Out of the hundreds of items that were produced in the American pattern, there are just a handful of pieces that were made specifically for toddlers. The Baby Tumbler is one of those few and special treasures. It was introduced in 1957; however, it was only produced for a couple of years. Due to its short life, the Baby Tumbler is more rare than most other American pieces.
The Baby Tumbler is approximately 3″ in height. With a flared and wide rim at the top, and a small cubed-design engulfing the other two-thirds of the tumbler, it is really quite exquisite. While the tumbler was initially designed for a toddler or young child, it could easily be used today by the young and old alike. It would look stunning on a drink station or vintage bar, and would easily work with your other shot glasses or barware.
When the Baby Tumbler made its debut in 1957, it was marketed as part of a Toddler Set. The set was gift packaged, ensuring a beautiful gift presentation. The Toddler Set also included a Baby Bowl, and would certainly have made for a unique and refined baby shower gift.
Years later Fostoria produced another set designed for children – the Youth Gift Set. This latter set consisted of three items – a Bowl, a Handled Mug (Tom & Jerry), and a 6″ Plate.
