Goofies or Goofy Buttons.  Realistic or Goofies are buttons (usually plastic) shaped like everyday objects. You can find flowers, food, circus, animals and even cartoon characters! Their hey-day came in 1930s & 1940s with the advent of the cheap plastic button.  Shirley says, “I have spent many years finding sets of Goofy Buttons.  You can see them on the ‘display only cards’ in the Cabinets of Curiosities at Morpeth Antique Centre, NSW.  If you are lucky you will find a set or a card of mixed Goofies there to purchase. They are becoming more collectable, higher in price, and very hard to find”.  (see separate listing for Booklet $6 about Goofy/Novelty Buttons).
