UsedBlog Covets: Vintage Red Cross Walter Safety badges

These are brilliant! Posted on UsedVictoria, this is what the seller had to say:

“I have a collection of about six hundred new old stock (discontinued in the 1970s) Red Cross Water Safety badges or crests, many featuring the zippy former mascot, “WALTER SAFETY”. These crests would look kind of funky sewn onto random T-shirts. This could be the start of something cool… There are well over 600 crests available at $2.00 a pop.”

These would be great for an art installation or as a cute patch on a backpack or jacket. Really, I can’t think of anything Walter Safety couldn’t make cooler.

LOVE. I have two of these, my green & yellow levels, circa 1980, pinned to our corkboard. Have been thinking they’d look awesome on my jean jacket.

I remember the song from the 60’s and have been searching for the lyrics for years…….I want to know if it walter really sang “don’t drown and he will have some hair for you”
