Pasta Presidents

These little white presidential figurines were premium giveaways inside marked packages of wagon wheel pasta.  They only stand about an inch-and-a-half high.

Never had the entire collection but I do recall playing with them as a kid. Used to store them all inside an orange Halloween pumpkin bucket.

My favorite statue was that of Harry S. Truman because he stood with his hands up in the air.  “Give-‘Em-Hell Harry” was also my father’s favorite no-nonsense historical figure.
