Buttons : Goofies


What are goofies ? or novelties ? or moderns ? or realistics ?
All different words for the same type of buttons, i.e. buttons in the shape of realistic items, such as hearts, cars, animals, etc. They are sometimes quite stunning and, therefore, popular collecting items !
Some of my own goofies; heart, turtle, fish, "E", bird, cat, horse, dog, car, leaf, hats, cars, leaf, heart.

1. Bear from KathieWeise
