On This Day – Are You Now or Have You Ever Been An Ovaltiney?

03 Feb

Do you remember this?

1935 The first ‘League of Ovaltineys’ created by the manufacturer of the drink Ovaltine. It became a children’s ‘secret society’, promoting high morals and consideration towards others. At the height of its popularity, there were over five million members.



We Are The Ovaltineys
We are the Ovaltineys,
Little girls and boys;
Make your requests, we’ll not refuse you,
We are here just to amuse you.
Would you like a song or story,
Will you share our joys?
At games and sports we’re more than keen;
No merrier children could be seen,
Because we all drink Ovaltine,
We’re happy girls and boys!

The First Ever
