Soakies have been around since the 1950s. When they were first produced by Colgate-Palmolive. Since then they have appeared in stores throughout the US, carrying visages of wide range of pop-culture figures. They were popular amongst consumers and in retrospect have become very popular amongst collectors. I own just one Soaky (R2D2), but have been interested in expanding my collection. I think this Batman one, which is in amazing condition, would be a keystone of a Soaky collection. Bidding ends on September 30, so check it out soon.
According to Hake’s

Sold like this, particularly in the Northeast. Batman (and a Robin Soaky that was produced as well) sold especially well. Bottle has been emptied of soap to protect Soaky. N. Mint. Choice condition, as nice as these come. From the Craig Warren Collection.
