Bowls and How They Become Retro


Hi! This blog is about bowls in history. It’s a bit long, but if you really like bowls, then it’ll be worth the read. I’ve included cartoons and illustrations of some of the better-known bowls throughout time. Enjoy!

Cereal — the start of it all

The first cereal bowl was invented in the 1930s, and it was made of wood. The first plastic cereal bowls were invented in the 1950s, followed by ceramic and porcelain versions. The word “cereal” comes from Ceres, a goddess of agriculture in Roman mythology.

The first breakfast foods were simple gruels made from boiling grains with water or milk until thickened, then serving them cold or hot as porridge. These were often seasoned with salt and herbs when served warm; milk was not added until the 15th century when boiled cream was used as an ingredient to make more elaborate dishes such as custard tarts made with eggs beaten into milk before they could be baked into pastries covered with sugar crystals which tasted like today’s cookies!

The rise of the cartoon character bowl

Cartoon character bowls have become an integral part of our culture. The first bowl was created in 1810, but not used until 1827. The first bowl to be eaten was thrown at a young child who had just retrieved it from the bottom of the ocean and put it down on the ground near some other children so they could all see what it looked like up close.

The cartoon character bowl has come a long way since then, but is still a staple of modern life today.

The first League of Nations

If you’re like me, the word “league” brings to mind a few different images. There’s the long-standing sports league in North America that comprises many teams from around the continent and has been around for over 100 years. Then there’s this other term, one that I’ve heard often but never really understood—it’s called a League of Nations. The first one was founded in 1920 by the victors of World War I (with France as one of them). It was meant to be a group of countries that had agreed to cooperate in pursuit of world peace.

The idea behind this league made sense back then: we needed powerful nations like Britain, France and Russia coming together so they could work out their differences peacefully and make sure no more wars broke out like they did during WWI. But today it seems pretty silly when you think about it because these days it seems like every country on earth is talking about starting another war with each other!

All the rage in the ’80s and ’90s

The bowl was a major part of American culture in the 1980s and 1990s. That decade saw the rise of health food, which was associated with bowls. Cereal bowls were used to eat everything from Cocoa Pebbles to Cap’n Crunch. They were also used for ice cream, which was becoming popular at that time.

Science shows us how to make better bowls

Science shows us how to make better bowls.

  • The bowl is a wonderful invention that has been used for many centuries by people all over the world. Bowls come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and materials. Bowls are used for different things like eating, drinking and storing food or other items. Bowls can also be made for different purposes such as serving food at parties or designed as art pieces that can be displayed on shelves in your home. Bowls are made for different people with different interests so there are plenty of options available to suit everyone’s tastes!
  • You may have noticed that some bowls are much smaller than others while some look completely different from one another but they all serve the same purpose which is getting things into our mouths without having them fall onto the floor first!

The bowl gets a second life

Bowls are back in style. They’re being made out of all sorts of materials, and they’re being used for all sorts of things. You might even find yourself eating your food out of a bowl!

In the past, bowls were primarily used for holding food. Now the bowl has become an important part of our culture—so much so that many people use them for other things as well. Some people use bowls to hold their phones or keys; others use them as planters on their balconies; still others prefer using bowls instead of glasses at dinner parties. There are even companies that provide unique designs on their bowls, which makes it fun to try new styles every time you eat your favorite meal!

The history of bowls is a long one, but can we please bring back the cereal bowl?

Bowls are an important part of our culture. They’re a great way to start the day, and we’d like to see them make a comeback.

Bowls have been around for a long time, but there’s no reason why we can’t bring back the cereal bowl.


As you can see, bowls are a part of all of us. We eat out of them, we play sports with them, we sit in them so that our backs don’t hurt, and we even use them to create art. So the next time you put your spoon down to stir up some cereal in your bowl, remember just how much work went into making that bowl for you.
