This button is identifying a member of an I Can Take It Club; it may be a button that was packaged with a Shirley Temple look-a-like doll. "I Can Take It Clubs" were popular during the 1930s and 40s and their membership was usually recorded on posters in doctors and dentist offices when children were well-behaved during their appointments. Temple was born April 23, 1928 and had her first acting role in 1932.
