    Ready to suck until the old years

    Re: Poster

    There are (and there were) no better pacifiers [than ours]
    [I'm] ready to suck them untill I'm old
    On sale everywhere
    "резинотрест" is a company name
    "Happy new year, happy new year
    May we all have a vision now and then
    Of a world where every neighbour is a friend"

    Не было doesn't agree with the thing "there wasn't any of". So it is always neuter sig.

    Ahh, alright. That threw me off when I read it, hence the awkward translation.

    Is "pacifier" the right name for the kind of soska that is depicted on the poster? As I recall, "pacifier" is a "soska-pustyshka", that is given to a child so that she sucks on it and does not annoy everybody else.
    These look like regular soska's, that were designed put on a bottle with milk for a baby to drink out of (I don't see much of those in America these days, mostly baby bottles come with them built-in, not sure about Russia)...

    Edit: looking closer, there are both kinds in the picture.
