The huge popularity of the Harvey Girls inspired a small set of collectible items. Figurines like this one, along with Harvey Girl salt-and-pepper shakers, were popular pieces tourists could pick up at curio shops across the line. Harvey Girls who stayed with the company received pins or bracelets reflecting their years as a Harvey Girl.
