Golliwog


  • Golliwog


    Fuzzy-haired black dolls with smiley red mouths made popular in childrens stories by Enid Blyton, such as Noddy. The toys were mass produced, and even golliwog biscuits were made! But alas, in recent politically correct years, golliwog numbers reduced, and were even banned in some areas because they were considered racist. Golliwog biscuits were renamed Scalliwags and the toys disappeared from toy store shelves. But the occasional golliwog can still be found in specialised teddy bear and doll shops, as well as hand knitted ones at market stalls.
