Golliwog Doll History from gollydollies.co.uk
Golliwogs (also known as gollywogs or golly wogs) were created by Florence Kate Upton in 1895. She illustrated a book called Two Dutch Dolls and a Golliwog. The Golliwog doll was friendly and had a kind face and became a hit with children.
Golliwogs later became famous thanks to Robertsons, the UK jam maker, which used a golliwog called Golly as its emblem from 1910 onwards. Robertsons started producing collectable golly badges which are still prized today.
Golliwogs still hold a special place in our hearts today and are much loved by children. 100% quality cotton fabric.
