Fuzzy-haired black dolls with smiley red mouths made popular in children's 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.
Hey, look at this golliwog! How cute! But wait a minute... it's black. Oh no, we can't have black dolls. That's racist! Only white dolls should be available. Then EVERYONE will be happy!
