I have a collection of goliwogs that I love. Some of them were bought by my Dad from the OK Bazaars (when you could still buy such a thing) for 99 cents.
They are still in their original packaging. I feel a bit sad for them ( the ones in their packets), they should be liberated, but there is something historical about these guys. They could go into a museum.


  1. I remember a golliwog lurking in your Dad's old toy room. Seemed bizarre even then.

    Saw these in Malaysia, thought you'd like:

  2. Hi Mandy
    I say FREE THE GOLIWOGS!!! If you saw Toy Story II you would agree how important it is to toys that they fulfill their purpose: Children's playthings. Let them be in the museum of your mind!! Free Goli. Love Sil

  3. Love your site ... nice to see the inside of Mandy's mind... your life on the hill.... sounds like my dream life.

  4. Oh, these are lovely :)

    Thanks for your comment on Studio Violet.
