three-gollies... The "Golliwogg" (later "Golliwog", "golly doll") was a character in children's books in the late 19th century and depicted as a type of rag doll. It was reproduced, both by commercial and hobby toy-makers as a children's toy called the "golliwog", and had great popularity in North America, the UK, Europe and Australia, into the 1960s. The doll has been described as "the least known of the major anti-Black caricatures in the US".
