Googly Dolls

Did you know that Googly Dolls are dolls with big heads and wide eyes?

Dolls creators make dolls with the emotions of people, and we see dolls sad or cheerful, serious or indifferent, arrogant, or cute.
So the emotions of surprise on dolls’ faces are very similar to human ones.
I would like to show you Mischievous dolls.

<img src="googly doll " alt=" googly dolls dress" />The term Googly is thought to have originated from the German words “Guck Augen” which translates to “ogling eyes that move to one side”.  Googly-eyed dolls (also called ‘Googlies’) are a brand of dolls that share similar characteristics – most noticeably being their small statue and large head with wide, googly side-glancing eyes. The smile is generally small and mischievous. The first Googly-eyes dolls were produced in 1912, and all of them were biscuits. Most of Googly dolls were made in 1915-1925.<img src="googly doll " alt="vintage googly dolls" />

Googlie Eye, Googly Eye, Googly Eyed, or Googly Eyes are all doll terms used to describe what the side glancing and sometimes side rolling eyes of these charming dolls are called. The dolls can be found in antique cloth, mask face, bisque or composition heads, painted or sleep eyes, and are even made in hard plastic or vinyl materials.


More recent dolls are made of more common doll makings materials such as celluloid and composition. Modern Anime dolls are considered to be influenced by the Googly-eyed dolls and share many characteristics. Not only Anime but also Blight dolls seem to have become followers of these dolls.<img src="googly doll " alt="vintage googly dolls" />

Many companies have produced Googly-eyed dolls over the years. The original classic design dolls are generally credited to German toy manufacturers; included in these are Armand Marseille, Kammer and Reinhardt, Kestner, and Heubach.

French and American toy companies have also produced the Googly dolls. Known copies of Googlies, such as Campbell Kids, were made by American Character and Horsman. One of the more famous Google-eyed dolls is the Kewpies – considered to be the first Googlies these were produced by Ohrdruf and based on illustrations by Rose-O’Neil of the Ladies’ Home Journal.

Rose’s philosophy was simple – “Do good things with humor. The world needs a laugh or at least a smile”.

The book “History and Art of Googlies” by Anita Ladensak is popular among doll lovers with surprised eyes. She created a beautiful book with almost 324 colorful photos. The book contains a lot of images from leading European masters of dolls with google eyes: Kestner, Gebruder and Ernst Heubach, Armand Marseille, Max Handwerk, Kammer & Reinhardt, Hertel & Schwab, Hermann Steiner, Goebel, all-bisque and many others.<img src="googly doll " alt="vintage googly dolls" />

Expensive specimens are not available for ordinary doll lovers. But, who wants to find a more affordable option to start their collection can start with replicas of such dolls.

On my favorite English site, I came across a cute replica of such a doll. The price was very affordable and I could not resist. It is so cute that I believe the words of Rose. She makes me smile and cheer up. Here she is my beautiful girl.

As my clients say, the most popular and favorite color of doll dresses is gently cream. It tones the doll’s face and makes it a miniature Lady from a past era.

 What do lovers of little dolls like best? It’s the ability to dress them in different dresses, that is, to have a wide choice.

Without a doubt, white is the color of celebration and youth. Even the oldest porcelain doll in a white dress will be beautiful and you will forget about her age.

And I also want to remember a beautiful time in the 50s and 60s. The fashion of that time will suit such tiny dolls. Bright colors and fluffy skirts are surprisingly good for porcelain miniature dolls.

I will share with you a link to an amazing site from the UK. It was a discovery for me in miniature art. At the beginning of my journey, I only bought knitting needles there and did not pay attention to the other range. I was surprised by the number of miniature porcelain dolls presented on this site. There was no limit to the delight when I received the parcel with such beautiful dolls. I recommend everyone to visit the site and choose the best miniature dolls for yourself.
