Hello Mr Gollywog

He's a face that you will hardly come across in toy shops these days. Popularised by Enid Blyton stories, Mr Gollywog was popular years back in the 60's and 70's especially in England but today, this toy is deemed derogatary to the blacks. Couldn't resist snapping his picture as he beckons me to buy him in a vintage shop. I love his outfit. Black and white will never go out of style.
