What to do with a golliwog doll? Octopus Boy!!!

Octopus outfit for a golliwog doll

Ashamed and reviled by society, poor gollywog toy could not face anyone, could not bare to be in the company of people. They assumed he was ignorant and stupid and were scared he would cause trouble wherever he went. But in his heart, he was a peace loving artist who was just misunderstood. "I can't help the way I am!" he exclaimed, alone into the night, and "Don't stereotype me!". In desperation, his fairy-god mother made for him a super hero outfit that would disguise him. Finally, he could be amongst the people proud, content in the knowledge that they would not burn him at the stake like a witch, or stone him to death in a frenzied riot. He was now, and forever will be Octopus Boy!!!!! Hurrah!

  1. Oooooooo.. I think he's just being so cute as a gollywog! I've read about gollywogs since I was a little girl reading Enid Blyton's bedtime stories, but never really saw a real one!
