Troll . . .and, i was just saying that i 'didn't get' the fascination with Cabbage Patch Dolls!! but i loved these! "Troll dolls, originally known as Leprocauns and also known as Dam dolls, Wishniks, Treasure Trolls, and Norfins, became one of America's biggest toy fads beginning in the autumn of 1963, and lasting throughout 1965. With their brightly colored hair and cute faces, they were featured in both Life Magazine and Time Magazine in articles which commented on the "good luck" they would bring to their owners."

I don't remember the early 60s craze but it did come back when I was in Jr. High in the early 70s. I had one or two of them.

Then they made another comeback in the early 90s and I bought at least a couple of dozen. My son inherited them until he out grew them and then my daughter. I have them back again!

I don't remember them, but in the late '60s and early '70s gonks were big in the UK. They were just a ball of fluff with eyes, but very popular.

I had around 15 of them. They had lucky horseshoes on the bottom of the feet. Some came out of gumball machines, others were gifts.

I never had one of these, although I remember how popular they were.

The Troll dolls looked like comedian Marty Allen.
