I thought they were banned but have just seen a shelf full in a local gift shop.

Are they acceptable again now or have this shop made a boob?

They're not supposed to be called Gollywogs.

Generally considered not acceptable but some people collect them as kitsch.

They were defintely labelled gollywogs. I was just surprised to see them as it's quite a popular shop (if a little posh and pricey) and I thought they were a no-no.

I think it's significant that it was a gift shop rather than a toyshop - I'd be more surprised if I saw them aimed at kids.

My personal pov is that I wouldn't give one house room.
