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?<clueless>
They're not supposed to be called Gollywogs.
Generally considered not acceptable but some people collect them as kitsch.
gollies are ok imo but if you dare say on here its wrong.youll get links to all sorts of websites .
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.
