Really Ugly Dolls

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I have to wonder about anyone who thinks these hideous horrors are cute.

And yet that is just what they were supposed to be. For some reason, these 'whimsical' little dolls were popular during the 1960s and 1970s. I think they were meant to be 'cheeky' and 'fun'.

Even more astonishingly, collectors of vintage kitsch today still like these odd creatures, and they are very popular on ebay and the like.

But not with me. Even I draw the line somewhere.
