Golliwogs.

Yesterdays contribution to Have Your Say by fairydust, raised an interesting concept. Are golliwogs banned from sale here in New Zealand?
A quick duckduckgo search showed none for sale on trade me. However they do sell a pattern book so you can make your own. Also found a rug/quilt with golliwog toys on it for sale.


Broadening my search, I found this stuff story about the visiting SJW’s complaining about the shop on Waiheke selling golliwogs. Good on the shop owner for refusing to back down and continue to sell them.

An Amazon search found no golliwogs for sale. Ebay had plenty for sale, some just across the ditch.

But the best source was Allibaba. This is what I found.

I can remember having a golliwog as a kid. It wasn’t a favourite, I much preferred my teddy bear.

So no, the sale of golliwogs is not banned here or any other country. Like anything else, if you really want something then it is available somewhere.

That’s the power of the internet, and we must guard it’s freedom to the best of our abilities.

  1. Youse never learn. This topic is very racist. Youse should be ashamed of yourself. How would youse like it if an image of youse was used in a derogartory way? Those poor black people have suffered enough without youse making it worse.

    • I’m still disgusted by your incredible hypocrisy – you clearly intended your moniker “fairy” and “dust” to conjure up images of the poor gay men that your political forebears in the Nazi party ushered into the concentration camps to kill and burn.

      Haven’t gays (fairies in your mind) suffered enough persecution over the years without you making light of them going up in smoke and their ashes turning to “dust”?

      Every post you make using “Fairydust” is anti-rainbow and pathetically homophobic.

      But I guess this is just one more example of how hate is OK when the left do it!

      • There’s another sinister interpretation to be considered: the implication that all homosexuals are cocaine addicts. Disgusting little troll.

    • If you knew your Golliwogs, you would know that it was Mr Golly who gave Noddy his first job and later became one of Noddy’s best friends.

      Think about that: Mr Golly, the Proprietor of Toyland Garage, was an employer, an established respected character in Toyland. He wasn’t poor, he wasn’t treated in a derogatory manner.
      He was da boss man!

        • Oh Hell,
          Mr Golly – a class/race traitor – an Uncle Tom, eh?

          You have completely destroyed my happy childhood memories.
          I’ll go and burn Hubby’s Noddy book collection.

          (Na,…I’ll sell them all…. worth a wee fortune, now)

  2. And the anti-golliwog people imbue them with power. I would be interested in who purchases them, is it only okay to purchase them if you are non-white person? According to this entry, golliwogs have been cast as both good and bad in stories from the 20’s and seem to have suffered from revisionist thinking more recently.

  3. Gollys are beautiful toys for children to love and cuddle as are white dolls. Why does everything have to be about race hate? It would be more normal to have a variety of toys from everywhere in the world to be honest, not just the white ones we see in the toy shops.

    • But they don’t have red lips, god it is a non-sense argument, even the word wog has been captured by the left, probably the more outraged white left, who suffer from guilt, real or manufactured.

      Goodness knows where the golliwog author got the inflammatory golli from? And it is forever going to be associated with golly g now.

      Golly gee was a saying from the past.

    • My family always watched ‘The Black and White Minstrel Show’. Never thought about racism, just enjoyed the music and excellent pagentry of the programme.

      On the golliwog toy controversy, what do you reckon real bears think about yellow teddy bears? Have we had bear approbation approved by those who are concerned with golliwogs and such things? ?

      • Perhaps the issue was as there were negroes that could have fulfilled the roles, there was no need for white folk to dress up and be painted black? A matter of equal opportunity employment?

        As they wore white gloves and their faces were black, who would know the ethnicity of the Minstrels?

        Apparently as it was first filmed in black and white the faces were red as they showed up better.

        Here is a piss take version.

  4. I’ve never understood the anti-golliwog outrage.
    If a doll is something for children to include in their play, what is wrong with accepting a black doll as a companion toy?
    Isn’t the message that ‘playing with a black doll is a bad thing’ just the junior version of segregating black and white humans.
    Here’s me thought segregation was a bad thing.
    I gave up the struggle to understand woke folk as an impossible task.

    • I guess Golriz would be ill advised to get a perm then, now that at least in my mind, the two can no longer be separated, perhaps it is an age thing and remembering golly gosh and its abbreviation golly gee, it wasn’t remotely racist.

      Wanker left, and their cultural appropriation.

      • I was recently talking to a very lefty female friend who is green through and through. We both have our political differences and enjoy friendly banter concerning this.

        The Australian election was briefly discussed and it was obvious its given the greens a fright as my friend was so confident of a victory for their Aussie mates.

        I mentioned to her that whilst the greens have MPs like Golly Golriz in their ranks they will struggle.

        I was amused to see the response… a massive eye roll and a shake of the head followed by … “no comment, my lips are sealed”..

        • Well, the Greens have abandoned the environment. They are now a party of Communists seeking control over society. We actually have a lot of room for a sane, sensible environmental party.

  5. Isn’t banning golliwogs itself racist? Kids are only allowed white dolls? What is that teaching them about inclusiveness? Aren’t white dolls just as racist? Perhaps all dolls should be some completely neutral colour, maybe green?

      • It’s all about belonging to a group and ‘group think’. The group is to be protected as there is no individualism. Individuals think for themselves, and those who think for themselves are white supremacists and must be stamped out. It’s all very bizarre, but seductive for anyone who cannot think for themselves!

        • They must want to think for themselves. I think that is exactly what Hannah Tamaki will do, regardless of what they do in the polls, things will be explained to some people in terms that they can understand. Of course tribal Maori were/are groups more than an individuals.

          I personally dread the idea of being the same as anybody else, let alone anybody else. I do to be fair, like black as a colour, everybody has at least one black outfit I am sure, very easy to accessorise with. A burkah is probably taking it too far, let alone religious group think. Political group think is bad enough.

      • Do they want their golliwogs dressed in rainbow colours now, is there no end to the demands?

        • It all get’s very confusing. I’m sure I heard on TVNZ someone was calling for Maori to have a say in whether Golliwogs were appropriate. Why? Maori are not represented by Golliwogs which are African American ethnic dolls? I think they are great fun, or are we not allowed to appreciate any particular race these days? Seems everyone is ‘pecking’ at us about what is right and wrong. No wonder we all stick our heads in the sand just to shut them up.

    • This is a major problem for the Left. They take good ideas and fuck them up.

      A safety net got turned into inter generational welfare, locking people and their children into poverty.

      Protecting natural resources and NZ turned into worse environmental outcomes, increased pollution and an increased dependency on fossil fuels.

      It is like they’re a double plus ungood King Midas, turning everything they touch to shit.

  6. Wandering through Philadelphia a while back went into a history museum about the negro.
    It was an interesting insight to the background of some early negro’s and the lives they led. Some became very wealthy and that continues today. Certainly any I met didn’t seem to have the inferiority complex that consumes many Kiwi’s over their colour.
