Rose Cecil O'Neill (1874 – 1944) was an American illustrator, artist, and writer who created the popular comic characters, Kewpies. After the growing popularity of O'Neill's Kewpie cartoons upon their publication in 1909, the characters were made into bisque dolls in 1912 by a German toy company, and later in composition material and celluloid. They were wildly popular and are considered to be one of the first mass-marketed toys in America.

This adorable pair of Kewpies stand 3 1/2". The figure is know as the 'Huggers' as they stand with arms around each other, displaying their blue wings, topknots and side glancing eyes. They. as many. were originally marked with a paper red heart label which is now missing. There are no cracks chips or repairs; near mint condition.
