Day 78

This is a gollywog.  It is, well, rather wrong.  My MIL wanted one, so, the husband found it in a second hand shop.   I just can't get over how wrong it is on so many levels.  In the states, you wouldn't have seem something like this in nearly 40 or more years.

I'll agree that they're not very PC, but I always had them as a child and I turned out OK! :)

It's funny because one of my best friends here is Black and she insisted on buying a gollywog for her step-daughter who is white. I think she sees it as a reminder of what once was.

I have to admit, I was really shocked when I saw Nina carrying it around!
