Yes, I know it’s Thursday. Things have been kind of crazy here in Real Life; I’m heading back north for my senior year of college. So it’s been the Week Of Much Packing.
But I still have WTF-ery for you, this time of a less politically-charged kind.
(Two-faced character doll, Kley and Hahn, 1915)
Looking at this doll, I can only imagine large quantities of alcohol were involved in its conception. Sure, it’s an inspired and creative solution to the “problem” of dolls having only one facial expression. It’s also something that no-one in their right mind would ever give to a child.
Normally the doll would have a bonnet on so that only one face would be visible at a time. But kids being kids, you know that bonnet was coming off. Cue little Edith screaming bloody murder and sleeping in her parents’ bed for a month.
