Kewpie dolls are a type of collectible figurine that originated in Japan in the early 20th century. Designed by artist Rose O’Neill, they feature an infant-like character with a distinctive style, including a round head, wide eyes, and chubby body. Initially appearing in comic strips, Kewpie dolls gained widespread popularity and were produced as toys, figurines, and various other merchandise items. They are often depicted as mischievous, playful, and innocent characters, and are collected by fans of vintage and pop culture items. Despite declining popularity in recent decades, Kewpie dolls remain a staple of Japanese culture and continue to be enjoyed by fans around the world.
