ca. 12-14 Hug Me Kiddies googly eye doll, 12" face

ca. 1912 Hug Me Kiddies googly eye doll, 12" tall, composition mask face with large, huge side glancing glass eyes, very high towards the side of face on forehead eyebrows, jointed cloth body, closed smiling mouth, doll is unmarked, distributed by Samstag & Hilder.

Googlie Eye, Googly Eye, Googly Eyed or Googly Eyes are all doll terms used to describe what the side glancing and sometimes side rolling eyes of these charming dolls are called.  The dolls can be found in antique cloth, mask face, bisque or composition heads, painted or sleep eyes and are even made in hard plastic or vinyl materials. 

 

The term Googly is thought to have originated from the German words "Guck Augen" which translates to "ogling eyes that move to one side".  See below for the many different Googly doll manufacturers from German, France, Japan and America.

 

Googly dolls are sized from a whopping 22" , but are usually under 12" to several inches high, googly dolls are very desirable and are high valued dolls.
