And they are the original style of Kewpie dolls on a stick from the Sydney Royal Easter Show!Our Grandmother used to make them, and now we have relaunched our Grandmothers idea, giving you all the chance to reminisce about your childhood memories and walk down”Kewpie” lane. Lets take our story back to the beginning and share with you a bit of our past…. Starting with our Great Grandfather who worked hard establishing his family Toy business that opened for trade the same day as the Sydney Harbour Bridge opened in March of 1932.
From the 1920's our Great Grandmother and Grandfather had been creating our own specific type of Kewpie Doll that were sold at The Royal Easter Shows in Sydney and the other shows around Australia. Our family were the original makers and designers of the iconic Kewpie Dolls on a stick. And the skill was passed down the generations from mother to daughter to son, bringing us to where we are today.We grew up in the 1980's around my family working hard to make the most amazing Kewpie Dolls for sale at the Sydney Royal Easter Show and shows around the country. The trade was passed on through the family from my Great Grandfather and Grandmother to our Nanna, Auntie’s and Cousin’s, who would all sit around a big old wooden table glueing all types of sparkles to Kewpie Dolls from containers full of all types of glitter, gems, feathers and crowns. All while the old Singer sewing machines were pumping out all types of coloured tulle tutu skirts ready to go on a perfectly decorated Kewpie Doll ready for play.
The Original Kewpie Co Kewpie Dolls were a must have for all Mothers, Grandmothers and Granddaughters alike, everyone was so excited to have a hand made, one of a kind Original Kewpie Doll. And they are still getting excited over them today! Australians have very fond memories of visiting shows and carnivals with their families as children and coming home with a beautiful memento like an Original Kewpie Co Kewpie Doll on a Stick was a tradition for many families. And especially exciting for little girls!
