Bubblyrat!! Apparently it's aallreet te sell them little black-faced dolls, dressed in aall the colours of the rainbow, again but ye hev te caall them 'GOLLIES'

The name originates from the large 'O' shaped mouth showing a surprised expression (as in "Oh Golly!!")

Aah hev te say that aah had one, me sister's bairns had one but my bairns never did becos they wez withdrawn to pacify the PC crowd.

They ARE popular with kids of aall ages again - My eldest (She's 20) went oot and bought one cos she's never had one. She says it's the only instance she can claim me as bein' a crap dad! Aah nivvor bought her a Golly.

Aah also knaah a VERY un-PC joke aboot one and if ye PM uz aah'll send ye it
