Rose O'Neill created the whimsical Kewpie characters she was most popular for. The cartoon was instantly famous. In 1912 a German porcelain manufacturer started making Kewpie dolls

Here's to those enduring darlings of yesteryear, this year and all the years to come, the Kewpies. They were first pictured in the Ladies' Home Journal in 1909, drawn by Rose O'Neill.

In 1910 they appeared in a 'Dotty Darling and the Kewpies' series. Each story was illustrated in verse and told of the adventures of the Darling clan and their Kewpie pals.

To quote Rose O'Neill, "Kewpie philosophy takes the unwieldliness out of wisdom, puts cheerio into charity and draws the fangs of philanthropy. I have put all of my love of humanity into this little image."
