Nathan’s golliwog (are we allowed to say that word now??)


Playdo golly

Nathan and Georgia bought a whole heap of Playdo for Archie for Christmas and as is the way with our family, everyone had to have a go making something. Only Nathan could pick a golliwog – and are we even allowed to say that word now in this country???

What happened to the Noddy books we read, which were littered with golliwogs as well as the Brer Rabbit stories with the tar baby????

Strangely enough, the Aussies seem to have the right attitude.  When we were out there, we saw a shop dedicated to golliwogs at Hillary’s Harbour in Perth.  No  political correctness there ……
