Scootles

doll

Artist and reformer Rose O'Neill created Scootles, a charming toddler figure with side-glancing eyes, in the 1920s. German manufacturers produced the first Scootles dolls in bisque, but doll designer Joseph L. Kallus produced the first composition versions in sizes ranging from 7 1/2 inches to 20 inches. Kallus had worked on the development of O'Neill's more popular Kewpie dolls for George Borgfelt & Co. prior to his miliary service in World War I. By 1921, he founded the Cameo Doll Company which made several varieties of composition dolls including the Bye-Lo baby and Mama dolls. Strombecker Corporation purchased the doll company in 1970.
