At the beginning of the 20th century, some dolls' faces reflected a new and very popular image of children as cheerful, energetic, and optimistic. These dolls sported full rosy cheeks, a subtle but pleasant smile, and googly eyes, oversized round eyes with a sideways glance. The Campbell Kids, designed by Grace Drayton in 1904, sported the googly look as did Rose O'Neill's impish Kewpie dolls. German doll manufacturers offered bisque-head googlys from about 1915 to 1925. French and American toy makers also produced googlys. Doll experts suggest the term "googly" represents a contraction of the German phrase "Guck Augen," which translates to "ogling eyes that move to one side."
