A brief History of Kewpie

Creator: Rose O’neil

Year:1909

Story behind the Kewpies is …. Rose O’neil was back home afer a divorce, and she was dreaming with fairy like babies! These babies ended up becoming her priced Kewpies!

Rose o’neil was a woman that didnt allow a divorce get the best of her, She applied her skills as a artist, writer, sculptor and transformed her dream into a business. She quickly saw the potential in marketing licensing her Kewpies.

  1. Hi, for reasons uknown when I place your feed into my feed reader, it will not function. Can you give me the RSS page just to be sure I’m using the correct one?

  2. When I was a little girl, I had a neighborhood friend who owned several Kewpies. I always wanted one like this.
