036033_dThe mind reels. Steiff, the venerable toy company, sells a stuffed golliwog doll. (Golliwog: a 19th century storybook character based on a minstrel doll; the term is also a racial slur in the UK.)

Steiff apparently produced its first Golly in 1909, and this NEW limited edition is part of a run of only 1,909 copies, on sale for $298.00. We look forward to the venerable German company’s next products: Pol Potti and Fuzzy-wuzzy Himmler.
