These are authentic 1960s Scandinavian DAM troll dolls! Troll dolls were originally created in 1959 by a Danish fisherman and woodcutter named Thomas Dam, who couldn’t afford a Christmas gift for his young daughter Lila and carved the first doll from his imagination. They became a fad in the States after that. Today these things can fetch $50 a piece. These were the first to sell at this estate sale, to someone who showed up at 5am to sit in line. Toy collectors are pretty passionate!
