A popular character, Skippy originated with the comic strip by Percy Crosby. Each week, millions of children and parents followed his antics and adventures in leading newspapers and magazines throughout the country.
 
In 1928, Effanbee secured the exclusive rights to produce a doll based on the delightful character. The following year an advertisement appeared in Playthings for “…The Famous Mischievous Skippy.” When the movie “Skippy,” starring Jackie Cooper, was introduced in 1931, the doll gained even more popularity. During World War II even the toy industry was affected, and Skippy appeared in various military uniforms in an effort to rouse support from the youngest of patriots. 
 
Raggy Doodle, shown on the front of this cover, is another WWII era doll. Dedicated to the Armed Forces of the United States of America, he was designed not only to entertain, but also “…to present war-time blackouts and general safety precautions in such a manner as to remove the more terrifying elements of these subjects from the minds of little children.” It was also hoped that this delightful doll would teach the youngest Americans to “look up to their gallant armed defenders with confidence, with pride, and with love.”
