Kewpie were initially conceived as comic strip characters by Rose O'Neill. The cartoons, appearing as baby cupid characters, began to gain popularity after the publication of O'Neill's comic strips in 1909, and O'Neill began to illustrate and sell paper doll versions of the Kewpies. The characters were produced as bisque dolls beginning in 1912, and became extremely popular. The bisque and composition versions of Kewpie dolls are widely sought-after, especially those hand-signed by O'Neill.
