Troll dolls, originally known as Leprechauns and also known as Dam dolls, Gonks, Wishniks, Treasure Trolls, and Norfins, became one of the United States' biggest toy fads from the autumn of 1963 through 1965. The troll doll is sometimes mistakenly referred to as a Kewpie doll. Trolls became fads again in brief periods throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, with as many as ten different manufacturers
