The original Kewpies were born in the imagination of artist Rose O’Neill in the early 1900s. They came to her in a dream. Rose called the tiny fairies Kewpies because it was short for Cupid. She reasoned that “cupid gets you into trouble and the Kewpies get you out”. The purpose of these tiny elves is to do good deeds in a funny way.
I’ve given my Kewpie Bear some of the same features as Rose’s Kewpies: a plump protruding tummy, big eyes, no neck, a big head, very round features, and if you look on top of it’s head you will find a top-notch (wisps of hair that stand straight up).
