Dolly in miniature form. Dolly appeared on the scene in 1913, following the US presidential
elections of the previous year. As Woodrow Wilson won the election, Dolly’s body sported
the blue colours of the Democrats, combined with the red and white of the US flag. Up
until 1918, Dolly was issued in three further colour combinations, and then again in her
original colours in 2013. And now she is making yet another appearance in the Mini Teddy
bears series: 1,500 bears are available with gold-plated Button in Ear and the classic red
woollen ruff. Particularly in these times, Dolly can also be seen as a statement, underlining
the importance of democracy for us all.
