Polly Dolly (Or, Of Boys & Dolls)

Polly Dolly (Or, Of Boys & Dolls) | Kitsch | Scoop.it

In 1972, the Ms. Foundation for Women produced Free to Be… You and Me, an illustrated book and record album set. Initiated by Marlo Thomas, the mission of the Free to Be… You and Me project was to provide healthy messages refuting and rejecting gender stereotypes while encouraging the positive and empowering post-1960s ideas of gender equality, individuality, comfort with one’s identity, and tolerance. Using her celebrity clout, Marlo Thomas got a number of her celebrity friends to create, write, and perform the modern day lessons to children in song and story form. No doubt the hope was that the parents and other adults in children’s lives were listening — and learning — too.

“Hello, Cutie!” The Interview

“Hello, Cutie!” The Interview | Kitsch | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of reviewing a new release which explores the collectible culture of “cute”. …And maybe exploits the rise of cute in contemporary culture. But in a good way — I swear. Entitled Hello, Cutie!: Adventures in Cute Culture, the book was not only charming but so engaging that I just had to interview its author, Pamela Klaffke.

Why Collectors Say, "Hello, Cutie!"

Why Collectors Say, "Hello, Cutie!" | Kitsch | Scoop.it

"In Hello, Cutie!: Adventures in Cute Culture, Pamela Klaffke explores the cute phenomenon which many feel is exploding in our culture right now. From food, edible or inedible, to fashion, baby animals, and comics, Hello, Cutie! covers cute, vintage and contemporary. But primarily, Hello, Cutie! is a book about cute collectibles themselves and those who make and collect the cute as well."
