Caveman Trolls

Perhaps because of the concurrent popularity of the Flintstones cartoon, many trolls appeared in the 1960s dressed as cavemen. 
Here are a few from my collection.


These 3 inch Uneeda Wishniks model the two most commonly seen caveman fashions: 
the furry loincloth and the animal print wrap.

Here's a very unusual large troll, measuring 8 inches tall
and wearing his original outfit. Made by the 
Bijou Toy Company in 1963,
his name is molded into his foot: "Neanderthal Man."
He's really unique: no other trolls look quite like him!
