Jimmy Fallon had Kyra Sedgwick on his show and she got to talking about how much loved those little Troll dolls. And Jimmy loved them, too! You remember them...the little yellow/fleshy skinned guys with huge frizzy wild colored hair and the funny little grin?!?

They were originally created in 1959 by a Danish fisherman and woodcutter named Thomas Dam - Hence the "Dam dolls" name. He couldn't afford a Christmas gift for his youngest daughter and so he carved the doll from his imagination. How cool is that? These dolls that we all grew up with all came from him making a toy for his daughter!
