How to tell the difference between fakes and the real thing? Look for the ‘Dam’ imprint on the back of the troll, or on the bottom of its feet.
Trolls are said to have magical powers, bringing good luck to their owners. But trolls are only lucky if they are the original, classic Thomas Dam Trolls (aka Dammit dolls or Dam Things).
These little imps are mischievous creatures known to live in caves and under bridges. I write a Yooper mystery series set in the Michigan Upper Peninsula. Up there, what do you think we call people living in Lower Michigan under the Mackinac Bridge?
Yup, they’re Trolls. And proud of it.
I had Troll dolls in the sixties. My favorites were two trolls—a bride and groom. The bride troll had pink hair and wore a white wedding dress. The groom had blue hair (same length as hers!) and wore a nifty black tux.
Tell me, tell me, admit it. You had them, too. Right?
