Everyone remembers troll dolls from their childhood, with their array of shockingly bright and voluptuous hairstyles in every colour of the rainbow, created in the 1960s. But now an adult version of the doll has been created in the form of President Donald Trump.
Chuck Williams, a former Walt Disney sculptor set out with a new project on the online fundraiser platform Kickstarter, with an aim of crowdfunding mass production of a naked Donald trump troll doll. The doll is also gripping a mobile phone, which reports have suggested is so that he can send angry tweets and call Russia.
Although Williams launched the Kickstarter project just over a week ago, the target has already been excessively exceeded, with more than $262,000 pledged by 5,900 donors of the original $38,000 goal. Some point to the appropriateness and accuracy of the doll’s form as Trump has often been labelled as an “internet troll” due to his controversial and outspoken tweets in the past.
Williams wrote when the campaign began, “This figure is near and dear to me and thankfully it seems to have brought a smile to all sides of the political spectrum. The response has taken me a little by surprise!! I am very grateful to have made so many people happy with this sculpture.”
