Bobby Sox were first manufactured around 1927 and became popular in the 1940s and 1950s. Bobby socks had a thick upper part that was turned down to form a thick cuff at ankle height. They were often worn by girls as part of a school uniform and were a popular choice to wear with saddle shoes, loafers, or Oxfords.

The Ideal Novelty and Toy Company was founded in 1907 by Morris and Rose Michton after having invented the Teddy bear. Early on they made "Yellow Kid" and 200 other composition dolls made of sawdust and glue. Other famous toys made by Ideal were the Magic 8-ball and the Rubik's Cube.
