This is a Country Dammit Doll, by Crafts By Amanda. I guess these were popular back around World War II. She has instructions on her site. Here is the little poem that goes along with it


When you want to climb the wall,
And stand right up and shout.
There's a little Dammit doll
You cannot do without.

Just grasp it firmly by the legs,
And find a place to slam it.
And as you whack the stuffing out
Yell Dammit, Dammit, Dammit!

If Dammit's not a word you say
Then twist its little neck
And grumble out repeatedly
Oh Heck, Oh Heck, Oh Heck!

And once your done abusing it
Just sit it on the shelf.
But hug it first, as I'd hug you
If I were there myself.

My aunt bought me a dammit doll about 20 years ago but it's a giraffe! I had never seen one since. Interesting.

I mailed out your gift yesterday for being my 200th follower.

You've never heard of a Dammit Doll? They were a staple of my childhood! This one is darling, and perhaps one day I will have time and be crafty enough to make one for myself as well as those I love once again.

Ha! I've never seen or heard of this before. I made Michael read it, and he said "My life feels a little bit weirder now that I've read that..." It was funny.

Oh hey wow! Thanks! I didn't know you featured this, that was so nice! I sometimes get a ration of crap about this, saying it's improper, not lady like, or some have even accused me of being a bad parent. But I still love it, and I made it for a woman who really appreciated it, and that's what counted :) Thank you again!! :)
