History

Sonny is a version of the Kewpie or QP; a character created by american artist Rose O'Neill. Kewpie 1909 began as a comic strip, and became an immensely popular doll. The inspiration for Kewpie came from the cherub or Cupid from Roman mythology. According to Rose the cherubim used to cause problems and put people in awkward situations while Kewpie instead helps people overcome their problems.
Kewpie, like Sonny is equipped with small angel wings, however, is the original version sexless while Sonny is a small boy. Sonny is named after its creator Soeya.
