Celebrating 115 Years Of Cuteness!

Rose O’Neill created the Kewpie® character that appeared in her illustrated stories published by Good Housekeeping and many other leading publications from 1909-1928. Kewpie continues today to serve as “a goodwill ambassador” spreading love, laughter, and philanthropy.


O’Neill’s Kewpie comics that also appeared as a full page in Sunday newspapers across the United States dealt with the subjects of suffrage, war bonds, supporting soldiers and discrimination. Rose O’Neill, “America’s First Female Cartoonist” was Inducted into the 2019 National Women’s Hall of Fame for her work as an Artist and Women’s Activist. O’Neill, was honored in 2023 as an inductee into the Toy Industry Hall of Fame, and in 2022 she was recognized posthumously with an Eisner Award at San Diego Comic Con.

The uniquely adorable Kewpies continue to endear themselves to each new generation.
