Trolls – Reveal your true colours
by Jo Middleton
While the new film, Trolls, has only been receiving a buzz since its release date was confirmed to be 21st October, the toy Troll dolls (which the movie is based on) have been a major part of toy history for over 50 years.
Troll dolls were originally created in 1959 by Danish fisherman and woodcutter Thomas Dam when he could not afford to buy a birthday present for his young daughter and instead carved the very first Troll doll from his own imagination.
In the early 1960s, Trolls really took off as the must-have toy in America, and made comebacks as top of the toy market in both the 1970s and 1990s. In 2003, Toy Industry Association named troll dolls to its Century of Toys List, a list of the 100 most memorable and most creative toys of the 20th century.
While the toys themselves have been much loved and played with for decades, there have also been several video games about them brought out as well as the highly anticipated new film.
Whether you remember playing with them or not, they’re definitely an iconic toy that’s making a comeback once again.
The Trolls movie itself is definitely worth a watch whether you’re already a Trolls fan or not, as it features top celebs such as Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, James Corden, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand and Gwen Stefani. With such a star studded cast, it’s likely to be the must see children’s animated film of the year.
The soundtrack also features music from Justin Timberlake and Gwen Stefani themselves as well as music from Ariana Grande.
In the film, a grumpy troll survivalist named Branch (Justin Timberlake) goes along with giddy Poppy (Anna Kendrick) on a quest to save Troll Town’s population from the Bergens.
