1999 Collector's Choice Troll


Ken Troll

 30th Anniversary- KenTroll/Original Troll

while Ken made his first Troll in 1959, and later on a few for friends, it wasn't until 1969 that the family began to
make their Trolls to sell in shops. The Troll's design has changed over the years but it seems fitting to bring back this style on the 30th anniversary and also as a tribute to it's originator. ~in loving memory of Ken Arensbak (1923-1997)

Results.... of Best idea for a new Troll ~ Contest 2011


  A House Troll

 (flat on back side - similar to the one that hangs on the studio's main door)

Congrats to the winner Al N. Marietta, GA

 who will receive the first House Troll made.

We have already been working on the prototype and have a design that we think you will like. While much smaller than the big guy on the door, it has hands and will carry something that should make it a good addition to any habitat. And with the ability to hang on wall it will have more places to fit in!

Many thanks for all the wonderful entries, we especially enjoyed reading all of the descriptions and comments.

****We also would like to announce***

This is the 15th and last year that we will hold the Best Idea for a New Troll ~ Contest :(

However it will be replaced by a new contest (to be announced) that will be held in addition to a repeat of last year's Custom Troll Contest, with the winners selected by your votes.
