NIMBLE NICKS: Beginning at the turn of the century and continuing up to about 1920, the Whitney Company manufactured huge numbers greeting cards, children's books, souvenir postcards, paper toys and novelties of every description for Christmas. In the process of creating and marketing this huge output of merchandise for the nation's five-and-dimes, department stores, variety shops, and other retail outlets, Whitney introduced a line of Nimble Nicks products. The Nimble Nicks were Santa's helpers. The Nimble Nicks - cute little guys who loved a good time almost as much as they loved helping Santa make toys and get ready for his once-a-year Christmas Eve trip - were American originals. On postcards and other paper goods and in storybooks, they were probably introduced about 1915 and stayed around until the early 1920s. Many Nimble Nicks souvenir postcards - at least two dozen of them - were printed, each in runs of tens to hundreds of thousands of copies. Countless other merchandise, including easel stand-ups, were also produced, as well as illustrated books.
