DID LEE/KIRBY START THIS 60s FAD?

Troll dolls were one of America's biggest fads from the autumn of 1963 through 1965.  Was this because of Ulik being a supporting character in THOR in the 60s.
    Actually Ulik the Troll was introduced in THOR #137 which didn't hit the shops until November 1966...
    This page is from THOR #173 (1970).
