In a dream Rose O'Neill met these little babies with tiny blue wings. Tiny wisp of hair and big laughing eyes. She soon realized that they were not babies and thought that they were some kind of fairies. Watching them playing and frolicking on her bed and around her room she knew they weren't babies or fairies--they were Kewpies.
Kewpie is short for Cupid. "Cupids gets you into trouble and Kewpies get you out".
