During a period of financial distress after the failure of his bakery in Gjøl, Dam created the doll, carving it from wood. Soon, the Dam family had started up a new business and Dam earned enough to buy himself a small factory where the dolls were produced in vinyl. Dam created many different trolls as well as plastic baby dolls. Dam formed a company named Dam Things to market the dolls. Dam trolls, also known in Denmark as Gjøl trolls, are now considered collectors' items.
