    No idea, but it's hilarious all the same.

    These did exist. A quick google search turns up dozens. That said, I've not seen one that looks like this.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    There were a few different versions of these. I’ve always wanted to find one

    This is known as an ANTI-AXIS home front piece. There were many types of these made, mostly from plaster and a material called chalkware. This is another example of the Hitler pin cushion, and there were also Mussolini and Tojo pin cushions made as well as many other Anti-Axis items such as ashtrays, bowling pins with the faces of the three dictators on them, tin pots and numerous other items.

    This is a very nice example

    Best regards

    I’ll second what Smitty said there are also figurines that have the face of those three with skunk bodies
