Updated: 2004-07-01 10:21

An Iraqi boy smiles while looking at a display of Saddam Hussein dolls in a Baghdad toyshop June 29, 2004. Iraqis used to dance to his tune, but in Baghdad toy shops a chubby, gun-toting Saddam Hussein doll now wiggles his hips to the 'Hippy Hippy Shake.' Toy stores around Baghdad are doing a quick trade in dancing Saddam dolls -- foot-high battery-powered puppets of the former president, kitted out in full insurgent regalia, who swing their hips to cheesy pop music at the flick of a switch.
