Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Where did the title “Q” come from, for the Q dummies?

The child dummies, currently used in regulation, are called P dummies. The “P” came from the original wooden “Pinocchio” dummy from the 1970s. Q comes after P in the alphabet and this is why we have called the next child series “Q” dummies.
