The history of beanies

We all know the beanies are very popular in our life, but wether did you know the history of the beanies? If you want to know, you can read about below.

The term "beanies" is a turn of the 20th century one for the cap worn by boys. Several other terms are: beany, dink, dinky, and calot. Thet were also called skullcaps and wlder' caps. The term "beanies" must have evolved from the American slang term for head-"bean". We do not know the origins for this expression, but it was current in baseball slang. A "bean ball" was a pitch aimed at the batters head. The verb "to bean" was to strike the batter on the head with a pitched ball. The term beanies were so established by the 1950s that in the cartoon "Beany and Cecil", the boy , took his name from the propeller beanie that he wore.

Now the beanies were a destinctly American cap. I have not noted them in other countries. The beanies were similar to a scull cap, at least the crown part. "Dinky" or "Dink"was also used to signify a beanie.
