  • The Bobbsey Twins are the principal characters of what was, for many years, the Stratemeyer Syndicate's longest-running series of children's novels, penned under the pseudonym Laura Lee Hope. The characters were two sets of fraternal twins. Bert and Nan were the older dark haired twins and Freddie and Flossie were the younger blond haired twins.

    When two people are very much alike in their looks or behavior they are sometimes derisively compared with the Bobbsey Twins.
