The original doll with a heart is back!! Yes, the heart is still there…I know because I peeked!
Aurora is thrilled to work with Hasbro to bring a new generation of children into the fold of this classic and beloved brand and has released a variety of the classic soft and huggable Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy rag dolls and Fancy Pals™. These wonderful dolls, like their predecessors, are dolls that are sure to be heirloom treasures – passed along for generations.
Created by Johnny Gruelle in 1918 for his daughter, Marcella, Raggedy Ann & Raggedy Andy captured the hearts of children the world over! Aurora has captured the spirit of the heartwarming originals with ten sweetly nostalgic styles in four sizes – 8″, 12″, 16″ & 25″.
Beautifully made, with fine facial features in soft brown tones and yarn hair. Has the traditional embroidered “I Love You” heart on his chest. Larger dolls features plastic button eyes, smaller sizes have embroidered eyes. Raggedy Ann is dressed in proprietary vintage-inspired fabrics, and both Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy feature their own unique styling.Each collectable comes with a 4 sided hang tag that highlight Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy’s origin and legacy.
The 8″, 12″ 16″ and 25″ classic Raggedy Ann or Raggedy Andy rag dolls are: $10, $15, $25 and $35 respectively, the Fancy Pals style — Raggedy Ann Butterfly or Red Ribbon — are 7″ and $17 each AND four highly anticipated holiday styles join the line later this year. The Raggedy Ann “Chilly Chic” and “Santa’s Helper” and Raggedy Andy “Chilly Chic” and “Santa” are 16 inches and SRP is $27
All Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy items are great for ages 18 months and up.
Many of the toys I had saved from my childhood were destroyed in a fire when young Daniel was just a baby, so I have very little to pass down. I still have some books and pictures (scavenged from my mother’s house) but unfortunately, my toys and games are gone.
You cannot imagine how pleased I was to read that Aurora is bringing these classics back for today’s children! I’ll love sharing stories of my own Raggedly Ann with a new generation of littles!
Kid powered toys that fuel a little’s imagination are a big part of things here in the lost world. We don’t need another dolly that talks, wets or wears high fashion…we DO need babies made of child friendly materials that encourage hugs, cuddles and don’t mind if they get a little grubby!
I know that Raggedy Ann will be a treasured favorite of our little Sophie, just like she was to me!
