What It Is
In 1918, author Johnny Gruelle wrote and illustrated stories about Raggedy Ann and Andy to entertain his daughter, Marcella. These heartwarming characters come to life for children and adults nearly a century later with new Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy dolls from Aurora. The 16-inch Raggedy Ann has the classic look of the original ragdoll and is made with yarn hair in the classic loop style. The soft doll has the traditional embroidered "I Love You" heart on its chest and features plastic button eyes. A 16-inch Raggedy Andy doll is also available. Each comes with a four-sided hangtag that highlights their origin and legacy. Each is sold separately.
Why It’s Fun
Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy are classic ragdoll characters that a new generation of kids can be introduced to with these new dolls. Parents and grandparents will appreciate the classic look of the dolls and the high quality. The simple and charming stories still appeal to today's children.
