I had a Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy doll when I was growing up. I remember how excited my mother was to give them to me, because she had very small Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, herself, when she was growing up.
But she was so convinced about how very special they were, that she didn’t really let me play with them. They sat in a curio cabinet for me to look at but not touch. Isn’t that silly? Sort of defeats the purpose of a doll, in my opinion.
Even though I couldn’t play with those particular dolls, I still really liked them. So I was very excited to hear that Aurora has a brand new Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy line. I thought it would be fun for Darah and Layah to have a doll, though I would be sure that this one wouldn’t sit behind glass!
I think this version of Raggedy Ann is really cute, and also soft and cuddly. She seems so happy and positively eager to play with children. I like her vintage feel, but remembering how my doll looked, she is also a bit updated.
Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy dolls are available in 4 different sizes and range from $10-$35 each, depending on the size. We reviewed the 16″ doll and she retails for $25. There will also be some special holiday styles coming out later in the year, so be on the lookout for those!
If you’d like to introduce your child to a beloved friend from your own past, Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy are ready to join your family!
