A classic is making a comeback, do you remember Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy rag dolls? Well I sure do I grew up with Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy. I had miniature rag dolls that I just loved. I remember seeing my mother’s Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy dolls, they were so much bigger than my tiny dolls. I would pretend that my dolls were the kids of my mom’s dolls. I loved my little dolls, and unfortunately with moving they were lost somewhere in the transition to a new house when I was little.
SO with all of the computer games, and electronic toys my daughter has would she really be receptive to a rag doll? I know I loved mine, but that was so very many years ago. I was curious to find out. I told her that mommy had a doll like this when she grew up, would she like to play with Raggedy Ann? I was very surprised, she fell in love with this doll! And she has been carrying it around with her at all times since it arrived. This doll brings back so many great memories for me, and I love that I am able to share a doll that I loved as a child with my child, it is a great thing.
If you are looking for a great gift idea, I would recommend Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy, these classics are still as great today as you remember them, and now there are so many sizes and styles, they even have Fancy Pals Raggedy Ann doll that comes with a cute matching bag, they all would make great gifts.
