Raggedy Ann by Aurora – Review and a giveaway





Are you looking for a great play pal that will bring back some great memories. Did you know that Aurora has a new Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy line? Yes they are back! Here is a little more information  about the new line from the website:

Aurora  New  Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy line. The original doll with a heart is back! Aurora released a variety of classic Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy rag dolls in 2012 Aurora is thrilled to work with Hasbro to bring a new generation of children into the fold of this classic and beloved brand with a new line of plush dolls striking just the right balance of vintage and modern elements. Aurora is very excited to showcase these handmade pieces that feature exquisite detail including fine facial features and yarn hair with the classic loop style. These are heirloom treasures that can be passed on for generations. 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. All Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy items are great for ages 18 months and up.

My Review:

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.
