Raggedy Ann has been around for a long time, since the character was introduced to the public in a book in 1918 to be precise. I remember playing with the doll as a little girl. And now, I love that my daughter will get to enjoy her, as well, thanks to Aurora World.
Aurora has recently released a line of Handmade by Aurora Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy dolls in a variety of sizes along with Fancy Pals, in Raggedy Ann Butterfly or Red Ribbon styles. Together with Hasbro, they are introducing a new generation to such a classic, well-loved plush. They’re also about to release four highly anticipated holiday styles later this year. The Raggedy Ann “Chilly Chic” and “Santa’s Helper” and Raggedy Andy “Chilly Chic” and “Santa” are 16 inches and will have a SRP of $27.
Our Raggedy Ann from Aurora is a remarkably soft plush doll. It comes with all the charm I recall from my youth with features like the yarn of vibrant red hair, large bead eyes, and rosy cheeks.
The great thing about Raggedy Ann is that it’s just like I remember. Without the need for fancy parts, it’s solely about using your imagination. The first thing my daughter did with her new Raggedy Ann was to hold it up by her cheek to cheek. She then called it her baby doll and walked off with her to play.
All Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy items are great for ages 18 months and up. For more information, visit Aurora on Facebook or on YouTube. Aurora’s Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy can be purchased at retail or online at the official Aurora shop, where you can receive FREE Shipping on orders over $50 until August 31st, 2012.
