More About Raggedy Ann and Andy Dolls:
These huggable, loveable dolls have been delighting children (and collectors) for over 80 years! They generally have yarn hair and button or sewn eyes and sewn or embroidered features. Raggedy Ann out-sells Raggedy Andy, since the dolls are not always purchased in pairs. The dolls were created by Johnny Gruelle (b. 1880) who also authored a series of books about Raggedy Ann and Andy, starting with "Raggedy Ann's Stories" in 1918.
