Favourite Toy Friday

 When I was in grade school my big sister Becky Anne, who was 6 1/2 years older than me, made me these wonderful Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls.  The bodies, the clothes, everything! I had read the books and was thrilled to have the rag dolls.

They come out every Christmas to play.  Ann has lost her apron and mob cap over the years, and Andy's bow tie and sailor hat have fallen along the wayside.

Not surprising considering how much I played with them.  If you know me, you know I wasn't a doll person, but these were special and so well loved.  Thank you Becky, definitely a gift from the heart that has continued to give for over 50 years.


  1. Sweet memories! Wish I still had my original Raggedy Ann!

  2. bobbie - I'm amazed I have hung on to them this long, when so much else has fallen by the wayside - but I'm sure glad I still have them.
