Raggedy Ann and Andy

In 1915 American author Johnny Gruelle created the doll Raggedy Ann for his daughter Marcella and three years later the first of the Raggedy Ann stories were written. Raggedy Ann and her brother Andy have become American icons and they still remain popular with collectors today.  Aurora has released a variety of classic Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy rag dolls and Fancy Pals™ (Raggedy Ann Butterfly or Red Ribbon style) in 2012. Aurora is working 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. The handmade dolls 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.

We are giving one winner the opportunity to win their choice of Raggedy Ann or Andy from Aurora.


The winner will choose a Raggedy Ann or Andy from the Aurora Gift site.
