Raggedy Ann’s 95th Birthday Review & Giveaway

by Nicole on September 21, 2010

Name of Product: Raggedy Ann’s 95th Birthday Prize Package

Where can the product be purchased: not for purchase though Raggedy Ann products are for purchase at online and physical retailers nationwide

Description of Product: “Raggedy Ann’s a universal beacon of generosity, compassion and love. On September 7, 2010, Raggedy Ann turned 95, and in honor of that important milestone, the enduring symbol of friendship now boasts a fresh—yet retro—look that makes her even more lovable than ever before. To mark her 95th Anniversary, Applause by Russ has created exclusive, vintage-inspired Raggedy Ann and Andy Anniversary dolls that harken back to the illustrations from the earliest Raggedy Ann books by Johnny Gruelle, who created Raggedy Ann for his daughter, Marcella, in 1915. The Anniversary Raggedy Ann closely resembles the character from the 1930 Raggedy Ann in the Deep, Deep Woods: rich, burnt-red hair (as opposed to the contemporary fire-engine red) tied in a bow; white-gloved hands; an outline around the eyes; and a more muted color palette. Of course, Raggedy Ann still features the beloved characteristics she’s famous for: button eyes, yarn hair, triangle nose, rosy cheeks—and most importantly, the signature embroidered “I Love You” heart.“Whether you’re an adult who fondly remembers your first Ann doll or an avid collector, this 95th Anniversary version is guaranteed to enchant,” says Joni Gruelle Wanamaker, granddaughter of Johnny Gruelle. “I know I’m partial, but I can’t think of a better baby, birthday or holiday gift!”

Review of Product: I loved Raggedy Ann (and Andy!) as a child and was excited to get this package in the mail.  Raggedy Ann makes me smile! The prize package is so nice – the clothing, book and doll are all great gifts for a girl of any age! The outfit is available in 2T or 3T only and is so adorable! I am so happy that Raggedy Ann will continue to make today’s generation of young girl’s smile!
