Raggedy Ann & Andy (Handmade by Aurora) Review & Giveaway

I’m really excited about this week’s review and giveaway.  As a kid one of my favorite dolls was a Raggedy Ann, so I was thrilled to see that Aurora’s latest toy line is a Raggedy Ann & Andy collection!

Aurora’s soft and huggable dolls are heirloom treasures to be passed along for generations.  Raggedy Ann & Raggedy Andy were created by Johnny Gruelle in 1918 for his daughter, Marcella.  Aurora has captured the spirit of the heartwarming originals with ten sweetly nostalgic styles in four sizes – 8″, 12″, 16″ & 25″.

Beautifully made, with fine facial features in soft brown tones and yarn hair. Has the traditional embroidered “I Love You” heart on his chest.  Larger dolls features plastic button eyes, smaller sizes have embroidered eyes.  Raggedy Ann is dressed in proprietary vintage-inspired fabrics, and both Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy feature their own unique styling. Each collectable comes with a 4 sided hang tag that highlight Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy’s origin and legacy.

Aren’t these the cutest?  I just love that unmistakable Raggedy Ann face!  And their clothes are so perfectly designed with some great fabrics designs.  And one of my favorite things about this line, is that the dolls actually look like the classic Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls!  And yet Aurora also found a cute way to put a new spin on this doll with their adorable Fancy Pals.

I received Aurora’s Raggedy Andy in the 16 inch size.  He is beautifully well made with the classic blue sailor suit, sailor hat, and red yarn hat.  And he has a really sweet and really detailed face with black button eyes,  a sewn nose, mouth, and eye features, and a blush on his cheeks.   He also has the classic Raggedy Anne “I love you” marking on his chest.

I love this doll!  I love the attention that was put  to into the detail, and It also love how they stayed true to the original dolls.  I think anyone who had a Raggedy Ann Doll ae as a kid will be so happy to get Aurora’s version and pass on the Raggedy Ann tradition to their kids.
