Madame Alexander Doll Lovers Share Their Stories

New Moms and Former Little Girls Remember Their First Dolls


At the 111th American International Toy Fair, held February 15-19, 2014 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, the Madame Alexander Booth held a special "Share Your Story Day" to celebrate the role their dolls have played in the lives of girls and women for almost 90 years.

During their famous "cupcake hour," at Toy Fair, The Alexander Doll Company invited women who worked at or attended their booth to share their stories of a favorite Madame Alexander Doll on video. One young mom of multiracial children appreciated that the new 18" dolls reflect a multitude of ethnicities and are stunningly beautiful. Another woman, of Irish heritage, recalled the Christmas when she received Madame Alexander's Dolls of the World, including one representing Ireland.

The Alexander Doll Company is reaching for an even broader audience with their new Isaac Mizrahi-designed clothing. Perhaps next year, fashion icons like Karlie Kloss and Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o will come to the Alexander booth to share their stories, too!

Watch these stories and feel free to post your own and share the link with TDmonthly's readers!
