This year marks the Centennial Anniversary of Raggedy Ann, the iconic rag doll beloved by generations. Aurora World is celebrating this eventful occasion by launching new, Special Edition Stars and Stripes Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy dolls. The handmade, 16” dolls feature all-American apparel: white stars against a dark blue background, combined with red. The 100th Anniversary is embroidered on Raggedy Ann’s apron and Raggedy Andy’s cap. Known for hair made of red yarn and a triangle nose, Raggedy Ann was created in 1915 as a doll and introduced to the public in the 1918 Raggedy Ann Stories, the first in a series of children’s books featuring the character by American writer Johnny Gruelle. When a doll was marketed with the book, the concept had great success. In 1920 a sequel, Raggedy Andy Stories, introduced the character of her brother, Raggedy Andy, dressed in a sailor suit and hat.
