Raggedy Ann 
Dolls of the past

Volland Raggedy Ann

This is one of the first Raggedy Anns made.
I think this doll was made  around 1918-1919. She
has a hand painted face and is 17 inches tall.
Her hands are crude and she has fine worsted hair.
I wonder what stories she could tell?

After all the Raggedys were very popular. Their faces are oil cloth.

This is such a sweet Raggedy Ann. For her age,
she is so well kept. It looks as though she is waiting for the
sitter to come and give her tea.

This Raggedy has gotten a nice tan in the warm
winds of Wyoming. She really looks as though
she is waiting for permission to go back outside.

This Raggedy loves the song "London Bridge is falling Down".
You would think she would grow tired of it, but she hasn't.


When you go to Grandma's house, don't forget to ask if you can take a
peek in the old trunk in the attic. You may just find your old Raggedy Ann
waiting for you there.

Moon river, wider than a mile:
I'm crossin' you in style someday.
Old dream maker, you heartbreaker,
Wherever you're goin", I'm goin' your way.
Two drifters, off to see the world.
There's such a lot of world to see.
We're after the same rainbow's end,
Waitin' round the bend, My huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me.
