An important new series from R. John Wright Dolls premiered in 2004: THE RAGGEDY ANN COLLECTION. This exciting series was based faithfully on the immortal artwork of Raggedy Ann's creator, Johnny Gruelle in his enormously popular series of Raggedy Ann books which began publication in 1918 with Raggedy Ann Stories.
The large-size R. John Wright Raggedy Andy doll- shown in the photo above - measures approximately 17" tall and is constructed entirely of custom-made all-wool felt with delicate coloration, leather covered button eyes, and wool yarn hair. A rotating joint at the neck, floppy arms, and inset gusset joints at the hips, and knees make for expressive poseability.
Raggedy Andy's removable clothing includes custom-dyed felt trousers with painted wooden buttons, plaid shirt made of felt applique, pieced felt striped stockings, a felt and cotton hat, and a black taffeta bow. True in every respect to the original Johnny Gruelle images, this is the most authentic Raggedy Andy ever produced!
Raggedy Andy was produced in a worldwide limited edition of 1000 pieces. He came enclosed in a custom hand-cut presentation box with Gruelle artwork on the lid, a descriptive booklet, a numbered certificate of authenticity, and the forms for owner registration.
