Raggedy Ann and Andy Archive




There are few toys as enduring as Raggedy Ann. She was released in 1918, and is still in production. One reason for this is that Raggedy Ann was inspired by a real girl and her beloved rag doll. The girl was Marcella Gruelle. Her Father, Johnny, was a cartoonist and writer. Inspired by his Daughter, he created Raggedy Ann. In addition to the doll, he wrote and illustrated books telling of her adventures. Raggedy Andy was introduced in 1920. The rest is history.
