Help Raggedy Andy reunite with Raggedy Ann!

by Deb Baker

Remember this happy duo? These cloth dolls have been around since 1920. Button eyes, red yarn hair, the distinctive noses. I saw quite a few at the doll club convention in Detroit. I smile every time I see one.

But Raggedy Andy isn't smiling inside.

Raggedy Andy needs your help, so I'm getting the word out. It seems that Raggedy Ann was inducted into the National Hall of Fame without him! Yes, it's true. She left in 2002 and joined Jigsaw Puzzle, Tonka, Silly Putty, and others who qualified as the best of the best. But what about Andy?

Don't let him down.

I have posted a nomination for poor Raggedy Andy--who, along with Ken doll, never got any respect next to his female counterpart!

I don't know .. I don't mind leaving Ann single for a while.

Deb Baker said...

LOL! Maybe these great female dolls wouldn't appreciate our efforts. Hadn't thought of that.

What fiendish mind would try to divorce Ann and Andy.

It's...it's criminal.


Joanna Campbell Slan said...

Wait...you aren't suggesting that Raggedy Ann take up with Ken and Barbie run off with Raggedy Andy are you?

Ugh. Gross.

It was after all an arranged marriage!
