As a wee girly-girl, I loved my cloth Raggedy Ann doll very much. I liked her little pantaloons and her I-Love-You heart. I think that she had a little music box, but it must have broken early on b/c I can't for the life of me remember the tune that it played. Raggedy Ann had a very special place in my extensive doll collection - somewhere between Shirley Temple and Mandy.

My mother met a lady that sews them herself. Mom asked her to make one with almond-shaped eyes & black hair...something special for her grandaughter-to-be from China.
Thank you, Mom...and Dad for this very, very thoughtful gift. You two make such cool Grandparents!
