Classic Raggedy Ann and Andy are Back at Aurora Gifts {Giveaway}

Sometimes I wish that there were more toys out there like the toys I had when I was a kid.  Now that my daughter is getting a little bit older, the world of dolls has entered my life.  Walking down the doll aisle a few days ago, I couldn’t believe some of the things that these modern dolls can do.  Cry, wet, eat, talk…you name it and you can find a ‘real life’ doll that does it.

Whatever happened to using your imagination? I was thrilled when I found out that  Aurora was coming out with a brand new line of the classic favorites, Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy.  Now an entire new generation can have pretend play with Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy just like when I was a kid.

The dolls are such a high quality because they are all handmade by Aurora.  Even though my daughter is a little young for pretend play, she still loves Raggedy Ann.  She decided to put her Ann in the ‘stroller’ and take her for a ride around grandma’s house.  Unlike most ‘stuffed dolls,’ I don’t have to worry about Raggedy Ann falling apart if she gets dropped, stepped on or dragged around where ever we go.

Classic Ann and Andy come in 4 sizes 8”, 12”, 16” and 25” and range from $10-$35.  The Fancy Pals style are 7” in a purse and are $17.  There will be four more 16” styles just in time for the holidays including  Chilly Chic, Santa’s Helper in both Raggedy Andy and Ann, they will retail around $27 each. FREE Shipping on orders over $50 is going on now through August 31st, 2012.  Simply use promo code: YooHoo12
