Doll Castle News

The latest issue of Doll Castle News (Nov. & Dec. 2008) features quite a collectible: a centerfold of Raggedy Ann and Andy paper dolls, in full color, by Joni Gruelle Wannamaker, granddaughter of Johnny Gruelle, who created the Raggedy characters. (Doll Castle just acquired Rags magazine, for collectors of Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls.)

Envelope artwork by Diana E. Vining; I've inserted a small black and white image of the Gruelle paper dolls. Other articles note the 100th anniversary of the Kewpies (created in 1909 by Rose O'Neill), identifying antique dolls, collecting Alaskan dolls, Francie dolls, the laughing Jumeau, and Lady Anne dolls.
