You are going to love the new Raggedy Ann Fancy Pals! I wasn't sure when I ordered it what I would be getting but this has really turned out to be quite cute. One little lucky girl will be thrilled to get this set. I am going to give it to our niece for her birthday in November. Can't wait to see what she says! I will try to remember to come back and give a quick update on her reaction. They live in a different town than we do, about an hour and a half away, so I am hoping we don't end up having to ship it.
It has a really cute 7" inch Raggedy Ann doll that sits in a scrunched up pocketbook that is in a cute blue bag with red flowers and a big red bow! Classic Raggey Ann style! She loves collecting little pocketbooks and I thought this one would really make her smile with the little doll inside. I chose this one over the regular sized doll because I wasn't too sure if she is still into dolls but since this had a pocketbook, I knew it would be right up her alley. The bigger dolls look really cute, too! You can get those in either the Raggedy Ann or Andy.
These are the same makers of the Aurora Crinkle Friends that I did not too long ago. Amazing that this company keeps coming up with such unique and awesome products for our children. I love that they seem to know what they will like and then make it happen. Great job! What do you think? They have my vote because the last two items that I got to review have been really awesome! The Toucan Crinkle Friend was everything we had hoped for and I believe we have another winner with the Fancy Pals!
