Raggedy Ann Rules

September 2010   marks the 95th birthday of an American icon who has inspired, entertained, and taught us to love, laugh, and persist for several generations. No, I’m not chatting about Betty White—though that spry golden girl has been everywhere of late, spreading her message to live life to the fullest. Instead, I’m saluting “Raggedy Ann,” the cloth creation that was awarded its patent on Sept. 7, 1915.

Raggedy Ann is one of those slices of Americana that just always seemed to be there. If you had told me that the yarn-haired miss made her debut during the Civil War, I would have believed you. She is an antique collectible that doesn’t appear to belong to any particular time period or geographic locale. If I had to describe her, I’d simply say “nostalgic.”

What’s interesting to me about Miss Ann is that her birthday, quickly coming up to 100, is happening during a time when her bold head of hair, dowdy pinafore, striped stockings and clunky shoes make her both a throwback clotheshorse and a very groovy chick. She could be the brainchild of a dollmaker plying her craft today on the Deviant Art board!

Before the literary punk Lisbeth Salander caused a stir in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” franchise, Raggedy already had a heart embroidered on her fabric chest. I don’t know about you, but to me, that equals a doll tattoo. Pretty cutting-edge for your great-grandma’s playmate.

Taken in a certain light, Raggedy is a heck of a steam-punk goddess. As a matter of fact, her primitive face, which looks a bit like a makeover a la Dr. Frankenstein, is the harbinger of “Sally,” the ethereal and macabre heroine of Tim Burton’s “Nightmare Before Christmas.”
Sally and her paramour, Jack Skellington, are the “Lucy and Desi” of the steam-punk movement. They are dapper and goth; makeshift in their appearance and mesmerizing in their allure.“Raggedy Ann and her companion/brother, Raggedy Andy, are likewise pretty sharp in their primary-colored togs and their eerily wide-eyed view of the world.

Raggedy Ann first appeared when artist Johnny Gruelle created a brand-new face for an old cloth doll that had been unearthed in the family’s attic—some experts say that Johnny stumbled upon it in his mother’s upstairs crawl space; others say his daughter, Marcella, found it while playing beside her grandma’s steamer trunks. Marcella and her father were extremely close, and the cartoonist would often regale his child with outlandish stories involving the fearless and sweet Ann. In 1915, when she was 13, Marcella Gruelle was vaccinated at school for small pox. She mysteriously passed away after this event, and her dad was devastated. Doctors said she died from heart failure; Gruelle maintained it was because of the vaccination, which he did not authorize. (Throughout his life afterward, Johnny Gruelle was a vocal opponent of childhood vaccination. This stance smacks of the modern debate that swirls around vaccinations and autism. Many anti-vaccine groups have adopted the Raggedy Ann doll as their mascot.)

The heartbroken Gruelle kept himself busy and distracted by perfecting the cloth doll and brushing up its accompanying stories. His family rallied around and persuaded him to continue his work on the patent for the Ann doll, which he did. The rest is history.

For goth guys and gals, you can’t get any more street cred than that pedigree. Who knew that Raggedy Ann began her days as a nighttime placebo for a tween who had trouble sleeping, and that she was then patented and manufactured to help a stricken father keep alive his ties to his deceased daughter? It’s pretty powerful stuff, and adds a heart-wrenching, otherworldly motif to “Marcella: A Raggedy Ann Story” and subsequent titles.

Ann was on her own as a plaything for five years. Andy didn’t come along until 1920, so the cloth girl character had adventures and magical experiences for five years by herself. Talk about being solo in the spotlight! Long before Dora ever started exploring, Raggedy Ann was fearless in her comings and goings.

I think the most interesting thing about the Raggedy Ann mystique is that she’s so often portrayed as a rag doll that just flops into place. You see her always sitting in a rocker, or languishing on a bed. In the original early stories, Ann would come alive at night and have encounters with other make-believe and inanimate creatures when “the real-for-sure people were gone or fast asleep.”

Excuse me!!! Doesn’t that sound like the plot of “Toy Story”? Our Ann is the forerunner of feminist Dora, goth chic Sally, and Pixar’s Woody, Buzz and Jessie. Miss Ann deserves a round of applause for all that.

To honor the stitched one’s milestone, several companies are releasing anniversary editions, including Madame Alexander and Russ Berrie/Applause.

If you used to think—like I once did—that this is a doll that has outlived her time, think again.
Raggedy Ann shouldn’t have to change a hair on her yarn-wigged head. The backstory that surrounds her inception, the primitive and abstract expression that defines her face, and the instantly recognizable costume (which a certain Dorothy from Kansas and a Wicked Witch of the East owe a debt to) make her place in the Toy Hall of Fame deserved and enduring.
Happy Birthday, Raggedy Ann! You’ve taught me that people who look at your simple, plain visage and can’t see beyond that are guilty of judging at face-value.

Photo Captions
Madame Alexander, a legendary toy name, salutes the lore of "Raggedy Ann.” A 95th Anniversary Wooden Doll (top) is shipping this month to tie in with the birthday of Raggedy, which is the date that her hand-drawn illustration received a patent.

Just in time for this milestone, Russ Berrie/Applause are releasing this 95th-anniversary tribute doll (second from top).

Steam-punk fanciers and goth devotees both love the artwork of Tim Burton’s “Nightmare Before Christmas.” Sally’s (circle image) stitched face, long red hair and wide eyes are reminiscent of  birthday girl Ann.

Forget about the “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”! “Raggedy Ann” is the grrrrl with the embroidered heart (second to bottom). What a trend-setter.

Created by Zosomoto artist, Jodi Cain, this eerie spin on Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy (bottom) are haunting and hysterical. The artist says there are loads of happy dolls out there, she’s trying to even the score.

Raggedy Ann makes me smile. I had one when I was a little girl, and I am happy to see she is still popular today. She is a sweet little doll. Why is the Alexander one made up of wood?

I am just starting the Millennium Trilogy. Don't tell me that's the secret of the whole series--Lisbeth is really Raggedy Ann! I didn't see that one coming. Very funny blog.

Very funny comparing such a sweet ragdoll to Lizbeth Salander. I never knew any of that about Raggedy Ann and I learned a lot from reading this. It was funny and educational. Are you a teacher? I get that feeling sometiems when I read your postings.

I have a special connection to Raggedy Ann because I would always get one for my birthday, My name is Anne and my grandma would always buy me a Raggedy Ann doll or coloring book or reading book. Whatever it was, it came from my grandma's heart. I loved getting all those dolls and all the trinkets. I never knew any of this about Raggedy Ann. Thank you for all of this information. I'll never look at her the same way again.

The Chicago Toy Show

You haven’t seen a toy show until you’ve seen this one. Six buildings! Over six hundred exhibitors! Exclusively toys and dolls and children’s playthings on display everywhere! This is the show everyone always says they intend to visit, and now is the time to do just that. Collectors say the Chicago Toy Show really is the largest in the entire world. They are correct. Collectors say they find toys at this show that are never seen anywhere else. Correct again.
