Have you heard of the Annalee Mobilitee dolls? I never did until the other week, on the way home, in New Hampshire. They've been around since the 50's - at that time they were made by Annalee Thornton and her husband, they were made at their "Factory in the Woods" it's 75 years now and counting for the Annalee doll. Annalee is long gone now , the dolls are still designed in NH, but made in China. I spotted them first in an antique shop and I've been kicking myself ever since, they were $10 and there just might have been some older ones, why, why, didn't I look at them closer. And, we were close to their retail store, maybe it's a good thing we didn't get there! When we stopped for the night I spotted a Home Goods store, a duplicate of our Home Sense in Canada, it was a beautiful store and they already had a lot of Christmas things out - there were those same dolls again. They just took my eye and the price was right.
I bought this one for Carla - it's a fall elf, with the maple leaf on his shirt
This is one of a set of four, called The Wannabes, this one is The Present, there's also Poinsettia, Snowman and Christmas Tree - this was the only one that was there. I paid $9.99 for it
How cute is this? She has the year 2008 on her tag.
There was only this lone Halloween one - I have him twisted around the post - the year 2004 is on his tag.
These are great little ornaments that you could twist anywhere - the faces are very realistic, maybe even a little creepy, but still cute enough!
I have some reds, so I'm linking up to Rednesday
