Johnny Gruelle kept the memory of his daughter alive through the dolls and volume after volume of Raggedy Ann stories.
I thought this short haired Sasha girl would make a great Marcella ! So here she is.
"Marcella" began as a 1982 short haired Sasha girl. I have dyed her hair to match the color of "Marcella's" in the book illustrations. Her features are repainted and her cheeks are slightly blushed. She wears a simple handmade yellow dress by lovzone7
with fun red shoes. I wanted her to be a sweet remembrance of a little girl whose own rag doll would delight generations of children.
Of course she can't go anywhere without her four companions - Raggedy Ann, Andy, Quacky Doodles and Fido the dog. Quacky Doodles is a little known character in very early Johnny Gruelle books, and Fido, Marcella's dog, is a character in the original Raggedy Ann stories.
Marcella also comes with a hard cover volume of Raggedy Ann stories that is a combination of the books "Raggedy Ann Stories" and "Raggedy Andy Stories". It is a large book that features many original color illustrations and the original text.
Marcella will come with all of the above. She is a one of a kind and can never be exactly duplicated. She is $425 plus shipping. While the books is included, it does add weight, and thus additional postage so if you happen to already have the book and don't want it, I can give you a shipping weight with and without.
