Oh my goodness, this made my heart break! It was so touching how the girl cares for the doll. This is a touching story, I think that only Raggedy Ann, and Raggedy Andy owners would understand the girls feelings.PLEASE READ???!!!! { I'm sooo glad Raggedy Ann is now in the Toy Hall of Fame, after 87 YEARS! I can't belive she didn't make it earlier 'cause of Barbie! I guess a couple thousand leeters in March did the trick to get ' Annie' in!}
