For our second Christmases, my sister and I got rag dolls. One was pink and white check and the other was purple and white check.
Told you pink and purple were loved.
Online research turned out they were put out by Hasbro in 1973 under the Romper Room brand and called Sweet Dreams. Their names were Annabel, Amanda and Abigail and that there was a brother named Alfie.
Of course I needed him but the prices on eBay were beyond my cheapness so he remained on the need list.
A few weeks ago the dolls came up in conversation and I looked again and found one in my price range. (Single digit vs triple digits!) I bought him and turns out he is a little brother. I fell in love instantly.
