|Annalee Thorndike was
one of America's most prolific doll artists and her multitude of doll
creations have become a part of the lives of all who collect and adore
them. Annalee defined the
source of her inspiration as coming from people: how they look and the
feelings they have. She wanted each doll to possess an enchanting
character, a spirit of child-like innocence and have the ability to tell
a whole story with their expressive poses.
From its humble beginnings in the early 1940s, the Annalee Mobilitee Doll Company has become internationally known for its most unique contributions to the world of doll-making and collecting. One of the special qualities of Annalee dolls is their body language - they aren't created as fixed-position figures to be placed on a shelf and forgotten - the internal wire frame in many of the dolls allow them to be adjusted in life-like positions. The whimsical faces of Annalee felt dolls are instantly recognizable and have become a symbol of Christmas holiday warmth and merriment.
