This page contains photos of Annalee dolls from my collection. I belonged to the company's doll society/club during the early 1990's and have several of their annual dolls. I also have several other dolls from that time period and beyond. Annalee dolls are made from felt and contain bendable wires in their limbs so they can be posed. They all have unique hand painted whimsical faces. Some of the dolls represent children or adults. Others represent animals such as mice and rabbits. Many of the dolls are seasonally themed which make for great holiday displays in your home.

Below are some photos of my Christmas themed Annalee Dolls.
In June 1993 I attended an Annalee special event at the Annalee Doll Museum and Factory in Meredith, New Hampshire. I went with my 7 month old daughter Amanda, my father, mother, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law. We had a great time. I even had a chance to meet Annalee herself. My father took some photos of me with her and Amanda. Someone who worked at the factory also took a photo of us and it appeared in the club newsletter.
I always remember how happy my father was to take those pictures on that day and to spend time with Amanda. At the time we thought he had been cured of melanoma skin cancer that had been removed on the previous year. A couple of months after we went to this event, we found out that the cancer had spread to his lymph nodes. A year later it spread to his brain. He passed away in February 1996. My mother-in-law who attended that event with us also passed away from lung cancer in January 1999. Annalee passed away in 2002.
I don't bring this all up to be sad, but instead to emphasize how important it is to remember special days and special people in your life and to always treasure your memories.
