Nancy Ann Story Book Dolls

Hello Everyone!
I wanted
to share
with all
of
you
my collection
of
Nancy Ann
Story book dolls!I have had these dolls since i was a very young girl.
As you can see i took very good care of them.
Their hair is made from mohair.
These dolls were a gift to me from a friend of the family.
A very close friend of my families had an adult daughter who
was married with no children of her own. The daughter's mom
was well aware of my love for dolls and also knew
that i took very good care of my things.
With this in mind the woman's daughter happily
passed them on to me.
Many years later i still have them
and they are in perfect condition.





This one has always been my favourite.
She reminds me of Scarlet from Gone with the Wind
one of my favourite movies.

Unfortunately i have to put the girls away...
my son
has this
fear of dolls!

  1. Strangely, I have never heard of these dolls. I loved dolls when I was a young girl and yours are in much better shape than mine! How did you get started on your collection? Thanks for your kind comment on my blog today...someday maybe we will have tea & crumpets together in person! Angie xo

  2. My cousin also had several of these. I had 2 of them that were given to me by my Aunt (my cousin's Mom). I still have the one..she has a sweet little peach dress..and I'm not sure which "character" (if any) she was supposed to be. Yours are precious and in excellent shape. What a fond memory you have attached to them.

    Were you serious about your son that dolls freak him out? My son was that way with clowns...I think he still is although he would never admit it now~;>) Diana
