b'85 Years of Memories, Stories & Traditions!Dear Collectors, Friends and Fans,Annalee is celebrating 85 years! In 1934, Annalee Thorndike sold her first creations and founded the company Annalee Dolls in New Hampshire. Today, Annalee Dolls designs and sells whimsical and festive collections for every major holiday and receives photos from proud collectors around the world. Its really a magical once-upon-a-time story of a doll-making cottage industry that made it big. Annalee Dolls has come along way since their chicken coop beginnings in Meredith, but as Mr. Thorndike once said, There is a high energy in this company. This tremendous creative energy generates informality and a sense of humor which is incredible, and this bounces off, even to our customers. With Annalee, you get a sense that there are no customersonly friends! That important value is still ingrained in the culture of Annalee today. Thank you for your continued support over the years. We wouldnt be here without you!Sincerely, Your Friends at Annalee DollsThe team that is carrying on Annalees legacy!2 Annalee - The Magic is in the Smile!'
