For decades Annalee has helped celebrate and commemorate special memories and milestones by designing keepsake gifts. Celebrating graduations are no exception and are a long-standing tradition at Annalee. During graduation ceremonies we tend to look forward but sometimes it’s also fun to look back and share a few good stories.
Former Annalee Graduates
1966 Graduation Girl
In 1966, Annalee Thorndike was commissioned to create a special gift for a high school senior. No one would have ever expected that nearly 29 years later, this doll would be reunited with her creator. Read the story below.
Here’s one college graduate who made it into the Annalee Doll Museum Collection. At 10-inches tall, this ’67 classic grad looks the part.
Take a look at our scholarly mice from the graduating class of 1982 and 1983. Compare them to the 2016 graduate mice to see how Annalee continues to evolve while holding strong to the foundations that have made these cherished collectibles.
We are well-known for our whimsical faces and these 7-inch graduates are no exception. It looks like these expressive grads are having a playful day of celebrating.
