Vintage Raggedy Andy Knickerbocker doll, Bicentennial 1976 limited edition. In celebration of America’s Bicentennial, Knickerbocker decided to produce limited editions of Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy. They changed the traditional costumes of Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy for that production year (1976) only. These dolls are easily recognizable in their baby blue denim with red, white and blue stripes attire.

Doll was made in Taiwan, Republic of China, Knickerbocker Toy Co., Inc. Knickerbocker raggedy dolls were produced from 1963-1982 when Applause acquired the copyright and dropped the Knickerbocker name. He measures 15 inches high x 8 inches wide (hand to hand). He is in good condition, but does have a few age and usage issues. Andy's imprinted face is slightly faded and his silk ribbon bow tie is starting to fray. There is age discloration on parts of his outfit mainly the collar and sailor hat. The hat also has some dark stain spots (see photo). Even his I Love You heart on his chest is starting to fade a little. Overall for his age, he is holding up well and has no rips or tears in his removable, button-style clothing. Andy’s red yarn hair is still vibrant and fully intact.

The original Knickerbocker label is attached to the inside of his suit in back. The side of label that says Raggedy Andy is not shown in photo. Knickerbocker did not date their dolls on the labels, but earlier Knickerbocker dolls had the wider cloth label tags and larger printed trademark than the one on this doll.

This is a well made, quality raggedy doll and would be a great asset to any vintage Raggedy collection. Knickerbocker dolls, particularly limited editions, are highly sought after items. These dolls add value to any collection, particularly if their original Knickerbocker label tags are still intact. Item ships USPS Priority mail with delivery confirmation.

Raggedy Ann and Andy Trivia: Bobbs-Merrill Company is a name that frequently appears on vintage Raggedy Ann and Andy items. In 1959, The Howard W. Sams Company purchased the Bobbs-Merrill trademark. When Sams was acquired by MacMillan Company in 1985, the Bobbs-Merrill name ceased being used on Raggedy Ann & Andy products. Occasionally, you can find a Bobbs Merrill trademark on an early MacMillan doll produced during the transition.
