The Story of Late Greats!

A well received handmade birthday gift for her father-in-law (a George Washington portrayer!) soon turned into Late Greats, Chen Reichert’s series of historical dolls and decor. The shape and style of the Late Greats figures are inspired by her older brothers' Tonka Hulk Hogan WWF pillow doll which she was repeatedly denied playtime with. So combining her love of history and an affinity for extra stuffed pillow pals Chen illustrates and brings to plush form the ecclectic crew of Late Greats.
