Item details 5 out of 5 stars. (28) reviews Shipping & Policies One of Nancy Ann's main line of dolls was "storybook dolls" which were named after nursery rhymes and jingles. The dolls were marketed to little girls, but, it is obvious that they had appeal to the mothers as well! The bisque Storybook dolls were produced from 1936 to 1948. By 1943, Nancy Ann had created 125 different characters, but the number was reduced to 77 when certain costume materials became unavailable or too costly. Nancy Ann changed her characters' outfits from year to year, and often used different materials so that identifying a Storybook doll that does not have her original wrist tag and labeled box with her name can be a challenge. Also, many times dolls are found in the incorrect boxes. This one is in excellent shape and comes in box.
