A Brief History of Madame Alexander Dolls.
With a successful history of high-quality hand-crafted dolls that spans over 80 years, Madame Alexander has become a household name in doll collecting. Founder Madame Beatrice Alexander Behrman grew up surrounded by dolls. She lived above her fathers doll hospital, the first ever in the U.And started making her own cloth dolls during World War I to help his business. These cloth dolls are rare and highly collectible today. Some of Madame Alexanders first creations were dolls representing popular characters, such as Alice in Wonderland, Little Women, and the Three Little Pigs. During World War II, she developed doll representations of the armed forces to boost morale, and by the late 1940's, she switched to using hard plastic for her dolls because it was harder to break. In 1953, she released the Alexander-kins, eight-inch dolls made of plastic. Alexander-kins may be the most well-known Madame Alexander dolls today. Madame Alexander also produced popular fashion dolls, First Lady dolls, international dolls, and baby dolls.
