We love Effanbee dolls here at
Katherine's Cottage, and we are thrilled that this iconic American
company is now in the capable hands of the Tonner Doll
Effanbee has been making dolls
for over 80 years! One of Effanbee's great success stories was the Patsy
doll designed by Bernard Lipfert and first advertised in 1928.
Patsy was a composition doll, and so popular that her family grew
to include Patsyettes, Patsy Anns, Skippys and others.
Since the 1940s, the company has
changed hands several times, and in 2002, the Tonner Doll Company
acquired Effanbee from bankruptcy and totally revitalized the company
and the line of dolls
We are pleased to offer a wide
selection of Effanbee Dolls at Katherine's Cottage, including Patsy,
Patsy Ann, Brenda Starr and many other Effanbee favorites.
