"Maggie" represents the best of the "golden age" of Madame Alexander and her dolls. Chubby chipmunk cheeks, sleep eyes, closed mouth, more than thirty dolls used this face mold over the years. The "Margaret" molds transitioned composition 1946-1947 and hard plastic 1948-1956. The newer "Maggie" molds were introduced in 1948-1954 just as hard plastic dolls were launched.
"Maggie," often dressed as a fashionable young lady of the era wearing lovely examples of children's fashion in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Role models for children's style of the time where child actors from Hollywood, some of the iconic families created for the small screen starting to appear on new and exciting TV programming, and the British royal family where Prince Charles and Princess Ann were the same ages as millions of American children. A devotee of fashion and elegant costuming translated for her dolls, Madame Alexander would have her own line of tot's and children's clothing from 1960-1964 with some pieces adapted for dolls.
