The Endicott Reardon Family Museum has a very special section devoted to dolls and doll babies from this country as well as from around the world. Maryetta Dorricott, doll expert, will take us through this fascinating collection of vintage dolls that once belonged to the late founder of the Museum, Harriett Reardon Bailey, and she will reveal the hidden and intriguing stories behind them. Many of these dolls are quite rare and highly sought after as collector’s items.

Some of the dolls rest in their antique cradles and highchairs, and some are standing at attention on shelves and in cabinets made especially for them, including precious Bye-Lo Baby Dolls, circa 1925, designed to look like a three-day-old infant; Betsy Wetsy, who could drink her bottle down; a wonderful collection of vintage Mary Hoyer dolls (1925 – 1970) with custom handmade clothing and local ties to this area; Kewpie Dolls, Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, Cabbage Patch dolls, and more, right up to today’s media phenomenon featuring Barbie Dolls.

We have dolls for play, dolls for special occasions, dolls for keepsakes, dolls to have and to hold and to display—all come together in this extraordinary collection of dolls. Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of dolls and doll-making. Some of our fondest memories are closely connected to the dolls and stuffed animals that played a key role in our early lives and that we hold dear, no matter what our age.

All Special Events are free, but Reservations are required. To make reservations, please call the Museum at 609-624-0600 and leave a message clearly indicating your name, telephone number, and how many in your party, after which you will receive confirmation. Space is limited. Please note that unlike prior years, we will not be accepting reservations requests via email or text.

We look forward to seeing you on the 23rd of July at 2 p.m.!
