|Little girls have treasured Madame Alexander Dolls for decades|
For New Yorkers, the Madame Alexander doll hospital in Harlem was a place to bring dolls that had been “loved too much.”
By the time she was in her early twenties, Beatrice Alexander had her own successful doll company, launching new designs—including the first ever dolls with “sleepy” eyes that closed and the first officially licensed dolls that depicted beloved characters from films and books such as Little Women and Alice in Wonderland.
The future of the dolls is unknown. Apparently, Madame Alexander has already relocated, including the company store, doll hospital, and birthday parties. "We'll let you know when those are back in business — expected in 2013," read a message on their website last month.
