Handmade rag dolls
A rag doll is a children's toy. It is a cloth figure, a doll traditionally home-made from (and stuffed with) spare scraps of material. They are one of the most ancient children's toys in existence; the British Museummarker has a Roman rag doll, found in a child's grave dating from 300 BC.

Rag dolls have featured in a number of children's stories, most notably Raggedy Ann in the 1918 book by John Barton Gruelle and the Britishmarker children's television series Bagpuss and Ragdolly Anna.

Today, many rag dolls are commercially produced to simulate the features of the original home-made dolls, such as simple features, soft cloth bodies, and patchwork clothing.
