Meet Maryellen

Maryellen LarkinHi everyone! It’s Brianna, and for Christmas I got Maryellen Larkin the new 1950’s doll. Here is her profile. Enjoy the post!

Name: Maryellen Larkin

Nickname: Ellie

Age: 10

Birthday: May 7th, 2005

Description: Strawberry Blonde Hair, Hazel Eyes, and White Skin.


Personality: Energetic, Leader, Fun-Loving, Spunky, Clever, and In Control.

Interests: Running, Roller Skating, Swimming, and Movie Stars like Debbie Reynolds and Rosemary Clooney

Maryellen Jukebox

Rosemary Clooney is one of the best singers of 1954!

Jukebox is from Lowe’s courtesy of Grandma.  It plays songs like “Louie, Louie” that are a little more rockin’ than Rosemary Clooney.  In fact, this jukebox could work for Melody too.  Maryellen was a BIG SURPRISE and she wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the 20% off sale AG ran.  – Jen

    I wish they sold her outfit separately, I don’t need anymore dolls, but I love that set. Even though it’s supposed to be 50’s, it has a timeless appeal. Welcome Maryellen!

      I agree the dress can work for modern and other historical dolls. I advised Brianna to keep the sweater in a Baggie when not in use so it doesn’t get snagged on velcro from other doll clothes. It’s delicate. I am reading Maryellen’s book for the second time and I just love this character!

      It’s Jen replying to you… I was surprised that Lowe’s has a lot of neat items that could work for dolls, including a TV… some are quite pricey though. The jukebox is LOUD. We are so taking it along with us when we bring our dolls to nursing homes. Tutti-fruitty, oh Rudy… AHOOOOHH!
