The erstwhile Raggy
Dolls are a group of toy dolls manufactured incorrectly
at Mr Grimes soft toy factory. One by one, they
find their way into the factory
reject bin. But there's absoloutely nothing wrong
with being different, and
Back-To-Front, Sad Sack, Princess, Claude, Lucy and Dotty are
soon having all sorts of jolly adventures
and fruitful encounters together.
In fact, they had 112 adventures together between 1986
and 1994. And now
Films want to re-introduce us to the first of them...

"The Raggy Dolls have perennial appeal.
It's okay to be different, we're told,
everyone can be lasting friends regardless
of their apparent shortcomings.
The dolls' bond is so strong, in the episode
"The Special Offer"
work fearlessly to prevent their separation
in a cut-price toy sale. And
that gets The Hound thinking, were
Buzz and Woody and their Toy Story
pals skulking in the very same Reject
Bin, all those years ago...?"
