2016 Mystery Doll Collection

Madame Alexander Mystery Dolls Collection 2016

Known only as "The Mystery Dolls," Madame Alexander created six extraordinary dolls in 1951. Having never appeared in the Alexander catalogs, very little is known of these beautiful ladies.

How many were made?
Who were they inspired by?
We may never know.

What we do know is that Madame Alexander won a coveted
Fashion Academy Gold Medal for the originals!

“Love is in the details”

- Madame Beatrice Alexander

An Excerpt From The Madame Alexander 2016 Catalog

In 1923, Madame Alexander began to fulfill her vision of creating beautifully crafted play dolls for children.

Over 90 years later, the company she started continues to delight children, collectors and people of all ages, everywhere. Madame's mission was founded on her belief that dolls should engage the imagination and contribute to a child's happiness and understanding of the world. Great works of literature, the arts and culture were inspiration for many of her creations. Today, we extend Madame's original philosophy by creating exquisitely detailed and culturally relevant dolls that will appeal to a new generation of children... of all ages.

“What a doll does for a little girl is to develop her capacity to love others and herself.”

Madame Beatrice Alexander's thoughts represent the spirit and love that is encapsulated in each and every Madame Alexander doll.

The daughter of Russian immigrants, Beatrice Alexander was born in Brooklyn, New York on March 9, 1895. She was raised over her father's doll hospital - the first in America - and often played with the dolls waiting to be mended. Her belief in the American dream, combined with her love of dolls and their costumes, led her to start her own doll company when she was 28 years old.

Within a few years she had moved her business from the kitchen table to a downtown New York City studio, later relocating its headquarters in the Manhattanville section of Harlem. Today, the Company is still in New York City, in midtown Manhattan!
