Reminisce with the Raggy Dolls

A couple of weeks ago, I turned 24. As someone who is very much still young at heart (I think the correct word is immature!) it suddenly dawned on me that I am getting old! Pretty soon I’ll have to start doing those grown up things that I have been trying to avoid like settling down, saving up instead of spending all my wages on clothes and possibly even getting a mortgage!


So when thoughts like that start entering your head, what do you do? Well you start by reliving your childhood. Those good old days where the only money worries you had was whether you had enough money to buy the latest Smash Hits magazine AND have change for a Hubba Bubba. Oh I miss those days…

I think TruffleShuffle just totally epitomises how much value we hold to our childhood memories. It’s not so much what’s on the t-shirt that excites us but the memories behind that certain TV program, cartoon or film. Am I right?

When I heard that TruffleShuffle were launching a new range of Raggy Dolls t-shirts it immediately brought back memories. The first thing that entered my head was of course the theme tune! “It’s the raggy dolls, raggy dolls, dolls like you and me…”

It’s strange but I can remember that whole intro in my head despite not having watched it in YEARS.

Being in the reject bin with the Raggy Dolls seemed like more fun than being a ‘perfect’ doll. Look at all the fun they had! It showed as a young girl growing up that you didn’t have to be perfect to fit in- a brilliant social message in a brilliant cartoon.

I think like a lot of people ‘Sad Sack’ was my favourite just because I used to feel sorry for him! That sad little face and voice just used to make me want to give him a big hug. I used to also like ‘Claude’ just because he was French haha! But I don’t think there was a raggy doll I didn’t like- although ‘Dotty’ could be very annoying, a right bossy boots!

TruffleShuffle have some wicked designs for the Raggy Dolls range– for men and women which feature all the characters. There are 4 designs to choose from and like always I can’t pick just one! All the t-shirts are priced at just £20.00 so I could just buy all four…

Ladies, if you really want to be on trend this season then opt for the lilac tee as candy colours are going to be everywhere. Or wear any of the t-shirts with coloured jeans/chinos.Fellas, blue is the colour this SS12 so the blue raggy dolls t-shirt will be a perfect addition to your wardrobe.

All this reminiscing about the Raggy Dolls has made me want to stick on all the old cartoons. They don’t make em like that anymore!

So remember: “It’s not much of a life when you’re just a pretty face. Just to be whoever you are is no disgrace. Don’t be scared if you don’t fit in, look who’s in the reject bin!”

Raggy Dolls all the way!
