Scarlett, Rhett, Prissy, Mammy, Ashley, Melanie, Bonnie Blue, Mrs. O'Hara...
Years ago, I had a collection of Gone With the Wind Dolls – Scarlett O’Hara, Rhett Butler, Ashley, Melanie, and my personal favorite characters from the movie, Prissy and Mammy. I even named one of my cats after the Prissy.
However, something unfortunate happened to the dolls. As a homeschooling family, I often used the dolls with my daughters as we “acted out” our Civil War history lessons. Mammy doubled as the unspeakably brave Harriet Tubman in Oscar-worthy performances!
Dolls can only take so much grand-standing and so much love from little history buffs, so they soon joined Barbie and her friends. You haven’t really lived until you’ve seen Scarlett O’Hara in a pair of white sequined jeans.
The dolls shown here bring back some really wonderful memories – actually more of our “history lessons” than the movie!
Click through any of the dolls for more information and to find others from the movie… and enjoy your trip down Memory Lane, I certainly have!
