Gollies Designed by Kate Finn Australia
For the finest quality in design and construction you cannot do better than Gollies created by Kate Finn. Kate Finn designs are legendary, having been given to children and collectors since the company was established in 1978. Mothers who owned a Kate Finn Rag Doll in childhood are now giving today’s designs to their own children. .
The Kate Finn Rag Doll Experience
The rag dolls for sale at Kate Finn are heirloom products that are primarily made to be played with – so safe, soft and cuddly with their perfectly sewn dresses, petticoats and pinafores in an amazing variety of truly lovely retro, modern and traditional fabrics. Their beauty enhances the décor of any child’s nursery. These items are an ideal alternative to our soft baby toys or the more delicate porcelain collectibles.
Designed to be treasured and collected some of these beautiful items have also been designed for learning and playing. An example is Mary Anne with her dual face (one side asleep, one side awake). We all know how little ones love putting their toys to bed. Mary Anne has been designed specifically with this in mind, her clothing is removable and she has her nightgown in her shoulder bag.
First Birthday Rag Dolls are another of Kate Finn’s iconic designs. A babies First Birthday is a very special event for both family and friends, to commemorate the special day Kate Finn has a variety of rag dolls with “First Birthday”embroidered on their pinafore or apron.
The majority of designs are made in limited quantities which makes them a very unique gift and extremely collectible. Their faces are either hand stitched or have detailed embroidery. The clothing on most dolls and gollies is removable so that they can be washed. In many cases they’re kept into adulthood; many children form an emotional attachment to their rag dolls which often remains throughout their lives.
Kate Finn Products Go Animated!
Kate Finn is now creating short animated stories about “The Finnies” featuring Kate Finn Rag Dolls and Baby Toys. These short stories have been beautifully crafted to keep little ones enchanted by the gorgeous graphics and sweet characters. Episodes are available to download from Kate Finn’s YouTube Channel so you can keep little ones entertained for hours!
Caring for Your New Items
As the highest quality dolls available in Australia, their clothing is removable and washable. In the case of that occasional childhood accident, even the soft body can be carefully laundered. Use cold or lukewarm water only and dry in the shade to prevent fading. Although you are able to wash your dolls, keep in mind that regular washing will lead to fading and they will no longer look brand new. Do not tumble dry your clothing or the bodies as they may shrink and the wool hair will matt.

Our History of the Golliwog
In the late 1980s Kate Finn created her first golliwog doll designs. Over the years, countless exciting designs have been released to eager golly collectors and as play dolls for children. With children in mind Kate Finn’s cheerful golliwog dolls are soft and cuddly. They wear outfits of bright vibrant colours and patterns with amazing attention to detail. The boys sport natty jackets, bow ties or dungarees. The girls wear detailed dresses with petticoats and pantaloons to match and sometimes a pinafore is added. Their friendly faces are hand stitched, so no two are exactly the same. For a more detailed history of the origins of the Golliwog click on the following link – History of The Golliwog
