Madame Alexander dolls have been beloved for almost 100 years and have emerged as a favorite doll collectible. Madame Beatrice Alexander Behrman actually founded the Madame Alexander Doll Company in 1923 at her kitchen table. As a pioneering businesswoman and exquisite doll designer, Madame Alexander shaped the doll industry with her revolutionary innovations and vibrant vision. She viewed dolls as valuable learning tools that could teach children empathy, compassion and responsibility. This passion to make high-quality dolls that could be played with and loved led her to create the premier American doll brand we still know and love today.
