Each Detroit Goodfellow box is stuffed with an array of books, warm clothing, dental kits, toys and candy, but since 1924, the carefully and imaginatively dressed dolls given to little girls aged 4–9 have brought the boxes real razzle-dazzle.  For over 90 years, thousands of  devoted volunteers have creatively dressed tens of thousands of dolls for deserving young ladies.

For the first time in 2020 we are providing a new style of doll for our younger children (4, 5 and 6-year-olds).  She is 17″ tall and has a soft body.  Details can be found here.  2020dollmeasurements

We will also distribute the standard 13″ doll that we have used for many years.  These dolls will be provided to our older girls (7, 8 and 9).  Please see our general info sheet dolldetailsheet2020for13inchdollwithgeneralcriteria
