Why does this Madame Alexander Alice doll wear a red dress? Aren't most Alice dolls dressed in blue with a white apron?
Well, this Madame Alexander doll was made to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the publication of "Alice in Wonderland." The doll company has made blue-dressed Alices many times in the past.
This one, however, was chosen to wear red in honor of the 1907 "Little Folks Edition" of "Through the Looking-Glass."
Rather than blue, Alice's dress was originally shown as yellow, in the 1890 Nursery Alice edition.
