"Yankee Doodle Andy!" and his sister, "Give Me Liberty, Annie!" are getting ready to celebrate and getting ready for the parade.
You see, they and their fellow countrymen just won the revolutionary war and are now free and independent. That's cause for celebration - if anything was.
So, they're dressed in their best primitive "patriotic" outfits and are going to the parade.
"Yankee Doodle Andy!" is a 16" primitive raggedy Andy Americana doll with a muslin cloth body. His face is outline embroidered with black floss and he has satin stitched black pupils and white satin stitched whites of his eyes. His nose is embroidered in a zig-zag straight stitch with red floss and his mouth is satin stitched with red floss. His eyebrows and eyelashes are straight stitched with black floss. His cheeks are blushed and he is coffee stained throughout. His boots are black and cross laced.
He has a full head of curly, thick yarn hair that is barely controlled underneath his lined and patriotic hat.
He is wearing his favorite fringed shirt which is gathered at the neck and wrists. He is also wearing his favorite fringed and cuffed pantaloons with two front pockets that are gathered at the waist and middle of the cuffs. His vest is lined and has two front pockets and lapels.
Andy is carrying a primitive patriotic flag decorated with red wire ribbon.
"Yankee Doodle Andy!" and his sister, "Give Me Liberty, Annie!" are hoping to get front row seats at the parade, but are running a little late.
Andy couldn't find his flag and Annie couldn't find her bell. Do you think they'll make it on time?
