The free-spirited and “rawther” precocious Eloise comes to life in our 18” cloth doll, dressed in her iconic ensemble including a ruffled white blouse, black pleated skirt, pink bloomers, knee-high white socks and black satin shoes!
Eloise may be a little girl, but her larger-than-life personality gets her into all sorts of trouble on the “tippy top” floor of the Plaza Hotel. Inspired by the eccentric illustrations from the classic Eloise book, our realistic doll companion is sure to bring out the unapologetic six-year-old in all of us!
The New-York Historical Society celebrates the feisty charm and audacious spirit of Eloise, who continues to be a picture book superstar more than 60 years after her debut. Eloise at the Museum, on view June 30, 2017 - October 9, 2017, reveals the creative collaboration between cabaret star Kay Thompson (1909–1998) and the young illustrator Hilary Knight (b. 1926) that brought the precocious character to life. The exhibition showcases more than 75 objects, ranging from original manuscript pages to sketchbooks, portraits, photographs, and vintage dolls.
