Flaunting a pristinely elegant deep-green velour patterned shell atop a dramatic chartreuse chenille body, Skipperdee is ready to join Eloise on all of her hair-raising adventures! As a tribute to the pink splashes of color in Eloise art, we’ve dressed up Skipperdee with an equally bright pink satin ribbon. With expressive embroidered eyes, you will “love, love, love” our Skipperdee Turtle!
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.
