Annette Himstedt

Annette Himstedt dolls have always had great inspiration either from children Annette Himstedt had come across or from the work of great artists of the past. The dolls that have been made available time and again have been a beauty and their demand consistent over the years. Based in Germany, Annette Himstedt dolls have enjoyed a great American audience for the last 23 years. However, with the economic meltdown, many good things have come to an end because of inability to sustain.

This is very sad news because here is one company that did influence doll trends for almost a quarter of the century but has finally been forced to bow out. It is not a great thought to live with the fact that there will be no more Annette Himstedt dolls.

They have clearly mentioned that the weakening dollar rate has forced them to correct their pricing many times but despite that sustaining, has become difficult. With dollar rate fluctuations being steep, they have had to ask for a basic price so that they could at least break even but that has not worked because the number of orders coming in just has not been high enough. They have been enduring considerable losses over the past 5 years but now the losses are all that is evident and thus the painful decision. Their sustenance became even more difficult with the introduction of new doll testing laws at the start of 2009.

One positive outcome, everything that is available out there in the market is almost a collectible, and obviously all are now retired Annette Himstedt dolls.
