Mary Hoyer Doll Company

In the late 1930’s, American doll designer, Mary Hoyer, introduced her first doll and with it changed the course of doll manufacturing and marketing. She likewise influenced the lives of countess children over four generations and produced a collection of play dolls which remain prized today.

Mary Hoyer’s granddaughter, Mary Lynne Saunders now carries on the family tradition, creating dolls both elegant and charming. Our little dolls have been designed to help children grow and learn and let their own creativity soar. There are many dolls to choose from or Mary Lynne will custom design a doll for you. After selecting your doll, have fun collecting a wardrobe of outfits and accessories for all seasons. Ballet wear, school uniforms, equestrian gear, formal gowns, sports wear, your Mary Hoyer Doll can have it all.
