The Holly Hobbie character was started in the 1960's by writer and illustrator Denise Holly Ulinskas, who was selling artwork featuring the character.  In 1964 she married Douglas Hobbie and at the insistence of her brother in law, she started selling distinctive artwork of a cat-loving, rag dress-wearing little girl in a giant bonnet to American Greetings in Cleveland, Ohio.   The name Holly Hobbie was given by American Greetings who purchased the licensing rights (originally she was simply known as Blue Girl), and made her a household name.  By the mid 1970's, Knickerbocker Toys began releasing a Holly Hobbie rag doll, and by the time the 1980's rolled around, the Holly Hobbie line could be found on everything from tea sets, children's books, charms, lunch boxes, greeting cards and stationary (from Carlton Cards), Christmas plates, stickers, fabrics, ceramics and even board games.  As of this writing, Denise Holly is in her late 70's and lives in Conway, Massachusetts.
