Hello, Cookie -

Your question echos an urban legend.

Creator of the Raggedy Ann doll, Johnny Gruelle, filed a for a US patent for the doll May28, 1915 and received US Patent D47789 for his Raggedy Ann doll on September 7, 1915.

Sadly, Gruelle's daughter, Marcella passed away as the result of an infection related to a smallpox vaccination at age 13, November 8, 1915, after the date of the patent for the doll.

See more information on the Snopes website (also called the Urban Legends Reference Pages):*****/

Best wishes.

Attach the arms and legs on Raggedy Ann, do I fill them 1st or sew them 1st

You could do it either way but sewing 1st would be my choice. Leave a little opening on the side of the arms and legs to stuff and hand sew it closed.

Is it true that prepared foods are full of unhealthy msg?

Msg (Monosodium glutamate) is the sodium salt of glutamic acid and is commonly used to enhance flavor.
Msg is often used in prepared foods to avoid the use of high amounts of salt in order to cover bad taste. Therefore, its presence in prepared foods is not what makes them unhealthy. The biggest problems with prepared foods are high levels of fats and salt rather than msg.
