About Marie Osmond

As a child and teenager, Marie Osmond endeared herself to an entire generation. That bond with her audience not only continued, but grew stronger through the years as Marie's career blossomed into hit records, network television shows, Broadway musicals, movies of the week, worldwide concert tours, a New York Times best-selling book, television commercials, and lecture tours.

With over 40 years of successes in the entertainment industry, Marie's legions of fans now span generations.

In addition to being an international celebrity, Marie is also a savvy businesswoman. In 1991, she launched the Marie Osmond Fine Porcelain Collector Dolls line on QVC and at Disney theme parks. It has become QVC's top-selling doll line, was nominated for Trendsetter of the Year in the collectibles industry, and has moved into the retail and direct response markets. Marie began sculpting a number of her own dolls in 1993, and has received several Dolls of Excellence and Doll of the Year award nominations. She recently was honored with QVC's highest recognition, the coveted QStar Award, as well as being the first recipient of the collectible industry's highest honor, the Crystal Award.

Recently, Marie has expanded her business activities to include a wide range of products for the home sewing and crafting market. With national exposure on QVC's Crafting with Marie programs, she continues to inspire consumers nationwide.

Besides motherhood, perhaps her proudest achievement has been her role as a co-founder/co-host with John Schneider of Children's Miracle Network, a project of The Osmond Foundation. The largest annual broadcast in fundraising history, it has raised in excess of 3.4 billion dollars since 1983 for children's hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada. 100% of proceeds have stayed in the local area and gone towards medical treatment, research, and assistance.

Marie is the proud mother of eight beautiful children and considers them her greatest achievement.

Storage and Doll Care

Storage and Doll Care

  • When you purchase a doll, be certain to save all packaging, certificates, and inserts. This adds to the value to the doll if you ever want to sell it on the secondary market. Dolls (excluding antiques) without their original package have a lower resale value.
  • For long-term storage of dolls, place a layer of acid-free tissue between the doll and the fabric to help keep colors and dyes from bleeding. Make sure you check your stored dolls on a regular basis to ensure there aren't any issues with insects, dampness, and crushing.
  • Regular cleaning of porcelain and vinyl can be done with a soft cloth and distilled water — do not use soap, bleach, or chlorine products.
  • If you have a cloth doll, you can vacuum it through a layer of netting, but never vacuum silk.
  • Not everyone chooses to put their dolls in glass cases (which limits dust), since decorating with dolls is so much fun. The best way to keep them clean and fresh is to dust them on a regular basis, just as you dust your home. Using a large, soft brush works well on porcelain, vinyl, and even hair.
  • One of the biggest causes of damage to dolls is sunlight and smoke. Be sure to keep your dolls out of direct sunlight or long exposure to fluorescent light. Even if there aren't any smokers in your home, consider the effect of smoke from a fireplace.

LOVE THIS DOLL LOVE THIS DOLL! Her eyes are gorgeous deep brown and the detail in the outfit is wonderful. I think I'm going to order others to go with her!! I'm displaying her next to my jar of Hershey Kisses! Toooooo Cute! 02-20-08
Exceptional value This doll is a sweetie! As always exceptionally in quality and detailed. I Love her. Thanks Marie! 01-22-08
BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! I bought her for my mother for Christmas, and she just came in the mail today. I can't wait for my mother to open the box on Christmas morning and see her for the first time. Hershey's Kisses has always been her favorite chocolate every since she was a little girl, and this doll is SO BEAUTIFUL. I would recommend her to anybody 100%! 12-21-07
Complete Chocoholic Cuteness! I received this sweet doll for my birthday in late June 2007, and I couldn't be happier! Her coloring is much richer and deeper than it appears here on QVC's website. Her lush wig is fun to play with and no detail has been over looked in the costuming, I also think this doll also has a nice weight, makes a sweet lapful to cuddle. As a serious lover of chocolate, and Hershey's, she was a must-have for me! I also received the Hershey's Keepsake Doll, who looks lovely displayed with 100 years of Kisses, and now I'm looking forward to getting the Hershey's Tiny Tots to keep them company too. I plan to make a yummy display of these dolls in a kitchen nook, the dining room, or perhaps just "guarding" my candy dish. 08-18-07
Very nice I do like this doll, she has a very cute face. She came in perfectly condition. I am very glad I bought her 07-03-07
She is perfect! Marie Osmond Dolls have outdone themselves again!! Hershey's--100 Years of Kisses is just breathtaking! She looks even better than her photo suggests, and like all of Marie's dolls, 100 Years of Kisses was made with so much attention to detail. This little cutie is a definite keeper, and looks so adorable with her Hershey's "sisters"---Hugs, Kisses, Caramel Kisses, and Merry Kisses. 07-01-07
Cute Doll I bought the doll as a keepsake for my daughter; thought it would be cute in her bedroom next to a jar of hersey kisses. When I opened, wasn't sure how the left foot/leg went as it is bent a certain direction, otherwise very nicely packed and presented. 06-29-07
Cute Cute, but nothing special. I would recommend the doll to someone who is crazy about chocolate or anniversary pieces but that's about it. To reuse the face for as many times as Marie did with this doll, I was hoping for something with more of a "wow factor" 06-29-07
Beautiful I luv but unfortunately in the heat we are experience this week, the '100' part of the emblem on the dress stuck together and came off as I tried to pull it apart. I even waited a few hours to climatize the doll to the ac i nthe house. In a dilema of whether to send it back. I am not a big doll collector so the defect isn't a big thing for me just thought this was cute since we are going to Hershey on vacation this year. 06-27-07
