Robin Woods, Inc began shipping dolls from its factory in Pittsburgh on August 22, 1983. The production staff consisted of 12 people: a floor supervisor, 6 sewers, 1 stuffer and closer, 2 artists, 1 screen printer, and 1 packager; there were three people in the office: Robin -the Artist, Bob-the Sales and Marketing Genius (truly!), and Donna–customer service and office manager. The first dolls were made of cloth, with formed fabric faces, made from a technique which Robin developed in her kitchen. There were three series: The Premiere Collection; The Poetry of Childhood Collection; and The Mardi Gras Clowns.
