From its early beginnings in Lincoln, Terri Lee was a family enterprise. Company founder Violet Lee Gradwohl named the legendary doll after her daughter. Violet's cousin, noted artist Maxine Stevens, sculpted the original mold. Over the years several family members worked at the factory both in Lincoln and Apple Valley, California. Today, Terri Lee Associates owns the rights to the line and licenses the manufacture, sale, and distribution of Terri Lee products.
