Some of her first creations were dolls representing popular characters, such as Alice in Wonderland, Little Women, and the Three Little Pigs. During World War II, she developed dolls representing the armed forces, and by the late 1940's she switched to using hard plastic for her dolls because it was harder to break.

In 1953, she released the Alexander-kins, eight-inch dolls made of plastic. Alexander-kins may be the most well-known Madame Alexander dolls today. Although she sold the company in 1988, dolls bearing the name "Madame Alexander" are still sold today.
