Many a girl throughout the ages has played with paper dolls.
Back when I was a child in the 70's and 80's magnetic paper dolls of Holly Hobbie and Strawberry Shortcake were popular to play with.
I remember that I even made my own paper dolls based on Laura and Mary from Little House On The Prarie.
Today I have found some paper dolls from the 1940's and 1950's to share with you.
The quality and detail of the clothing for these paper dolls is amazing!
Pictured above is a set of Blondie, Dagwood and family. Featured in this set are stylish outfits for the whole family.
The bidding on this auction starts at $9.99 and there are 4 days left on the sale.
For a more silly and mature take on paper dolls check out the 1984 Hunks Paper Doll Book. You can cut out a picture of your head and attach it to a bikini clad paper doll refered to as Lucky You and then pose yourself next to your prefered "Hunk": The Surfer, The Millionaire or The Macho Man. This would be a great gag gift for a bridal shower!
