My Big Dolls to Cut Out and Dress

This giant uncut book is very fragile but survived scanning.  It features two large girls (the same pose with a flipped/reversed), named Carol and Peggy.  There are 5 pages of clothing.  This book was made by Samuel Lowe Company in 1944.

8 Standing Dolls

Here's an uncut paper doll book I swear I posted but doesn't show up when I search for it, so here it is! (maybe again?).  Sometimes I have trouble keeping track of what I have posted and what I haven't.  This uncut book has 8 dolls, as foretold in the title, designed to stand up.  It includes 4 boys and 4 girls and 4 pages of outfits.  This set was produced by Saalfield and published in 1948.  My copy is a little work and has a small tear on the pages.

Cut-Outs for Children

School is over, I got all A's and my schedule has freed up a bit.  I spent my free day yesterday scanning lots of paper dolls, preparing for the convention.  This is a newspaper paper doll called Cut-Outs for children.  I have a few sheets of these but don't know much about them.  None of them are dated or signed.

Best of Friends



This was a box set, though there's not much left of the box except a side with the name of the set.  Best of Friends may include different dolls then these ones shown. I have Irene and Gail, both are thick sturdy dolls. This set was produced by Sam Gabriel Sons Company but does not have a date.  This is a cut set and may be missing items.

This is a cut set that is incomplete.  I only have 2 of the orignal 5 dolls.  Little Cousins was produced by Samuel Lowe Publishing company and printed in 1940.

Mommy Me and Baby

I decided to make a quick mother's day paper doll.  I was inspired by this photo on Pinterest here.  It features a Mother, Daughter and Baby in matching outfits.  So I created a trio of dolls with matching outfits.  This was a quick doll, I just drew it today using the photo as a reference for the poses

My Baby Book

This adorable set features two baby dolls, a girl and a boy, Jean and John.  As with most baby sets, the girl clothes are pink and the boys are blue.  The set has some accessories but I don't think it's complete.  This is from Whitman 1942.
