Have you played with paper dolls? No? Oh, what a shame! You’ve got to give it a try. They’re really quite fun! I really like those cardboard ones I used to buy from the Mama shops but if you don’t have access to them, these Delia and Ollie paper dolls will do too!
For those who don’t know, paper dolls are figures cut out of paper, with separate clothes that are usually held onto the dolls by folding tabs. They have been inexpensive children’s toys for almost two hundred years. I really should have kept some of my collections because they have apparently, become highly sought-after collectibles, especially as vintage paper dolls become rarer due to the limited lifespan of paper objects.
Anyway, you can download the Delia and Ollie paper dolls here and all you need is to get them printed in color for some instant paper doll fun!
