Amy, Magic Doll

Do you all remember the paperdolls that had clothes with no tabs?  
Their clothes just stuck to them.  Like magic.

This is Amy.  (Whitman 1968)


I do declare, I must have been out of my mind 
when I dressed this poor doll in a thick sweater for the bloggy-fashion-shoot.
It's a roasting outside!   She needs to be in a swim suit!


That's better!
Hope you are staying cool, too.

  2. Gayle I do remember the paper dolls like that. Paper dolls are one of my favorite things. I had tons of them when I was little but I am not sure whatever happen to them.

  3. So sweet!
    Glad I'm not the only one still playing with paper dolls.
    I just ordered some a few weeks ago on etsy. I'll have to show them to you on my blog sometime.
    A hint-there are five of them!

  5. Oh yes - indeed she needs a swim suit - and if she lived up here she could go out in the rain in it and be perfectly happy.

  6. No - really - the sweater is just the thing for the cold and the rain we've had up here today. I had to put the heat on in the house today - so late in July!

  7. Playing with paper dolls is a lovely way to stay cool. I have loads of them in my craft room. I think Miss Josie needs to be introduced to them again on this hot weekend.

    Amy is very cute. Does look happier in the swimsuit than the sweater.

  14. I do remember those -- loved them. I never could get into paper dolls -- no matter how my mom tried to convince me they were fun (not ;), but I loved the sticky ones.

  18. Too cute! And I'm glad you took care of poor Miss Amy. I get so angry with parents who don't dress their children appropriately for the weather!!

  22. Oh yes, I do remember paper dolls with the clingy clothes! My favorite paper doll was the Betsy McCall doll that was in the old McCall magazine. My grandma got that magazine and I got to cut out the clothes every month. Good memories.

  24. Oh! FUN! I do remember these. We weren't poor by any means, but my mother would buy me these as a little treat or surprise instead of a new doll. I loved them! :) I wish I had some of them now. sigh.... :)
