The "Dolls of the Nations" from Hallmark,
were illustrated by Vivan "Viv" Trillow Smith.
She's the same gal who did the Land of Make Believe dolls I shared last week
and the Little Women dolls from an older post.
Look closely. Hawaii and Alaska are represented.
These cards were made in 1948. Alaska and Hawaii did not gain statehood until 1959.
The 16 dolls included in this collection are:
Sing Toy of China
Maria from Mexico
Antoinette of France
Rita from Brazil
Katrinka of Holland
John, a Royal Canadian Mountie
Ann of England
Kathleen of Ireland
Tautuk of Alaska
Christina of Sweden
Leilani of Hawaii
Monty of Australia
Barbel of Switzerland
Sandy of Scotland
Kusum of India
Hallmark created an album to keep the dolls safe
and to encourage children to collect them all.
The little girl on the cover is Luanna Patton,
star of Disney's "So Dear To My Heart".
Stop by again next week for more paperdolls.
