These 10 Little Theater Paper Dolls are from 1960. They were originally published by Saalfield Publishing. I see a set of the original paper dolls on Amazon for $129.99! Wow! Here is the front cover, which includes 5 paper dolls!
This is the back cover, which includes another 5 paper dolls. I believe some of the dolls and outfits are extremely similar to The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe Paper Dolls.
Theater is very important to our family. We love going to plays, being in plays, putting on our own plays, so this book of paper dolls resonates with us. This first page of paper dolls has a Spring Fancy dress that is blue and white and has a matching bonnet. There is a spring time yellow set of outfits for the twins. The boy's hat is holding two rabbits. For the mother there is a Going to Market dress in pink with a purple apron. There is the Autumn Festival dress, which is black and pink. And the Little Boy Juan has a red and white pair of overalls with a yellow hat with a red band around it. He has his arm around a donkey.
This page of clothes has a Tennis Tina outfit, a String Along Sam outfit (fisherman), a Skip and Kim (jump ropers), a football player, Tennis Tony, and a purple Skating Princess.
Here we have a baby fair, a Prince Charming, a King's page, a Queen of Sheba, a Queen of Hearts and Jack and Jill. I know most of these outfits are in the previously mentioned Old Woman Who Lived in A Shoe paper dolls.
This page has a Valentine's Queen, a baby eating watermelon, a Miss Merry Christmas, a Rock-a-Bye Baby yellow outfit for the mother, an Easter Bunny outfit, a Trick or Treat kind of scarecrow outfit, and a Miss Liberty outfit for the 4th of July. Very patriotic.
This page features Little Jack Horner, a Birthday Boy, a Birthday Girl, a County Fair outfit, The Party Lady (the mom, of course), and Goody Two Shoes (little girl with a purple party dress).
This page includes Courtsey Time, Farmer's Pride (love the red and white polka dot dress - and are those piglets she's holding?), A Boy's Best Friend (the dog), The Rose Queen and Bobby Shattoe.
