This set of Little Sweethearts paper dolls is #181 and comes from Stephen Publishing Company. It is a set from the 1950s.
Susan is the doll on the front cover. She is dressed in a cute little aqua sun suit with red shoes. She is holding a basket in one hand and has the other hand outstretched feeding a bird. There are several birds on the ground, as well as a squirrel.
The doll on the back cover is Karen. She is wearing a red shorts set and has black Mary Jane shoes. She is shown with a dog jumping for a treat that she is holding.
Unfortunately the inside pages are somewhat faded in coloring. You can certainly color those in yourself either with artist colored pencils or using a Photoshop type program. (I wish I knew how to fix that for you all.)
The first page has a lavender jacket, a couple of hats, a hand muffs/purse, some white books and white gloves with fringe. It also has a yellow pajama set, as well as a pink nightgown. The pink nightgown has matching slippers.
I have tried fixing these pages with Pic Monkey. The second sheet in each one is the corrections I was able to make using that program.
This page has 4 outfits. Two pants / play suits and 2 dresses. There are also a couple of dolls, a basket of flowers and some gloves.
Again, below is the same page after being editing with Pic Monkey. I think it helps some, but the dresses are still so faded. It makes me sad.
The next page covers both winter and summer. There is a snowsuit complete with boots. There is an adorable yellow shorts outfit, a yellow and white dress, a blue summer top, an apron, a scarf, an ice cream cone, crayons and a cupcake.
The last page has a cute blue quilted robe, slippers, a green and white dress, green summer top, a yellow hat, pink play suit (or pajamas), a necklace,and a bracelet. I hope you enjoy these!
Another copy of the same page, editing with Pic Monkey.
For ease of use, please see our complete PDF file of this set. (Not editing with Pic Monkey or other photo editing software - sorry!) I tried adjusting various settings in trying to get a better resolution.
