Magazine paper dolls have been published in magazines for over a century. We are trying to pull as many together to share with you as possible. We will post the random ones with one or two pages on this page, as well as a list of others with larger sets with links to their own pages.
Polly Gets Her Cap is an adorable nurse paper doll from The Golden Magazine. This one is especially dear to my heart because while most nurses don't wear a cap in this modern day, my mother-in-law was a nurse who always wore her cap proudly even when nobody else was wearing them anymore.
