The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe is an adorable set of paper dolls. These are based on the nursery rhyme we all sing sang as children. This set is from Saalfield Publishing and I believe are from the 1960s.
She definitely had a lot of children!!!
Here is the first set of clothes. This page is all pajamas! There is one pajama outfit, the orange robe over a nightgown, for the old woman. She is holding a candle in this outfit. All the other outfits on this page are for her children. There is a lavender robe for one of the girls over a yellow nightgown. There is a yellow Oriental style pair of pajamas. There is a little blue pajama set for one of the smallest children. There is a green night shirt for one of the smaller children. There is another green pajama set for one of the children. There is a red and white and black outfit for the boy and girl twins. There is a blue pair of pajama bottoms with a matching robe over the top. And finally there is a blue nightgown for one of the older girls that has pink and a darker blue trim.
A page of holiday outfits, from Christmas, to Thanksgiving, to Easter, to 4th of July, Halloween, Valentine's Day, etc.
This is a page of school clothes. The Old Woman has a clock in her hand making sure they get to school on time.
This is a page of costumes. There is a green and pink fairy princess dress. An elf costume for one of the babies. A Robin Hood costume for one of the boys. An Oriental costume for another small child. There is an Arabian outfit for one of the girls. There is a lavender party dress with a yellow collar and yellow gloves. There is a Little Red Riding Hood outfit. The twins have a Jack and Jill outfit with yellow pants and a skirt, and white blouses with a red vest over it. Jack, of course, is holding a pail of water. The Old Woman is the Queen of Hearts.
