Paper Doll Memories

by Diane
(Indianapolis, In)

Hi,
I'm 66 and still have some of my paper dolls, thanks to my grandmother who stashed them away for me when I started growing up. My favorite ones had wrap around skirts. Seems all the clothes were always pink, baby blue, or yellow. I still have some of the children from a book that featured 8 little boys and girls about the same age. My favorite boos were babies and toddlers. My first plane ride was when I was eleven, and Mom bought me a Shirley Temple Paper Doll book to enjoy on the plane.
What is especially fun is watching ebay or etsy for books that I remember, or the many other websites that feature paper dolls. Such memories.
