Patty & Cathy Duke paper dolls. 1960's.

I received this set of paper dolls as a birthday present when I was about 8-9 years of age. It was the best gift I got for any birthday, before I had turned 10!
The paper clothes had no tabs on them. It was a new sort of idea of a type of glue stick, that you rubbed on the cardboard mannequin and
then pushed the paper clothes onto the mannequin, and the clothes magically stayed there!!
I still have some of the set. My two daughters played with them for hours, when they were younger, and many little girls who have visited our home over the past 25 years have also had a lovely time playing with the set too! The set came in a long, thin box. I think it was a John Sands product.
Does anyone else have these paper dolls?
I also have a few pieces of a Buffy and Mrs. Beezly paper doll set, also from the 1960's.
