Children in the Shoe
Paper Dolls

Children in the Shoe paper dolls is a 1949 set from Merrill Publishing. 

I just love these dolls.  They are beyond adorable.  On this page we have Timmie, Susie, Peggy and Tommy.

This page of dolls has dolls of the baby doll, Dolly and the dog, Lucky.  Plus Dolly's chair.

This first page of clothes are all clothes for the Susie doll.  There is a cute spring time party dress that is white with small red flowers all over it.  The dress has a ruffle around the bottom and the neck area.  It is tied around the waist with a green ribbon.  In her hands she is holding a basket of flowers in one hand and in the other hand some flowers.  It must be her gardening dress.  There is also on this page a blue and white striped dress with a white smock or apron.  Since she is holding a chalkboard in her hands I would say this is a school dress.  There is a hat between the two dresses that could go with either one.  On the bottom is a tan colored button up coat with a belt.  I love that it has double sets of buttons across it.  There is also a summer outfit in green and white polka dots.  She is holding a beach ball and a towel - all ready for the beach.  The other accessories on this page include an umbrella, blue bows for her hair, sunglasses, a pencil, an ice cream cone, a green hat and a green purse.

This page of clothes has outfits for both Timmie and Dolly.

Another page of adorable outfits!  It looks like these are all for Tommy.  He's got a pair of red and white striped pajamas (complete with bedtime story book), a robe and pajamas, a yellow sweater, a blue snow suit with a red and white scarf and red mittens.  He also has a pair of green overalls that sure do remind me of Dennis the Menace.  He also has a pair of brown shorts and a green and white top.  Boy styles have changed a lot - I don't think any boys' clothes today would have lace or ruffles.  The accessories on this page include an ice cream cone, a ball, a wagon and toy, a sand bucket and shovel, and two hats.

This last page of clothing for the Children in the Shoe Paper Dolls is for Peggy.  She's got a school dress, a summer dress (in green and white stripes), with an adorable little cropped jacket to go over it.  There is also a red coat and a blue dress.  The accessories on this page include a straw hat, some blue beads, some suckers, some candy holders, a bunny rabbit, a rose, and a blue hat.
