These Paper Dolly Fun paper dolls are the cutest things. Drawn by paper doll artist Ann Kovach, they embody homemaking at its finest. I love them! I am not sure of the publisher, but I believe they are from the 1940s.
This is the back cover, which is the dolls to cut out to dress and do all the weekly chores.
This first page of clothes is all about wash day. The biggest (Mommy) paper doll holds a basket of laundry that she is going to hang out to dry. Do you see the clothes pins on her apron? The little female doll has a matching outfit, as well as several other outfits for the smallest dollies. The smaller female is holding clothes pins in her hand and in her apron too. And it looks like two outfits for the small male doll as well. He is holding soap and a sock in one and a bucket (for water) and a shirt to be washed in the other.
Ironing day. Of course, these dolls were before permanent press! After drying in the sunshine, all the clothes would need to be ironed and that would be another day of work. Somehow these dollies don't seem to think of this work as drudgery. There seems to be a happiness about it all.
Gardening Day would be a favorite day for the dolls, I would think! Very cute blue bib overalls for the two female dolls. The little male doll has some brown overalls with a green shirt. One of the little female dolls has a green sun dress with seeds in her pocket. Another has a little pink sunsuit. For the smallest dolls there is also a yellow shorts overalls set with a blue shirt underneath and a pink shorts overall set with a blue and white striped shirt.
Picnic day would also be a fun and favorite day. It must be Saturday, eh?
These are very Susie Homemaker and so adorable.
No work on Sunday! That is Sunday School Day!
