Sunbonnet Sue Paper Doll

The Sunbonnet Sue Paper Doll is from 1951 and is Whitman #2062.

Here is the cover and the adorable doll named Sunbonnet Sue.  This doll came with real life-like hair that was made out of Saran.  (I'm not even sure what that is.)  On the cover she is dressed in her little sun suit and her sunbonnet, of course.

Sunbonnet Sue Paper Doll Clothes:

A birthday party just for sue.  Cake and flowers and Ice cream too!  I think that sums up this page pretty well!  Love the pink party dress and the blue apron.  Soooo cute.

A pretty hat with dress and vest.  I love the rich red color and her cute gold bracelet.

This new plaid skirt for very best...

A pair of overall for playing outside.  Dressed up with some cowgirl items, such as pop gun, a vest and a TV with a western show on it.

Another sun suit, this one in orange.  There is also a seal here and some beach toys.  And a nice beach cover up for when she gets too much sun.  The words on this page say Sammy Seal Gives Sue A Ride.

Here is a nice, green winter outfit.  The words on this page say, "Sue's winter bonnet has brown fur on it!"

The back cover of this Sunbonnet Sue paper doll book gives detailed instructions on how to arrange the life-like hair.  The words say:  Sunbonnet Sue is a new kind of paper doll.  She has soft, pretty, life-like curls that you can brush over your finger.

To put the curls in place, follow these directions.  First, punch out Sunbonnet Sue.  Also punch out the three slots in the doll's head.  The arrows will show you where to look for them.

Now, open the package of life-like curls.  There are three pieces of hair, a wide, wavy bang for the top of Sue's head, and a smaller curl for each side.  Start with the big piece. Squeeze the hair together at one end.  Force that end through the wide slot for at least one-fourth of an inch.  A toothpick will help you push it in. Carefully spread the hair out to fill the slot.

To hold the hair in place,  fasten a strip of transparent tape or other adhesive across the back of Sue's head.  See the diagram at the left.  Put in the small life-like side curls and fasten them in place in the same way.  When all the hair is in the slots, shape the curls as you wish by brushing them carefully over your finger.
