Magic Mary 1950's Era Magnetic Paper Dolls

by Barb
(Laguna Niguel CA)

These are magnetic paper dolls, in which the doll has an embedded magnet and each outfit has a small piece of metal taped to the back. I have a set of these paper dolls that my mom saved. I really don't want them but, they've lasted this long I would like to see them go to someone who might appreciate them. They are in the box but the box is beat up. I have the doll itself (no stand) and all the outfits. The outfits have their piece of metal on the back, but on some the front is discolored where the metal is attached. I am in a downsizing mode and would like to see these find a good home rather than toss them.

I could never figure out how the clothes stayed on, until I realized I was magnetizing them by rubbing them on the doll! Static electricity....I didn't know there were dolls with magnets!
