Paper Dolls - a little of their History

At the turn of the century in the United States Paper Dolls went from a plaything of the rich to one which most children could
enjoy.  This was due to some magazines and newspapers publishing them in the early 1900's.  
McCall's Magazine's first was
in June 1904.  The Betsy McCall series by 6 different artists was the longest running of any series, running off and on for 45
years, from 1951 to November 1996.

Ladies' Home Journal was the second to publish paper dolls in October of 1908, then Good Housekeeping & The
both in February of 1909.  The Delineator in September of 1910, Woman's Home Companion in January of
1911, and
Ladies' World in September 1916.  The quality was excellent and these are much in demand today among

In addition to the Betsy McCall series some of the most enduring series were: Dolly Dingle by artist Grace G. Drayton, Lettie
Lane series by Sheila Young, and the Kewpie Kutouts by Rose O'Niel.  Not only were these entertaining, but educational as
well.  Dolly Dingle went on a trip around the world, and children could learn how other children lived and dressed. She went
through World War II, sang opera, and celebrated all the holidays.  There is the golden age of paper dolls of the 1940's,
1950's and 1960's.  Collectors today treasure each new set they can add to their collection.  Paper doll collections are easy
to store and enjoy.  These wonderful works of art are treasured not by children but by adults, who appreciate their beauty,
history and artistry.

Today we sell many of the paper doll books to teachers for classroom study.  These include all the Civil War series and the
whole collection of the American Presidents.
