Playing Paper Dolls
Just saw a picture of paper dolls on the internet. When I was a little girl we could buy a book of paper dolls and cut them out and play paper dolls. They had tabs all around on the clothes to bend over the doll to hold the clothes on but I hated those tabs for some reason so I would cut those off and just hold the doll's dress on. Of course we would talk and do animations. A cousin of mine who was my age and often played with me hated that I cut the tabs off so she would lick the back of the dress to try to make it stay on. I hated for her to do that. If we didn't have the money to buy a book of paper dolls and were desperate to play we would cut the lady images out of the Sears Roebuck catalog but they weren't as much fun as all the dresses and accesories in the paper doll book.
