Not to long ago I saw my niece playing with paper dolls. I thought they were out of fashion these days, with all the other fashion dolls available in the market. Sure brought back of memories. I played with paper dolls a lot when I was a kid. I remember buying them from the neighbourhood grocery store. They usually come in A4 sized cardboard paper which you can cut out the dolls, clothes and accessories from.
They are cheap and simple yet easy and fun to play with. You can just slip another paper dress when you want to change her clothes.
Following the shape of dresses that came along with the paper dolls you can even cut new dresses from other blank papers for you to design on. Helps develop creativity as well.
The only similarity between the fashion paper dolls and the plastic ones is, they are usually slim, slender girls. Even at a young age we were fed with the idea that – slim is good, fat is not acceptable. *sigh* It seems like most girls are destinied to be on the look out for what are the best diet pills. LOL
