My Paper Dolls
I love paper dolls and have since I was a kid. Here you can see some highlights from my well-loved childhood cut paper dolls and some newer uncut paper dolls which I have acquired as an adult. I've chosen to show pds I think are fun, not necessarily the most artistic or valuable. These pages have a lot of pictures so, be patient while they load. and your patience shall be rewarded.
Note: None of these paper dolls is for sale. Also, covers and pages have been cropped. Before proceeding, please read this. Also, not all links may worj as I'm in the process of transferring files.
My Barbie® paper dolls are up here. These are mostlyfrom the 1970s and early 1980s.
Trixie Belden - Some people liked Nancy Drew, but I preferred Trixie and the Bob-Whites. I loved reading her mysteries! And I have two different paper doll versions of Trixie, here is one of them. There are four sets in existence.
Here are The Archies! They aren't in very good shape, I'm afraid.
The Archies (book)
Not shown: Jughead and Reggie.
I have a small collection of Disney paper dolls. Snow White is my favorite princess and I have found a few sets of paper dolls featuring her. I finally got some Sleeping Beauty ones at a supermarket near me. I missed out on some a few years ago. I have most of the major characters, including three different Little Mermaid sets. Note: I have not put up the pictures of SB and the latest LM.
The Ginghams, one of my favorite series. I just love the time period and they are so lovely in their detail. I have three different books, all played with, and they got sort of mixed up. I haven't taken the time to sort them out, yet. Also, some of the boxed ones which have not been opened so far.
Remember the Honey Hill Bunch®? Plus, Donny and Marie and Starr®, click here.
These were one of my favorites as a kid. Thanks to Minx Kelly (visit her page Second Childhood) I now know the set is called Sugar and Spice. I think the little girls are so pretty and I love their clothes! I am only showing a few of their lovely dresses.

Fashions of the Gilded Age ,(Tom Tierney is a wonderful pd artist!), and some Japanese animé ones that were a gift from a doll collector in Japan. HERE
Madeline that adorable French orphan from the Ludwig Bemelmans' books.
Katy Keene, the most glamorous comic book character ever!
These are Katy Keene "Romance" paper dolls. Basically, the book chronicles Katy's Hollywood adventures after she arrives to take a stab at acting. She meets Randy Van Ronson, the world's wealthiest (and youngest!) tycoon who naturally takes a shine to Katy. Randy also happens to be the cousin of Katy's longtime rival, Gloria Granbilt.
Batman and Robin (Walmart exclusive) featuring Batgirl and Poison Ivy. Okay, these do not look like the actors and actresses, but rather comic book characters. I like it that way, actually. There are four dolls: Batman/Bruce Wayne, Robin/Dick Grayson, Batgirl/Barbara Wilson (I want to say Gordon!), and Poison Ivy/Pamela Isley.
