I love paper dolls! I found this great site: http://tpettit.best.vwh.net/dolls/pd_scans/betsy_mccall/index.html

I used to play with these at my grandma's house. The thing about paper dolls is, it is easy to scan and share. Someone did the LLL book and star fairies. As long as the scans are done at the same resolution, they match.

I am SO gonna print these out and play with them when I get home.

Thanks for starting this thread! I have so many fond memories of paper dolls.I also played with my grandmother's Betsey McCall dolls; she grew up during the Great Depression and said that sometimes they were the only dolls they had.

My favorite of my paper dolls was a Jasmine/Aladdin set. Jasmine had the best outfits! I recently found the box where all my old paper dolls were kept, I should look through them.

Wish List!
-Any Merwees (CAP Toys)
-Lady Lovely Locks Seek & Peek board game
-Used/nude Fashionista Ken
