My 1970s Paper Dolls

I have got to be the only kid my age who played with paper dolls when they were younger. I nearly forget about them until I was going through Pinterest this morning and came across a lovely printable paper doll dress, It reminded me of the paper dolls I played with when I was younger. Curious, I decided to google it to see if I could find the same set, and lo and behold, I did!

They were Ginghams paper dolls, they have four girls, Carrie, Kate, Sarah, and Becky. Each girl had a color that all their clothes revolved around. All of Carrie’s clothes were blue, Katie’s were pink, Sarah’s was green, and Becky’s were yellow.

They weren’t brand new, obviously, they were almost fifty years old when I had them, so though I had multiple sets, as I look at pictures now I realize I may have been missing some pieces. I don’t remember very much of the stuff I had but I did my best to find the ones I could remember

Now, if I remember correctly, this one had the schoolroom, the front yard, the Christmas/living room, a bedroom, and the kitchen. There was also furniture for each room which was one of the fun parts, and some clothes.

I more than sure I had more than this but I can’t recall them well enough to talk about it. I don’t know what happened to these dolls. I wish I still had them, but the last thing I need is more old toys to clutter up the house. I loved these beautiful dolls, I feel like I got to relive a piece of my childhood by writing this post! 😂


Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed!
