    linked back to your other paper doll post too and what a TRIP! i too had the GINGHAMS!!! i don’t know anyone else who has even heard of them! and the last barbie set, i had as well. recently a friend from church told me she had never played with any paper dolls and hasn’t ever bought any for her 8 year old. ACK! poor, poor girl. both of them! this was fun :-)

    Oh so cute! I, having a similar need to acquire paper dolls, found LOTS of printables on Flickr. Check out Elsie Dimsmore and her amazing array of gingham dresses for every occassion!

    Oh my goodness, I had completely forgotten about these, but I had ’em, all of them. I remember getting Mary Lou on Easter morning (did she have a houndstooth pantsuit? Why, yes!).

    I just bought an earlier…say early 60s…version of Magic Mary on a whim for a great price ($3.50!) in eastern Oregon. So funny to see her here.

    Yeah, I had some version of this…I don’t think it was Mary though. I remember the magnet on the doll somehow wouldn’t line up right with the magnet on the clothes and they would look all strange hanging 1/2″ from where they were supposed to be.

    Oh my gosh, I HAD one of those once! I had totally forgotten her until I saw her here. Got her for a birthday or Christmas (they were close). So loved the magnets over the paper tabs. Wow, thanks for the trip down memory lane.
