So who remembers paper dolls? Apparently they have been around since the early days, but didn’t begin to be marketed until about 1810. They are still available, but I don’t see many kids playing with them.
I used to love paper dolls. They had such a wide array of outfits available, and it was fun to make your own clothes for your dolls. All you needed was some paper, crayons, scissors, and a little imagination. They were also so portable. If you were going on a car ride, you just had to slide them into an envelope, and the fun would travel.
I can see how today’s kids might not be as attracted to such a simple play concept. Paper dolls aren’t fancy or on a computer, but I remember playing with them for hours. How about you?
