Paper Dolls have been around for a long time. These beauties have been made in several different countries and little girls have enjoyed them for many years. Before the paper dolls were made many young child cut pictures out of catalogs and played with them.
Some families were like ours and really could not afford these things when the children were young and the catalog was the only resource available for play dolls! Stick dolls and many others have been played with over the years but the paper doll was and still is a favorite for many.
There are lots of people who have a collection of these beautiful dolls and collect many different varieties of them. McLoughlin Brothers, was founded in early 1800 and was the largest maker of paper dolls. They sold out to Milton Bradley in the 1920’s.
Paper ages and decays fairly fast if not stored correctly and because of this there are many paper dolls that are very expensive. Many vintage un-cut paper dolls will sell for $100.00 – $500.00 and above.
