How many of these did I play with in the 70's? I LOVED them! They came with cute outfits, and they were cheap! My Mawmaw and my Moma bought me a lot of them. They would help me punch out the little outfits because they tore so easily; they were fragile, especially in the hands of a five year old.
Like paper dolls, people are fragile. Life is fragile. No matter how fancy we dress or how careful we are, we are easily hurt or "torn" by those we allow in our lives.
One of my favorite quotes is by Bob Marley.
FYI: I don't see paper dolls anywhere anymore, so I did a little googling, and guess what I found? See if any of these bring back any memories! You can still buy them by clicking on the link for each. I think I'll buy a few for when my granddaughter gets to be a little older. Right now she is ten months old and just enjoys the sound of tearing paper. <3
