Why History Dolls?
One day I was having lunch with a friend. We were talking about toys we’d had and she said,
‘‘Do you remember the fun we had with our paper dolls? We made up stories about them. You could make one now.’
‘What a good idea!’
So I designed the Victorian Doll. with lots of her Victorian clothes. She’s very popular and was the first of the 7 paper history dolls.
Each doll is A6 size with an A4 sheet of her clothes to cut out plus a short story about her.
You can press the card dolls out, cut out their colourful paper clothes and dress them in their finery
You can choose your doll’s name and read her story. What clothes will your doll wear, for every day and for best?
