Do you kids even know what paper dolls are anymore?

Rapunzel Paper Doll

When I was a kid I loooooved paper dolls. My mother would buy me the books full of paper fashion and I would carefully cut out each dress, wig, shoe, or handbag that Barbie provided for me. I think there were also Precious Moments paper dolls! 

These days with the video games and online dressing games for children you just don't see paper dolls that often anymore! Occasionally you'll come across a paper doll book and your little fashionista children might ask "Mommy, what do you DO with it?" 


Do you children play with paper dolls? Did you?

I played with paper dolls and my oldest daughter used to play with them.  I'm not sure if my younger kids know what they are.  lol

Oh my gosh I LOVED paper dolls! We couldn't afford much in the way of toys so paper dolls were awesome! Easy on the budget and I could have a ton of stuff. My daughter isn't quite old enough yet, but I plan on giving her some in a few years. I hope she likes them!

I remember them from when I was a kid, but I don't see them around anymore.
