Some playthings are timeless. Paper dolls, for instance. I played with them. My mother played with them. My little one received this set for her birthday. She has loved the books by Laura Ingalls Wilder - the same ones my mother read to me as a child – so these have been dearly loved as well. While this particular set is not available for free (but oh so reasonable from the independent sellers, here), we have other collections that we have printed for free. There are so many darling sets of paper dolls available online for you to print at home. And the best part is that when one gets a bit love-worn, a new one is just a click away.
Here are a dozen free printable paper doll collections. Enjoy, friends!
