Hader Collection #Two
Paper Dolls/Paper Toys
A Collection Book from Forget-Me-Not Publishing
ALL Pages are laser printed on archival easy-to-cut 80# CARDSTOCK
These delightful and cleverly designed dolls come from pairing the talents of Berta and Elmer Hader. They did these darling girls for Good Housekeeping Magazine from 1923-1926. They represent a colorful, somewhat Art Deco style. This grouping includes around-the-world costumes and characters including: Russia, Holland, Sweden, China, Scotland, Romania/Gypsy, as well as school, Sunday School, and Grandma's farm.
What makes these dolls unique, is that they may be considered BOTH a Paper Doll AND a Paper Toy.
ALL PAGES on CARDSTOCK!
To play as a paper doll, cut and join upper and lower portions of the doll, then dress with a costume as usual.
To make a walking toy, cut the little shoes and roll them around, paste tab to form a circle, to put on your fingers. Use the upper portion of the doll with your fingers becoming the legs and your fingertips wearing the shoes. To hold the doll upright, slip a fine ribbon through the slots on the dress, and lightly tie around your hand. You may need some help to do this. What fun it is to have your dolls walk about and play with you!
Thanks to my mother, Helen Johnson, for being such a champion collector of Magazine Paper Dolls, and for loaning me her collection.

NOTE: We have been asked by several customers to print these on single 80# pages, as some are framed, or put into binder sleeves, or are just easier to cut. So for now, all pages are printed on single 8.5" x 11" archival 80# laser paper.
These papers are a dream to cut...nice clean edges, no popping of inks, very smooth and fun to handle. We slip the book into a crystal clear archival protective Mylar sleeve to keep it nice and clean. Price reduced.
