    Paper dolls are figures cut out of paper, with separate clothes usually held onto the dolls by folding tabs. They have been inexpensive children's toys for almost two hundred years. Today, many artists are turning paper dolls into an art form.Paper dolls have been used for advertising, appeared in magazines and newspapers, and covered a variety of subjects and time periods. They have become highly sought-after collectibles, especially as vintage paper dolls become rarer due to the limited lifespan of paper objects. Paper dolls are still being created today.Paper dolls have regained popularity with young children featuring popular characters and celebrities. Online and virtual paperdolls also have a popular following.

      These are awesome. Are they your version of those, did you image them or are they reproductions?

      These are my actual paper dolls that I have still got in my possession and you can see how much they have been played with as they were much loved. They are now around fifty years old.
