Betsy McCalls

10:31:00 PM

I love playing paper dolls when I was a kid, I bet you do too! :D
I remember every time the school bell rang I would find myself hurrying to the front of my school gate where there is a small vendor selling different kind of toys that never ceased to amused elementary school students ^o^ Me and my brother (and the whole class!) would stumbled between the seller's colorful toys and stationery, me and the rest of the girls would usually browse the paper dolls (and once or twice a week i would buy one or two ;p). I have a drawer full of paper dolls in my room, it's my favorite past time as a child (that's before I knew Barbie ;p). So when I found these really cute Betsy McCall paper dolls while I was browsing the internet one day, it makes me remember my golden days of when I used to make up never-ending stories with my paper dolls, changing their clothes every so often. (sigh) the nostalgia of it... (please forgive my melodramatic side here..)

Anyway, my old paper dolls doesn't really looked like Betsy McCalls but these paper dolls are as enticing as any paper dolls would be. I love the vintage dresses and backgrounds in Betsy McCalls, bet you're gonna love it as much as I do :)
Here we go..


(the first Betsy McCalls debut)





(look at the international dresses Betsy has!)


(even Betsy has a bond! -lol)




Betsy McCall was announced in April of 1951 and first appeared on the pages of McCall's magazine in May, 1951. Betsy was introduced as a young girl in age of five going on six with brunette hair. In the upcoming months a lot of characters has also been introduced, such as Betsy's mother and daddy, Nosy -Betsy's dachshund dog, her cousins -Barbara, her neighbor friend Jimmy, etc..
I don't think they still produce Betsy McCalls paper dolls anymore. Wait a minute... do they even still make paper dolls anymore? Is there even a paper doll anywhere that you could buy? I don't think today's little girl plays with paper dolls anymore, do they?? It's so sad....
Anyway, here's more Betsy to cheer you (me) up..


(i just love betsy's dresses!)



(more florals and pastels!)



(betsy's mother also has great style!)



(and not only dresses, pants too!)



(oh the lovely Betsy..)



I MISS MY PAPER DOLLS....!!
