Printable Paper Dolls

As a little girl, I loved paper dolls.  My grandmother knew how much I enjoyed playing with them, and she would periodically surprise me with a shiny new and not-yet-torn paper doll book.

I’m not quite sure if I just grew out of paper dolls or if paper dolls became less popular; probably both. I wanted my kids to have the fun of cutting out and playing with their own dolls and dressing them up like I did.

Sadly, paper dolls books are hard to find now.  But those looking for wonderful and free printable paper dolls will find this page a treasure trove of paper doll templates and printables.

Are paper dolls collectable items?

Paper dolls, these two-dimensional figures that are drawn or printed on paper, are indeed a collector’s item. It is not unusual for collectors to expand their collections to include other toys that are printed on paper, like paper airplanes, animals, and villages.

Collectors are drawn to the popular figures from the stage, big screen, opera, and television that have appeared as paper dolls.  Vintage paper dolls include political figures and royalty as well.

Paper dolls bring back the childhood memories of playing with these wonderful toys, and those memories draw many adults back as collectors.

When were paper dolls popular?

Paper dolls were extremely popular in the 1930s through the 1950s.  Paper toys were something that almost everyone could afford even during the Great Depression.  It is true that there were paper shortages during World War II, so the paper toys were made on a very low quality paper, yet still enjoyed by children.
