I loved playing with paper dolls when I was a little girl - something neither of mine girls ever enjoyed - boohoo for me. But I hope Eva and Mela will enjoy these magnetic dolls. I glued the shoes on because as anyone who has ever sat on a Barbie shoe knows - they never stay on the feet. Anyway, there are 4 sets of clothes with an extra top. The front looks like a closet and is storing a pair of pj's purple for Eva and yellow for Mela.
Dora is thanks to the inspiration of mimiscardcreations and card shark. Dora's face is thanks to my daughter Lia.

This is such a clever idea - i am sure she will enjoy this - your presentation is lovely.
Paper dolls were my favorite activity when I was little - I often cut the Sears catalog apart to make more clothes! And, alas, our daughter did not enjoy them - she had Barbie LOL!

This is fantastic!! I loved paper dolls too, but (my name is a giveaway) none of my offspring did. This is such a perfect idea, especially for someone who must stay indoors all of the time. Great idea, well implemented and sure to be a favorite!
