Kewpie dolls were very popular when I was growing up. This paper doll book is not complete and has been enthusiastically played with, but what has survived is still very cute. I think much of its appeal is the dinky size of the dolls and their clothes. There must have been six dolls originally. I am missing number 1 - if I find it tucked away with some of my other possessions (together with any of the other dresses) I'll post it at a later date.
One more outfit for doll #5 can be found at the end of the Cinderella-Jack-and-Jill-Story Favourites paper doll post. It is an extra one I discovered when looking for the dresses for that post.
While I was sorting through some of my old paper dolls this week I found this dress. It belongs to my original set of the little ballerinas that I posted in January (25th). This is one of the extra dresses that was not in the book I bought on eBay recently but was included in my older version of the set.
