Of all the 'contemporary' paper dolls I played with as a child this set of Mini Mods was undoubtedly my favourite. The clean lines and bright colours make it an absolute treat.
The book consists of five dolls and a wonderfully trendy wardrobe of clothes. I'm not sure if I noticed when I was young that the names given to dolls in these sets always tended to be alphabetical. Here we have Alice, Betsy, Candy, Diana and Emmy.
The two dolls chosen for the cover of the book were also my favourites. Betsy always had a slight edge over the others with her curly hair and striking swimsuit. Alice came second in her snazzy floral number.
The clothes were everything a fashion conscious young girl of the swinging 60's could ask for. This set gives me a pang of pure nostalgia every time I look at it.
All the outfits follow. Unfortunately I don't have a back cover that is still intact, but I have included all the punched dolls to complete the set.
