POLLY and PETER PERKINS


It's summer. Time for kids to play with toys that allow their imagination to flourish.

Here's another Polly and Peter Perkins. This one is from the April 1934 Pictorial Review.

Click on the image and you'll be taken to Flickr where you can download a larger copy. I'd recommend pasting the dolls onto an old cereal box in order to give them some stability. You could easily make a stand for each doll from some of the box. Hopefully there's some little kid out there who'll find hours of fun creating stories for the characters.

  1. Oh don't I'm quite tempted to get out a cereal box!

  2. I know. There's something so soothing about sitting and cutting out paper dolls. Don't know why, but I remember the world would just disappear.

  3. Paint by Numbers is good for that too.

  4. And basket weaving. I'm not kidding. Basket weaving is like taking a valium without the side-effects. Very calming.
