20 Retro Dolls of the World
Today we have a splendid collection of Retro Dolls of the World Images. I am so excited to share this series of lovely Dolls from all over the World. Each wears a full native folk costume representing her country. I’ll bet some of you remember these doll images from your childhood! There are so many pretty ones that you will want to use them all. These were scanned from the original boxed set, there were a few missing that I have added to over the years as I find them and finally now we have included the last one, so you are getting the complete set! I believe these were from around Circa 1940’s, there was not copyright on the box. Our cute Retro Dolls would be perfect to frame for a wall display in a child’s room or playroom. You might also use some of them in a Junk Journal as Handmade Cards!

Thanks so much Kitty! Hope you had a great weekend too!
I have my grandmothe’sr set of 12 notecards with these doll images on the notecards. I have one doll not included in this this collection. Could this be the missing doll? I have the American doll. I would be happy to donate the image if possible. I framed the beautiful doll notecards in groupings of three in four gold frames. These pictures hung in my daughters playroom for years before I moved them to another room.
Thank you Pat that is so sweet and generous of you to offer but I would love for you to keep it but really appreciate your kindness 🙂
