Pippi Longstocking Paper Doll

November 14th 2007 was the centenary of the birth of Astrid Lindgren, author of popular children's bokk character Pippi Longstocking. Pippi, and her creator Astrid, are respected and love throughout the world but nowhere as much as in Sweden, their birth place. There you'll find a whole theme park devoted to Astrid and characters from her book, Astrid Lindgren World, located in Vimmerby in south-east Sweden.

The Astrid Lindren World web site has this cute Pippi Longstocking paper doll available in color and black & white. Click on "For children" to find them or go directly to this page. The set includes three pages of clothes for Pippi and her faithful friend, Mr. Nilsson the monkey!

Cute bunny paper doll

This paper doll is called cute bunny paper doll, and cute it is! There are only two sets of clothes, the nurse uniform in the picture and equally adorable green dress with a hat. So I guess it's safe to say that the playability of this set is limited but it's very pretty to look at and is a cute picture to print out and frame, perfect for a girl's bedroom!

Big collection of cute paper dolls, both in color and black and white

I've already written about a cute paper doll with lots of clothes that is available in two versions, in color and black and white - for those who want to color their own dolls! That doll is from the Billy Bear collection of paper dolls and there is plenty more available! Some are for sale but there are plenty of free ones if you dig around. The dolls are extremely kid friendly with various motives to fit everyone's taste. There is even a big collection of furniture to print out and build you own paper doll house!
The paper doll in the picture is Rose the Ballet Paper Doll, the doll is in color but the clothes are black and white so you can decide on the color of her costume!
Submitted by Taylor - thanks!

Retro paperdoll

A 50's diner waitress perhaps, with a tray full of sodas? The print and play database has paper dolls and other activities to print out and play with. The website is for subscribers but there is a free gallery that currently has three paper dolls, Jane Smith here (the retro one), a robot and a funny looking tree you can dress up.
