In 1934, at the age of six, America's favorite curly-headed moppet won a Special Academy Award for bringing "more happiness to millions of children and millions of grownups than any other child of her years in the history of the world." By the time she was eight, the young star was the number one international box office attraction.
This collection of classic Shirley Temple paper dolls makes the diminutive charmer available once again to delight fans, film buffs, paper doll collectors, as well as youngsters who know Shirley only through television and old films. Assembled by noted collector Grayce Piemontesi, these full-color dolls and costumes are compiled from two rare and popular collections first published in the 1930s.
Included in this volume are three full-color dolls — each a different size. The largest covers two pages and is 20 7/8 inches high; the medium-sized doll (10 1/4 inches tall) is two-sided and comes with outfits that give a delightfully realistic front-and-back view to the figure. The smallest stands 5 7/8 inches high.
Youngsters can dress these dolls in 18 attractive costumes — pleated and ruffled party dresses, pinafores for home and school, and sunsuits for the beach and backyard. There's also a snugly belted raincoat with galoshes and umbrella, a perky sailor suit, and a wide assortment of accessories, including hats, shoes, and handbags.
Attractively printed on heavy stock, this affordable and incredibly life-like collection will enchant movie fans, collectors, and children of all ages.
