Paper Dolls

I had a set of paper dolls at my grandparents' house when I was a young(er) girl. I remember really loving them. So, when I saw this calendar on Apartment Therapy, I couldn't help myself.

This adorable calendar is from Tiny-Us--a french company whose proceeds go to a school for handicapped children. As if this design wasn't adorable enough, there is a great cause behind it to boot. The calendar is available for purchase through donation and then you can print it out at home. We used a local print shop so that we could have could quality card stock since I planned on the paper dolls being played with.
Once we cut the girls and their first pair of outfits out, the girls played with them for quite a while. The girls are especially excited that they get two new outfits at the end of each month. They'll have quite a collection by the end of the year!

Princess Abbey gives her approval (in all her play-make-up glory).

You can purchase the calendar here.


  1. This is an awesome idea! i remember playing with paper dolls as a child and having them in a calendar is a really great idea.

  2. My cousin and I spend HOURS playing with the American Girls paper dolls that I would bring with me to my grandparents house. What a great memory! I feel sorry for my mom who had to cut out the extremely detailed outfits and accessories! Eventually I got old enough to help cut stuff out. (I had all the girls--I was a super fan!)
