Oh my goodness. It must be some sort of right of passage. This is the first set I too bought on eBay. Lots of clothes, fun box, and one of those little round plastic stands. I was so giddy when I got them as if I were 7 and saw my teenage future out in front of me.
I know what you mean! I associate this era with the "older" kids when I was growing up, and I think that's part of the fascination. Plus things changed so much in the following decade, style-wise, to say the least.
I loved these--it's amazing how short those shorts were--and in the 1950's!!!Thanks for sharing these.I've really enjoyed these paper doll postcards!
