Life-like Doll Set, c. 1950

Simplex Toys. Very strange looking paper dolls, with embossed features for that "life-like" look! Always interesting to find playthings that are not necessarily "cute." Clothing is embossed, too. Each doll has a stiff plastic plate on the back in which to tuck the tabs. The dolls are thick, so the paper clothing would otherwise fall off easily. I'm guessing on the date.
