Vintage Image of the day, Betsy McCall, May 29, 2012

Starting in 1951Betsy McCall paper dolls were printed in most McCall's Magazines. For 10¢ to 25¢ (depending on the year) cardboard-backed paper dolls could be ordered.

They usually had some sort of theme although this theme is kind of loose.  The last dress is about going back to school, pretty appropriate for August.

Betsy McCall became so popular  Ideal and American Character Dolls both made a Betsy McCall doll.

I've posted Betsy McCall before here and here if you love paper dolls.  I know I did.  These images are clickable so if you want to print them and make your own paper dolls, you can!
