Peter and Polly?

These are paper dolls from Woolworth's or Grant's. They're of glossy, coated paper on a thick multi-layer die-cut paper backing. They stand up with the aid of plastic-circle bases and dual-nubbin holders. Were they published by Whitman? Yes; they were, and they're Peter and Polly Perkins, by Gertrude Kay. The box is still around.

Hello, This set of paper dolls is called The Polka Dot Tots. Do you have more scans?
Thank you.

No more scans, although I saw a scan of cut-out clothes in an eBay listing. I'm not sure whee the red box with the white polka dots is right not, but I know that the ring stands were still in it and most of the clothes (neatly cut out, of course) seemed to be, also.

I'm sorry I didn't sign in. The first time I was already signed in and I don't know how.

That's very kind; odoublegood at usa dot net should work. It wouldn't hurt to notify in advance of the size of any files in case room needs to be made.
