Playing with paper dolls is one of my very favorite childhood memories, and I could only have dreamed of a set this cool when I was younger! Not only are the paper dolls and their outfits and accessories fabulous, but the decade-by-decade look at fashion trends is fun and informative. Such a special book!
A highly giftable, stylish paper doll book, published in partnership with The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, home to unforgettable fashion.
Travel through 14 key moments in fashion history!
From the 1880s to the present day, learn about the clothes that people wore through lavishly illustrated scenes featuring outfits from the Costume Institute’s collection. Each outfit tells a story and links to a time and place, from Hollywood glamour to a 1970s roller disco, and an eco-friendly 2020s clothes swap. Read about the designs of the times, with select highlights of key designers, and must-know facts.
Turn to the back of the book to press out and play with three dolls and choose from 14 stunning outfits to style them. Learn more about each outfit before styling your doll, and head to the scene in the book for hours of imaginative play.
