How many of us have dressed dolls in our childhood.

I had a childhood where my parents just had enough to make ends meet, so I had only one doll who had just one dress. I used to carry her everywhere and sleep with her. Today when I see barbi dolls with different clothes and how little girls enjoy changing them, making her look different, I feel really nice. Its a part of growing up, with all the female instincts of caring being reared at this early age. Good for the girls and good for the manufacturers.

hi kethy! i'm one of the fortunate girls who had experienced changing dresses of dolls. i can't remember how many dresses my dolls had when i was little but i can remember changing them for every "occasion". but it is with paper dolls that i had tons of dresses since i can make them by myself! i would make new dresses for my paper doll each day and my cousins even thought that i was good in designing dresses for my age. they thought i was going to be a fashion designer. ^__^;; but i changed interests in the course of my life. :p i used to make paper dolls for my cousins and nieces too. and sometimes i would make dresses for them too. i just had a lot of fun making those. i think it became my favorite toy at that point in time.

You must have been really good. I can imagine all the fun you must have had making paper dolls and clothes to fit her. This idea never occured to me when I was small. Did you never seriously consider fashion desigining. Great stuff.

I never did really like to play with dolls and such. I was too much of a tomboy. I used to go with my dad over to his friends house and they had a son and a daughter. they had all kinds of toys to play with. The little girl had all kinds of dolls and clothes for them. I used to love to play with them and dress them in different clothes even though I hated actually playing with dolls.

I remember using Kleenex tissues to make doll dresses. Of course, the doll I was dressing was a tad bid smaller tha n a Barbi so the tissues were just the right size for making the perfect wrap dress. And in my eyes, that doll was a well dressed doll.
