Literary Paper Dolls

What It Is: A collection of paper dolls inspired by some of the literary world’s greatest authors. In general, themed paper dolls like this have been making a resurgence. Whether they’re actually played with or just a fun way to celebrate someone’s interests is up to you. This set in particular is fun though, because let’s be honest, writers aren’t typically known for their stellar style (present company excluded). Featuring 16 famous faces like William Shakespeare (who can be dressed in drag) and Harper Lee, the set also includes fun callouts to the authors’ stories, time period, and key works for those looking to go deeper.

Who It’s For: Your librarian friend, to celebrate her new job. Your wife, to commemorate her love for the classics. Your niece, to introduce her to some of the literary greats.

What It Costs: $17.95

Where It’s At: Available at Amazon.ca

    Well, if adults are now into colouring books, I’m sure paper dolls can be the next big thing.

    They might be fun to use with a language unit in a classroom.
