Early paper dolls came in books, boxes, folders, magazines, newspapers, and advertisements. By the 1920s and 1930s, most paper dolls came in a book with the doll figures on the cardboard covers and the clothing on the paper pages within. These paper doll books sold for just five cents or a dime, even during the Great Depression. Paper dolls were most popular during World War II probably because materials needed for other kinds of toys were directed to the war effort. Once American kids discovered television, however, many gave up their paper dolls. The toy form was never again as popular as it was in the first half of the 20th century. - National Museum of Play Online Collections


As bonecas de papel, ou paper dolls, apareceram primeiro em livros, caixas, folhetos, revistas, jornais e anúncios publicitários. Por volta de 1920 e 1930, a maioria das bonecas de papel vinham impressas em revistas de capa dura e as roupas e acessórios vinham nas páginas internas, de papel mais fino. Essas revistas populares eram vendidas por centavos de dolar mesmo durante a Grande Depressão. Ficaram ainda mais populares durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, provavelmente, porque os materiais necessários para outros tipos de brinquedos foram direcionados para o esforço de guerra. Uma vez que as crianças americanas descobriram a televisão, as bonecas de papel, assim como o papercraft em geral, foram sendo deixados de lado. Esta forma de brincar nunca mais foi tão popular como era na primeira metade do século 20. - National Museum of Play Online Collections
