About the Author

Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867–1957) was born in a log cabin in the Wisconsin woods. With her family, she pioneered throughout America’s heartland during the 1870s and 1880s, finally settling in Dakota Territory. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885; their only daughter, Rose, was born the following year. The Wilders moved to Rocky Ridge Farm at Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894, where they established a permanent home. After years of farming, Laura wrote the first of her beloved Little House books in 1932. The nine Little House books are international classics. Her writings live on into the twenty-first century as America’s quintessential pioneer story.



Renée Graef received her bachelor's degree in art from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She is the illustrator of numerous titles in the Little House publishing program, as well as Rodgers and Hammerstein's My Favorite Things and E.T.A Hoffman's The Nutcracker, adapted by Janet Schulman. She lives in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, with her husband and two children.

I bought this for my 7 year-old daughter for Christmas. She really liked the dolls, and we thought the backgrounds and the pockets for the dolls were great. The only problem is that even though the dolls are punch-outs, the clothes have to be cut out very precisely with scissors, so she needed a lot of help with that.

I am a collector of paper dolls (mostly Tom Tierney) since childhood and a big fan of the Little House series of books. So it made great sense for a relative to gift my 4 year-old daughter with the first three books of the series and these paper dolls. I put both aside until just this month, when my daughter turned 5. We just finished The Little House in the Big Woods by reading a chapter every night before bed. As a reward, I pulled these dolls out and cut them out for her. If my daughter were more practiced with scissors I would let her cut the clothes out, or at the very least, cut some easy parts. On the spectrum of paper doll difficulty, these rate very low. I would expect a 7 or 8 year old could handle it with no problem.

I feel I must address the complaint of having to cut out the clothes. I have had paper dolls with punch-out clothes, and they rip. Not because the paper quality is worse, though it can be, but because ripping along perforations is fraught with accidents even when ripping a straight line, let alone the frequently intricate curves of paper clothing. Cutting the clothing affords you more control, and makes for smoother, more attractive edges as well.

If you want to present a young child with this set all ready to play with, then settle down on the couch watching TV and you'll knock it out pretty quickly. First, remove the dolls and clothes from the cover of the book, which conveniently serves as a storage folder for the finished dolls. I cut out the items but left all the description boxes of the upper left corners of the items pages. You could just remove the pages altogether, but I like to preserve the "story."

Punch out the perforated dolls, then cut _around_ each item of clothing and accessory.

I gave this to my granddaughter on her 5th birthday. Her mother had already been reading her the primary Little House books. She was a big fan of them so she was thrilled to get the paper dolls so she could act out some of the stories she had been hearing.

This probably wouldn't be much fun for a kid who had not heard the Little House stories or a kid who has no imagination. But for my granddaughter, it was the perfect gift!

I'm not sure why the description says "easy to remove" clothes, because I had to cut everything except the dolls out. Maybe they meant easy to remove from the dolls, or maybe I just got a bad lot! But I had no idea I was going to have to cut everything out in order to use it! My hand is hurting! It's a cute set but also a little flimsy (while punching out the dolls a couple of them tore on the tabs).

The paper dolls were a hit with my 4 year old granddaughter. After reading several of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, she knew the characters and was able to re-enact the stories. The story content helped her play. It was good wholesome fun. She needed help cutting out the outfits as they did not punch out like the characters did. The backdrop for life in- the- cabin and turning it around for the backwoods setting was helpful for imagination to go to work. The heavy paper stands for the dolls are substantial. The theme of Laura Ingalls Wilder was refreshing to the Princess paper dolls that she had been playing with.

My 6 year old (now 7) was completely immersed in these. She had so much fun. The only issue I can see being a "reason not to purchase" is that the dresses/clothing and some of the accessories are not pre-punched. Let me just say that as an adult with plenty of small shears for crafts an sewing, I was frustrated cutting out some of these items for her. I finally gave up and let her just do her own thing which worke for us. I am not going to expect her to cut them out perfectly and she did not expect to be able to. However I could tell that sometimes it frustrated her to not have the dress or bowl or hat just right. Pre-punching these items or making the details a little less refined would be good. Other than that, they helped increase her love for LHotP and I am obsessed from way back so, definately recommend.

These are adorable and such a nice change from Barbies and such. It includes background scenes as well and they are nice and colorful, and printed on a nice, heavy gauge paper so they seem like they will hold up really well to little hands playing with them. I think every little girl needs paper dolls, and they are so hard to find these days, like so many of the good old play things from a couple of decades ago. Good imaginative play value, and no compromising values with the skimpily dressed paper dolls you can find these days. Just adorable for young girls. Nice parent/child bonding time.
