About the Author

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. She and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Later, Laura and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There, believing in the importance of knowing where you began in order to appreciate how far you've come, Laura wrote about her childhood growing up on the American frontier. For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.



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.

More About the Author

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in the Wisconsin woods in 1867. She wrote the Little House books based on her own experiences growing up on the Western frontier. Just like the characters in her stories, Laura and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest and experienced many of the same adventures. She finally settled down in Mansfield, Missouri with her husband, Almanzo, where she lived until her death in 1957.

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.

The Big Woods Collection of My Book of Little House Paper Dolls is a charming and endearing set of paper dolls and props. You can either be inside the log cabin or outdoors in view of it. Either way, it will provide an afternoon of delight for any little girl

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.

Very cute. My granddaughter liked them very much. sShe'd never seen paper dolls before. A welcome change from all the techno / video / game-boy "stuff" for kids. Allows for a little imagination to be experienced.

I love this kit. I actually bought it for my 8 year old. I am a huge Laura Ingalls fan and so to me, this was just the perfect item to buy! My kids and I had fun cutting out the dolls and dresses. (You cannot punch these out, so it takes time). It's printed on nice, smooth paper. And the colors are delightful. We love to act out scenes. The kit provides an indoor set and an outdoor set. Really great buy!
