It’s no secret I love western wear. But a secret I do have is that I have a soft spot for vintage paper dolls. For years I have refrained from purchasing any of these miniature works of art, but when I spied a set featuring western kind and queen, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, I simply couldn’t resist. So, I decided to scan them and share them with you today!
First, I really admire the folder these came in, as it is illustrated to look like tooled leather, and then the back features Trigger and Bullet! And the inside is fantastic as well!
Now if I could just figure out a way to magically have these transform into real clothing for my closet!
I’m not sure if this is finally the beginning of a paper doll collection, or perhaps maybe I’ll only allow myself to collect western themed paper dolls. But I do plan on framing these in some manner so I can enjoy gazing upon them on a regular basis!

OMG. I had this set when I was a kid. So “neat” to see it again! Thanks for posting it
She has some very cute outfits! You should definitely frame these!
I don’t understand how a great set of paperdolls like this one survived without being cut! So perfect!
They didn’t actually! I purchased a piece of scrapbook paper with the woodgrain and placed it behind the pieces when I scanned them so they would have a fitting background. But I am thrilled my choice of paper and scanning was so good looking you thought it was uncut!
I recognize this set. I’m retired and still collecting paper dolls. They are so much fun!
I’m retired and still collecting paper dolls. It’s a fun way to revisit my childhood for a little while.
