The Katie Present

Yes grandparents. It has come in the mail. And as expected, it is a huge hit.
They are my old set of Fashion Plates.
I loved these things as a kid, and had such memories of spending hours making different looking girls and coloring them in with my colored pencils.
So tonight when they came in the mail, I ripped the paper off a crayon, showed Katie how to set up a picture and showed her how to rub the image onto the paper. I think her exact words were "WOW!" And there she sat for the next hour and a half until bed. She made several dolls. Coloring them in and cutting them out like paper dolls. I found her at bedtime playing with them in her room, and she wants a shoe box to store her creations in.
I envision, many more hours of happiness await this toy!

I am so glad I found after I crawled back by the furnace on the toy shelf. I had to stand on my toes and stretch to get them by I was determine to fine them. Just looking at her face fills me with joy. It was worth all the searching. Glad you love them Kate. Love Grandma Cele

I remember I had a set too although I don't think it was as big as the one displayed. It was one of my favorite toys as a young girl too. Thanks for posting. This was a flash from my past and I hope I will remember it when it comes time for Dayna to enjoy the Fashion Plates (hope they have a version of this on Amazon(?)...). Glad you love them too Katie.
