I was born in 1940. My favorite toys were paper dolls and doll houses. I loved the Katy Keene paper dolls-such beatiful clothes. I f Barbies had been around then, I would have loved them. I never cared for baby dolls- I remember my mother made me a doll one year. It was a baby doll-she didn't put much stuffing in the neck, so I had to hold her neck like you would a real baby-didn't like haveing to do that-lol. That probably leads to this question- yes, I had children later and loved raising them as babies! In the early school grades, we girls would play jacks at recess and it got to be quite an art.
