Doll News Summer 2015 - (Page 152)

W by Gael Shults hat a surprise! My mother had been given a subscription to McCall's magazine and I was delighted to discover an adorable, stylish paper doll tucked away in the back pages. I was allowed to cut out Betsy McCall, but only after Mom and her friends had read the magazine cover to cover. Sometimes when she shared with the neighbors I would have to be very patient, but other times she would carefully cut the paper doll page out of the magazine so I could play with it right away. I was around seven years old when I began my mailbox vigil. Once Betsy had made her initial appearance it wasn't too difficult to figure out when her next issue would arrive. After walking home from school I would stop to peek into the mailbox. Once every month my due diligence was rewarded and over the course of the year I acquired a wonderful collection of Betsy friends, family and their various wardrobe items. NOTE: You don't have to cut up your Doll News! These pages can be printed out at 152 SUMMER 2015
