Early paper dolls came in books, boxes, folders, magazines, newspapers, and advertisements. By the 1920s and 1930s, most paper dolls came in a book with the doll figures on the cardboard covers and the clothing on the paper pages within. Such paper doll books sold for just five cents or a dime, even during the Great Depression. The Velva Doll here was a little more elaborate. The dresses for this doll did not have the little paper tabs; rather the doll figure's torso is covered with flocking to which the dresses cling.
