Here is the original comic strip character that I came to love. Flapper Fanny was the forerunner of Mopsy. The picture above is dated the year I was born so I wasn't into paper dolls yet!
This one is dated 1935 when I would have been about 7 - and she looks like the Mopsy I loved. Give me paper dolls and I was one happy little girl! I remember Gone with the Wind paps, the Royal family when Elizabeth and Margaret Rose were little girls (my birthdate is the same as Margaret Rose), and various and sundry other lovely books to cut up.
Here is Mopsy. Another thing I loved to do was try and draw her - I could do it pretty well.
Now this would be the Mopsy doll as I remember her - ain't she cute? This, however, was one that was published after I had grown out of my paper doll stage. I also loved Brenda Starr but cannot find those dolls on the web. We didn't have much in the way of toys as kids, but when I look way back at my childhood I remember it fondly.
