Nostalgia

When I was smaller, I had a cool toy called Fashion Plates.

They were pieces of plastic that had clothing outlined on them. You'd put paper over the top, rub it with a pencil, and hey, presto! You had an outline of an outfit, which you could them colour in.

How I loved my Fashion Plates. And apparently other people did too. (Their own set, not mine. I'm good at sharing, but not that good!) I wonder what happened to my set...

OMG, I had never heard of those but now I'm totally jealous I never had them as a kid. I would have loved them. I was so into paper dolls - I made many a paper doll outfit myself!

They do look very cool. My daughter has one of those girl stencils where ou layout different fabrics below her and then place the stencil on top to see the effect of the outfit. Thankyou $2 Shop for a well loved gift.

I've never heard of them. I did have those cardboard dolls with paper cutout clothing though.
