It seems the little girl Dolly Dingle must have had adult siblings, for this is her nephew:
I post this on behalf of “Miss Missy” who ask about this picture here.
I just realized that I only posted this guy on my Afrikaans blog, never here. I think it is the cutest one I ever drew – it is unlikely one of my works will ever find itself in a magazine , but I would have loved if this one (or who am I kidding, any other one) ever did.
This is a yellowed page from a magazine called National Doll World: Read the rest of this entry »
Here is a paper toy from this week’s Huisgenoot:
I AM A BELIEBER, with below that instructions to make a mask.
Sharon from Sharon’s Sunlit memories was pleased to see that my previous entry contained something from Huisgenoot, a magazine she encountered as a child in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe, nowadays). Here is the only other Huisgenoot item I have that is related to this blog’s topic.
From very old dolls to a new one: “Liefste Kayla” is a current series on South African TV. Local magazine Huisgenoot had a Kayla doll on a strip of card about 2 months ago, and a promise of a bit of clothing every week. The clothes are still appearing in every new Huisgenoot.
These dolls have the names Rose and June hand-written on the back. I think they are probably from the 1940s or 1950s.
I have no idea how old this large (36 x 42,5 cm) sheet is. If it is as old as the clothing suggests, these are my oldest dolls by far. But somehow, I do not think it is that old, as it is not yellowed at all. If anyone can tell me more about these dolls, it will be greatly appreciated.
