This wonderful paper doll came from the same toy store as the roller skates that we featured earlier in the week. Again, it’s what they call ‘new-old stock’, in that it’s never been used. The box is a little tatty, although not terribly so, but old Gary, sitting inside the box, is just perfect! I haven’t tried out the ‘wand’ yet, so am not sure if the clothes with magically stick to his naked bod, but I suppose it’s more the novelty of finding a vintage paper doll in such perfect condition – it would almost be a shame to play with him, although I really hope someone does! If the wand doesn’t work you can always stick Gary’s clothe son with a bit of prestik!
P.S. Gary was manufactured by Spears, the same people responsible for vintage Scrabble sets – new Scrabble boards are made by Mattel
Dimensions: Box measures 36cm long x 23cm wide x 3cm deep
