Thread: Paper Doll-Type Toy from late 80's (or early 90's)

    This site has helped me find SO many things I'd had trouble remembering from my childhood, but there's one I still can't place. It would have been the late 80's (or possibly early 90's). Basically, you made clothes out of a play-doh (but I don't think it was Play-Doh brand) and stuck them to flat, plastic dolls. It was like paper dolls with Play-Doh. I believe there were also little hangers you could put the clothes on. The dolls, like I said, were flat and plastic (but a little puffy...kind of like those puffy stickers) and couldn't stand on their own.

    I may be a little fuzzy or wrong on some of these details, but that's all I can remember. I've been trying to figure this out for so long. For some reason I think the name may have began with a 'C', but that could be very wrong. I'd appreciate any help or ideas!

    I remember one like that fom a TV commercial but you made her clothes out of weird stuff that you put into moulds and then you put them in this little oven thing kind of like Creepy Crawlers.

    I posted this almost 4 years ago, but had to update it. I finally found this toy! It was a Tyco Super Dough playset called "Fashion Place." I still can't find much more information or pictures, but I'm happy to solve the mystery. Would love to hear if anyone else remembers it! Thanks for your help

    Pleasant Company had the exact same thing but you use the foldable tabs to attach them to flat, plastic dolls. Here is a picture of one of the paper dolls (American Girl brand only). These came out in the late 80s (or early 90s) but were retired by Mattel a few years later. To receive the flat, plastic dolls, customers have to call American Girl using the phone number (1-800-845-0005), visit [url=]American Girl[/url] or subscribe to American Girl magazine.
