These days, printable paper dolls are imaginative and popular toys for children of all ages. However, it might surprise you to find out that paper dolls have been a popular and creative toy for around 200 years. Various versions of paper dolls have been around for about as long as paper has existed.

With adaptions in design by different cultures and religious factions around the world, paper dolls have often been a staple for many groups of people. You might also be surprised to know that paper dolls weren't always designed for children, either.

In around the eighteenth century, France created paper dolls that were designed like human "Jumping Jack" puppets. These puppets were actually popular amongst the wealthy and influential individuals at the time.

Nowadays we can simply print out the dolls and clothes, but before printers existed, these dolls and their clothes were intricately designed, cut, and painted. From humans to animals to furniture, no design is off limits in the paper doll world.
