Really lovely book and bought as a birthday gift for a spritely 86 year old lady as an alternative to the normal gifts of soap and smellies that she normally receives. Whether she can bear to cut out the paper dolls in this lovely book is another matter!
This made a really quirky gift for a Frida mad 6 year old.
Lovely paper doll book. A little bit different from the usual ones.
Bought this for my granddaughter who loves Kahlo. We also made extra costumes and I put the figures on a wooden slat to make it stand, it reminded me of when I did these with my own daughter years ago
The Frieda pictures and clothes are splendid and the Diego ones not quite what I was expecting but they are amusing and colourful! The quality of the paper and pictures are so gorgeous I’m not sure I can give this away, let alone let a child loose on it with scissors! I will have to content myself looking through it a few times first.
