Have you ever heard of The Ginghams Paper Dolls? They were very popular years ago and many women have fond memories of playing with them as a girl. I happened across a free download of these adorable paper dolls.
I’ve already decided that I’m not showing Ginghams Paper Dolls to Caroline until we get all the furniture, dolls, and some of the clothes cut out. David will have to do all the cutting so I need to give him time to get some of it done while she’s in bed. But I know she will love it.
Caroline has been playing with her Little House on the Prairie Paper Dolls quite a bit lately and it has been fun to watch her enjoying the Ingalls family. I’m sure she will enjoy having some new paper friends to play with as well.
If you would like to check this out, this link will take you to The Ginghams Paper Dolls Book in PDF format. (This is not my PDF and I have no control over it.)
I also found another set someone had posted online and featured them in The Ginghams Visit Grandma. That post has a link to another set of the paper dolls in a different theme.
More Paper Dolls For Girls
If your daughter or grand-daughter loves paper dolls, here are a number of other sets!
These are so cute!! I actually got that little surge of joy at seeing the outfits that I remember feeling as a child!! I had completely forgotten that feeling at 52…the same feeling I got when seeing a brand new large box of Crayolas coming my way!!! I may print them off for my neices .Thanks Karen
I want to print some out for myself 🙂
How do I print the Gingham paper dolls?D
I would be so happy if could have this.
Look up Retro Reprints on Facebook or http://www.retroreprints.com – they may have Gingham Girls coloring books.
Wow! I had these growing up! I had completely forgotten them. I ABSOLUTELY loved them!! Thanks for a great memory that I can share with my little one! 🙂
I had a coloring book with these girls in it, when I was about 6. I loved that coloring book, and colored every single page, in order. 😀
Having a girl is a great excuse for revisiting your childhood. 🙂
Oh, I love these!!! My grandma bought me these paper dolls the year before she died. 🙂
Many thanks for this lovely gift. I grew up with The Ginghams paper dolls! I loved these dolls. My grandma brought “Visiting Grandma” from the USA when I was a child. That was amazing for me. Now I have the opportunity to share it with my daughter. Great!
You are welcome, Maria. I hope you and your daughter enjoy them!
May I please print out the gingham paperdolls too? I’m not sure if there is a link. I cannot seem to find it. My mother bought me these when I was a child and oh how I loved them. I would like to share them with my daughter if possible.
I don’t have any control over the PDFs. I am only linking to what someone else has uploaded online. I just checked and it looks like they are still there. It says on their webpage you can click to open the PDFs in full page size and then print.
I hope that helps!
Oh I love this so much – such a sweet thing for my girls I’m sure they would love them! Thanks so much for sharing this!
You are very welcome! I thought they were the cutest thing when I found them and wanted to make sure other people knew about them as well.
I printed these lovely dolls for my daughters last year, and now they are looking to replace some of the ripped ones, and your link isn’t working! If you could fix it, you would have four happy girls!
Many thanks to you.
It looks like either the site hosting them is not working or is gone. I tried both sets from both of my posts. Maybe try again tomorrow?
The other option is to do a Google search of images, find the ones you need, and try to print them off. I’m not sure about the sizes matching up though. You might have to tinker with your printer settings to get them right.
When I clicked it, it said “THIS PAGE IS NOT AVAILABLE.” why?
I’m not sure why it is no longer working. I don’t own the other site. I just linked to it because I knew it would interest my readers. 🙂
I found a new link that is working!
Great! These dolls are still my girls’ favourites! Thanks for updating!
You’re welcome! I was thinking of deleting the post since the link hadn’t worked in some time, but thankfully I was able to find an updated one.
So happy to hear your girls are still enjoying them. 🙂
Hi love the Gingham Girls! Are you able to find their coloring book?! Would love to buy or download their coloring pages! They were so lovely!
Thank you for your time
I didn’t know there were coloring books! That sound neat. I only happened across the paper dolls a number of years ago and shared the link. If you happen to find them, please do share the link here!
I can only find a picture of the front of the Gingham Girls Coloring books on Pinterest. I’ve never seen the inside individual pages. Oh how I wish I had saved my Gingham girls coloring books from when I was little!
I have enjoyed the information so much …..as I had lots of paper dolls and clothing when young, but would love to get some paper books tht will be enjoyed with girls and myself.

Several years ago I came across your post and was able to print out the gingham paper dolls. I used them for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes…I cut out the dolls and left the clothes for the recipient to cut with the scissors I provided. I don’t know if the little girls the boxes went to were able to use them or not, but the cutting and arranging, even using a razor blade to cut dotted lines on the hats was such therapy for me.
Sometime later, like in your other comments, I could no longer find and print the dolls and clothes. Had tried a couple of items but the sizes didn’t print correctly and I’m didn’t know how to adjust the size.
I’m looking now for the new link but don’t see it. Could you send it again?
From a very appreciative 72 year old grandmother who remembers years of cutting and playing with paper dolls. 🙂 Sue

Well, I’m obviously over the hill at 72. The website it clearly marked at the beginning. I was clicking on the image of the book. So sorry for the misinformation. 🙂 Sue
I’m glad you were able to find the link. I’ve overlooked things right in front of me as well. Part of being human! LOL!
Goodness! What a load of memories this brings back. Thank you so much for sharing these with us. I look forward to cutting them out and creating some shadowboxes with them.
My mother use to draw the dolls and clothes for my girl friends and myself then we cut them out and had a lot of fun.My mother was a good artist.sure brings back some good minorities.I think I will cut some out and send them to my great granddaughters.Thank you Sally
