Humans, especially children, find it easy to animate the objects in their lives. In the world of childhood dolls talk, teddy bears cry and stuffed dogs need walks and treats. Indeed, such play inspires imagination and empathy in a way that a television or computer never could. Paper dolls achieve, for those who love them, a remarkably vivid reality despite their two-dimensionality. Here,a set of paper dolls from the fifties are reproduced with the delightful theme of a ballet school. The set includes four dolls, two lovely ballerinas and their two handsome consorts. Each have extensive wardrobes and are folded into the lovely Ecole de Ballet, which features curled balcony railings, shuttered windows and flowering plants.
