Busy Bee Paper Doll

In 1891, Maurine Campbell organized the "Busy Bees," a group of children who helped raise money to furnish The Mother Church. This paper doll and her dresses are based on one of products the children created to raise money.

This paper doll and her dresses are reproduced from Longyear Museum's collection. They are part of a scrapbook compiled by Maurine Campbell. In March 1891, each of the Busy Bees was given a new silver dime to use in raising money for his or her contribution. It is reported that a twin brother and sister went into partnership and devoted every spare moment to making and selling paperdolls and wardrobes.

Package includes: one doll, three dresses, and one pattern for creating your own dress.
