Dolly Dingle, Johnny and the Story of Fido Printable Paper Dolls
Dolly Dingle plays tennis with Johnny. Fido tells a story!
Grace Drayton’s cartoon characters brought joy to many children and their families in the 20th century and now, almost a hundred years later, her drawings are still popular today. Grace and her sisters grew up in Philadelphia. She was a prolific and accomplished artist, belonging to the most prestigious artist circles. She was actively drawing from 1904 until her death in 1936. She is most famous for designing the Campbell’s Kids and Dolly Dingle, although she painted in oils and was a student of Robert Henri.
Throughout the 1920s, Dolly Dingle, her pets and friends were shown doing many activities. If you think of the Great Gatsby and what those characters were doing in their leisure time during he Roaring Twenties, Dolly Dingle could do them all. She played golf and tennis. She went skiing and snow shoeing. She “sang” opera and even performed in Gilbert & Sullivan’s popular operettas. The Dolly Dingle paper dolls were very talented and life experienced. So, here she plays tennis with her friend Johnny and dog named Fido, who has his own clothes to wear and story to tell.
