Product Details

Description:
The first one was GF101 "Animals Around the World" in 1955 and the last one published was GF238 "Mary Poppins" in 1964. It's because of this history that I list all of these books under the "Golden" title since they can be found easier.

Additional Product Information

"Doll House" is a rare Golden Funtime Book, is #GF142 and was published in 1959.  In much simpler times, before children had their noses glued to a phone, this was the sort of entertainment that was enjoyed.  There are 6 pages done on heavy cardstock to punch out and create a model of a 1950s home complete with furniture and family.  Both covers are to be punched too, so that's included in the 6 pages.  The only flaws to mention are some storage wear on the covers and there is only one staple holding the inner pages in the cover.  Photos take you straight through the book, front to back. It measures 13" x 7.5".  The Giant or Golden Funtime books are difficult to find, are highly collectible and easily stored.

The publishing history for the Funtime Books was very diverse but the serial numbers remained consistent and in order no matter who did the publishing.  The first one was GF101 "Animals Around the World" in 1955 and the last one published was GF238 "Mary Poppins" in 1964.  They were called Giant Funtime Books until1958 and then became the Golden Funtime Books from there on.  All of them had the same measurements and format.  It's because of this history that I list all of these books under the "Golden" title since they can be found easier.

Please see photos for content and condition. All of the paper dolls that I offer are from estates and from other homes.  I don't know the previous storage history.  My collection is kept in a smoke/pet free area of my home with a dehumidifier running 24/7.  I have a poor sense of smell at my age and am unable to detect odors.  People smoked way back when, so that could linger and I would not be aware of it.  I try and list all of the flaws with any paper dolls that I sell.

Please, Pay Pal   only and I only ship to the continental US.
