Over the last couple years Hanna has pretty regularly received sets of magnetic “paper dolls”. I was thrilled to see them the first time because they were so cool! They really are like paper dolls, but they are wood and magnetic, so they are much more durable. She’s gotten a Daisy Girls dress up set [...]
