While typing a post about paper dolls I got the song made famous back in the 70′s by Marie Osmond “Paper Roses” I haven’t heard this song in so long, so I turned to YouTube.com and had no trouble finding this beautiful song and wanted to share it here while I was at it.
I wonder how long this song will stick in my head. Some times a song will last a week or so. That’s way too long for anything to be bouncing around inside my head! LOL
Something that I haven’t seen in so long are the paper dolls that were so popular back in the day before computers. I remember about 15 years ago I was going over to babysit my niece so I stopped off at Toys R Us and I bought my niece, who was about 7 or 8 at the time, some paper dolls thinking it would be a fun thing for the two of us to do that afternoon. She wasn’t impressed, nor was I. What a pain in the rear they turned out to be. It was a real struggle to get the things punched out, most of them ended up torn and bent up and the darn clothes wouldn’t stay on the paper dolls worth a darn, so we ended up trashing those after 20 minutes of frustration.
Now a days they have so many cool virtual girl games to offer young girls that make the old fashioned paper dolls really look out dated and boring. The computer makes the whole process less tedious and totally more exciting and I can see why the market has dropped out of the paper doll industry. It took a while for them to figure out that the need for more virtual girl games were a big issue and we are finally seeing a good amount of virtual girl games coming out and the girls are just eating them up as fast as they can produce them.
