Description: This die-cut, boxed paper doll set, Black is Beautiful, features four girls with big brown eyes. One girl has an Afro; two have short curly hair, and one has straight short hair with bangs. Included are a red magic wand and three sheets of colorful separates (clothing, boots, shoes, jewelry, and other accessories) that reflect 1969 fashion styles. The box reads, “Just touch with the wand and the clothes stay on.” The fashions are actually backed with a sticky substance that adheres to the dolls’ cardboard bodies.
