EF #15: Paper Doll

I was so obsessed with paper dolls back then when I was in elementry school. I collected lots of them and group them into different colors or types of attire.

I always imagined that one day I could have those clothes and wore them to the parties. However, the obsession to paper dolls made me lazy and my mom got upset so one day she threw all my paper dolls. I remember how mad I was at that time that I hide under the bed crying the whole day there. Lol πŸ™‚

One thing that I won’t forget when playing paper dolls, we play pretend and had so much fun doing lots of silly conversation. Building a house for the dolls, decorate the living room, made a bed from the ciggarette’s box and many more…. It was so much fun!

Anyway, I played outdoor too. I was a cheeky monkey who loved and really good in climbing a tree. Lots of trees infront of our house in Binjai before. Never I will forget a year of my childhood spent in Sianjur Mula-Mula where I explore the hills and picking so many beautiful flowers! Hunting the fallen candlenuts and played the candlenuts with the boys. I love the games we had before.

Nowadays, kids and even babies are given gadgets. Poor them that they never experience the real childhood games. I try as much as possible not to give my kids any gadget. Well, sometimes I let them play too but so rarely. I let them play their toys like blocks,dolls, cars, coloring books, etc. I introduced them to outdoor play too. I wish to have a house with a big backyard so my kids will play lots of outdoor games, but as we know that even a very small house in Jakarta is very expensive….

  1. dulu ngetop banget ya paper doll gitu. sekarnag kadang masih ada liat juga di toko2 tapi kayaknya anak2 lebih mainnya yang digital di ipad. hahaha

  2. Hahaha… Is this a kind of “bongkar pasang” mbak Jo? I used to play a paper craft when I was a child. Maybe a little bit different. But, as far as I know, basically, paper toys is cheaper than any plastic or metal toys. That’s what I like the most. πŸ˜€

  3. Waaah.. mainan itu dulu banyak di jual sama abang-abang di depan SD-ku. Dulu temen-temenku yg cewek pada suka mainan itu. Dan kayaknya emang menarik, ya. Bisa ganti-ganti baju sesuka hati. Harganya murah lagi, sangat terjangkau oleh anak SD πŸ˜€

  4. I remember ypur post about hometown which had been used by Mbak Dee for her novel, and I could infer that your hometown must be splendidly beautiful, Mbak :)).
    And for the toy, I remember my sister also cherished her paper doll so much. I, too, sometimes has been dragged by her to come and play this toy :haha. They don’t have male characters on it, as long as I could remember.

  5. Menyenangkan ya mba Jo.. Main BP ini.. Apalagi kalau gambarnya cantik macam di komik2.. Bela2-in kepalanya nyaris putus ditempel pakai isolasi..

    Salam kenal ya mbaa.. *bekunjung balik*

  6. Jo… koleksiku BANYAAAAAK sekali waktu kecil. Terus di belakang bonekanya aku tulisin namanya, biar nggak lupa. Jadi ingat, dulu seneng banget waktu dibelikan lemari buat di kamar, dijadikan ‘kota’ waktu main boneka kertasnya πŸ˜€

  7. mainanku juga ini Jooo, dulu nunggu jajanan buat beli ini. Aku paling suka dulu yang seri purti dan ratu, inget gak yang bajunya kembang kembang dan rambutnya keriwil keriwil. Ihik bener banget tuh yang kalo putus kepalanya sangking seringnya kita ganti bajunya, diselotip ahahahahaha

    • Semua anak cewek dulu main bp ini kayaknya ya. Iya iya yg seri ratu bajunya kembangggg….. omg!!! Kumassukan koleksi bp ini di dlm kaleng bekas kue taon baru..lol

  8. Bongkar Pasang ini memang ngehits ya Jo, selain murah, bikin ketagihan juga bikin imajinasi bocah tinggi (masih cenderung positip sih menurutku). Sekarang bocah mungkin lebih milih main The SIM City ya..ishh, menyenangkan sekali generasi 90 yaa😘😘

  9. iyaaa, bongkar pasang, dulu pas kecil saya juga suka main beginian, suka kalau dapat baju pesta ala Barbie…:p :p :p

  10. Kalok di sini namanya towok-an, Kak Jo.. Hahah.. πŸ˜€ Iss uda lama kali aku ngga nampak permainan ini lah. Dulu masih kecil kali, jadi belom pande maennya. πŸ˜›
