I adore paper dolls, probably because I used to hand-draw them for hours as a child, but have to admit that the lovely vintage style paper dolls from French-website and CMP favorite TinyUs is way better than anything I drew. Especially when they can turn your very own child into a doll.
Rather than charging you, say, $10 for the chance to turn your sweetheart into a paper doll, TinyUs just asks you to make a donation, in any amount, to Présence, a school for children with developmental disabilities in the south of France. I felt like I was giving a little Valentine to others by making my donation. In turn, I received one of the cutest Valentines I’ve ever seen.

to imply that we do not like paper dolls from other countries. Except
for one very small one that shall remain nameless. Nope. Not telling. Sorry.
