Who are Captain Bobs playmates?

Here is a paper doll mystery. This is printed on newsprint and there is a fiction story on the back that's no help. I don't have any more clues about Captain Bob, Peggy, Polly or Suzanne. I don't know how old this is, I don't know what the title of the strip was and I don't know what happened at the Vacation Party. Any ideas?
(P.S. You can enlarge the image, print this out and see how Bob looks all dressed up...have fun!)


  1. I don't know the story on this, but I am guessing the date to be the early 1930's. My Dad was born in 1924, and in the pictures we have of him from ages 6-12, he is dressed just like the outfit to the left of the boy, knickers, shirt and sweater vest, or just a sweater with knickers.

  2. This is from a series of paper dolls called Paper Playmates which ran in the paper in 1936 thru 1940s. Some could be older. It had Junior Readers by Dudley Fisher above the cut outs. Hope this helps.
