Illustrated patterns for Victorian Dolls and Toys

Illustrated patterns for Victorian Dolls and Toys
This entry is part 6 of 19 in the series The Delineator - January 1892

These two pages of ads from the winter holiday issue of the Delineator are incredibly informative about the kinds of toys and dolls that children in the Victorian era used to play with. The dolls were little miniatures of adult fashions, and the stuffed animal patterns illustrated here seemed to be really true to life. What great gift ideas for the 1890s lady with children to give Christmas presents to!

The stuffed animals pattern advertisement reads: “On this page are illustrated patterns for Animals, which when made up in counterfeit presentment of real horsies, doggies, etc., are a source of much pleasure for little folks, to whom they are especially appropriate gifts at this season of the year…”.
