*** “Dollars of Delight for a Dime. Watch for a NEW TOY - a NEW THRILL Every Time!” is The Dime Line company’s catchy slogan on the stunningly lithographed exterior packaging for this nostalgically charming “big 24-piece set” vintage paper toy kit, which cost a whopping 10¢ back in the day.

*All 24 “paper doll people, animal and building structures” components of this set remain in near mint condition, with crisp lithographed graphics retaining coloration as vividly bright as when this set was brand new, and exhibiting no paper nicks or tears. All pieces are still attached to the original card, with only a piece or two beginning to partially “pop up”/separate from the card as a whole.
*Exterior packaging is in very good condition, with equally vibrant coloring to its beautiful lithography. This outer packaging, which is shaped like a “manila” vs. “letter” envelope, was not sealed closed at the time of our acquisition of this marvelous item, thus providing us the opportunity by which to thoroughly examine it and photograph it for your purchasing consideration.
