Etta Kett Paper Doll

Etta Kett Gets New Easter Clothes

Here is Etta Kett, our Paul Robinson cut-out paper doll and some of her new Easter clothes. When Etta joins the Easter parade she may have her choice of the cape dress with its fur collar in the left corner, or the dress at the right with the smart little jacket and fur scarf. This dress, you will see, has two jackets.

CHILDREN — Isn’t this a dandy surprise for you?

Here’s a gift for you from Etta Kett, the sprightly young lady who amuses you and your parents every day in The Berkeley Gazette.

All you need do is cut out this Etta Kett doll and her two costumes, place the costumes on the figure of Etta (bending the dotted flaps back) and, there you are — a dandy paper doll to add to your toys.

Etta is here with three costumes that are right up to the minute in style. She’s wearing a chic bathing suit that’s the rage at southern beaches. Then there’s a very handsome ski suit for winter sports wear. And isn’t that a pretty dress for Etta to wear at parties?

Demand of Fall Sports and Parties Adds to Famous Comic Character’s Wardrobe — Do You Like Her New Togs?

Isn’t Etta Kett the cutest thing in her trick little sports outfit? The tiny suspenders look so well with the polka dotted shirt that every grown-up little girl would love to have one of these outfits.

Mr. Paul Robinson, the Etta Kett artist, has also furnished Etta with a pull-over sweater to wear with this outfit — as you can see by looking in the upper left-hand corner.

Below it is a clever pajama set.

At right is a swanky, long-skirted party dress with coat (above it) to match.
