Mid-century "double doll" pop-up featuring a cat figure and a chick figure, accompanied by two "costume books" with clothes for the dolls.
DRESS-UP PUSS AND CHICKY CUT OUTS
The character Chicky can be dressed up to play as Goldilocks, Little Jack Horner, Mother Goose, and more; the character Puss can be turned into a fireman, a policeman, and a cowboy – or a cowgirl (with a skirt rather than pants, but for the same character). An unusual and fun 1950s item.
Chicago: Whitehall Publishing Company, 1950. 6.5'' x 5.75''. Original color pictorial wrappers. Verso of front wrapper with figures that can be folded to "pop up." Two costume books of 6 leaves, folded accordion-style and printed rectos only, tucked in (one for each character). Spine with long closed tear, tender but holding. Booklets and pop-up mechanism fine and intact. Uncut and unusued.
