Little Henry

What better paper doll to feature on Labor Day than Little Henry? As you can see from his costumes, he was an industrious lad whose story told of the rewards of hard work and purpose, despite the twists and turns of fortune.

From Garth Lax:

"Little Henry, the famed English Toy Book, first
published by Fuller in 1810. Shown are the figures, hats, the book,
the slipcase, and the rare presentation box. Little Henry won a
Blue Ribbon for Diana Lax in the International, pre-1900 Category."
