BARRIE "The Bird Boy" Paper Doll from Betty Cut-Out Series.

May 1924.  Meet BARRIE.  His friends call him "bird boy" because of his love for birds.  One day he was helping to paint the barn when he found a nest with four baby wrens in the eaves of the barn. On another day Barrie and his friend, Billy Cut-Out, took a picnic basket and binoculars and went birding.  His other outfit shows him with a bowl of popcorn to feed to the birds in his yard.  I hope you like this BARRIE paper doll as he joins the others from the BETTY CUT-OUT Series.
