Singapore Memories Nostalgic kampong paperDolls Peranakan Straits Chinese Nyonya and babas How was your childhood like? Did you play with paper dolls too? Mine was pretty much linked to attap houses in an old kampung hut, where idyllic hours frittered away while I secretly plucked Bunga Telang flowers in the backyard. My late Chor Chor would get crossed with us kids because those precious flowers were not playthings, but her ingredients to be used for her many kuihs. lol! The black and white television would take a year or two before it made its grand entrance with much fanfare. Up till then, all we kids had all the time in the world to play house with our paper dolls. Sometimes, for birthdays and special festivals, we were presented with those fancy ones imported from Japan. Then, there were those that seemed to be mainland Chinese productions which you could bargain for. At the corner provision shop manned by an eagle-eyed aunty, an itchy finger or two often revelled in flipping the heavy stacks. Still, more commonly, on many occasions, after our pockets had been turned inside out, we would search for scraps of paper, and then log out our crayons and paints to create our very own paper dolls. These nyonya paper dolls are pretty life-like figures that you cut out of paper. There are separate clothes and accessories , also made of paper, that are usually held onto the dolls by folding tabs. Paper dolls have been inexpensive children's toys for almost two hundred years. Today, paper dolls have turned into an art form. Hopefully, paper dolls can regain its popularity with our young kids and regain its rightful place as a childhood treasure. Help a child, or that inner child within you, to indulge in the old world charms of the baba Nyonya heritage ...
