Wigged Paperdoll ???

I wish I could share photos of the paperdoll I had as a girl in the mid 1950s. I've never seen another one like it.

The doll itself was printed on very heavy cardboard with a plastic stand to insert the feet. Both front and back were printed.

There was a magnet inside the doll. The clothes had no tabs; there were small magnets to be taped to each outfit. Each outfit was printed on both the front and back. I can't remember if they were attached at the shoulders or not.

But the most unusual aspect of this doll is that she had a full glued-on wig. Although it was a bit flattened, it was wavy in the front and back.

Has anyone else seen a paperdoll like this and know what it was?
