*Reader Photos* Vintage Spoolie Hair Curlers

Someone in my family saved some vintage Spoolies.  This card calls them Spoolie Hair Curlers with a copyright date of 1949.  I photographed the ones that stayed soft or kept their shape.  They're a little more than an inch high.  I guess AG didn't want to or couldn't do licensing for Maryellen's set, but it would have added to the cuteness if it came with a retro product card.

FYI, the Spoolies website About Us page has a picture of an old card which is different from mine.


  1. I wonder if this was the same pamphlet American girl used? The Beforever sets are my favorite part of collections because of the amount of accuracy that goes into the doll's line. I think that is what makes the company stand out from other doll makers.

  2. OMG, I remember my mom using these curlers for our hair when I was a small child! They made our hair look like we had perms!
