Description

A classic pastime updated for a new generation. These paper people wear their clothes with the help of reusable, press-on, peel-off adhesive dots — no tabs! And no scissors either — the dolls, clothes and accessories are perforated, ready to pop right out and play. Six reversible paper dolls in a variety of skin colors come with the book, along with three paper babies and a few paper pets. Bunches of reversible clothes, shoes and hairstyles work in combination to make exactly one jillion different outfits. (We counted.) Also includes six beautifully illustrated backdrops and a handy portfolio storage pocket. Our kids, both boys and girls, played with these for hours when they were little.

Contents:
Double-sided, removable adhesive dots, and 34 die-cut pages of dolls and clothes.

About Klutz:
Klutz was incorporated in 1977 in Palo Alto, California, by three friends from Stanford University. They began by selling sidewalk juggling lessons along with a trio of no-bounce bean bags. A week's effort earned the group $35. "It was then we realized the sky was the limit."

John Cassidy, the English major of the group, put the instructions in book form and titled it Juggling for the Complete Klutz. Darrell Lorentzen, the business major, wrote up the original business plan and the other partner, B.C. Rimbeaux, was assigned the task of getting a bank loan. Mr. Rimbeaux was a psychology major.

The first 3,000 books were distributed via bicycle and backpack, and sales grew from there. "It really was a failed scam," explains Cassidy, who remains the creative force of the company. "Our dream was to do a book on juggling, sell a bazillion in a couple of days, buy an island and retire. It didn't work out. After a year of steady, unspectacular sales, we found ourselves staring down the barrel of a career."

Today, how-to books from Klutz come packaged with the tools of their trade (from juggling cubes to face paints to yo-yos), and are designed for doing, not just reading. "We think people learn best through their hands, nose, feet, mouth and ears. Then their eyes. So we design multi-sensory books," Cassidy says.

For those of you who collect corporate mission statements, here's the Klutz credo: Create wonderful things, be good, have fun.
