    Donald Duck and Clara Cluck Cut-Out Book (Whitman, 1937). Perhaps the greatest of all the Disney Cut-Out books is the 1937 Whitman Publishing Company's Donald Duck and Clara Cluck Cut-Out Book. In reality, it was a paper doll book, but Whitman obviously carefully avoided that term in order not to alienate young male consumers. The oversized book covers had perforated die cut figures of Donald Duck in one half, and Clara Cluck in the other, ready to punch out and dress in cut-out fashions from the book's interior pages. Complete, uncut copies of this book are now virtually non-existent. As you can readily see, vintage Cut-Outs are among the most fun and gratifying of all Disney toys to collect. Finding nice examples of these made-for-kids-to-destroy paper toys takes years of patience and perseverance. But once you do acquire an uncut item, you really have to fight the temptation to get out the scissors and paste and put these fun things together, just like the publishers intended. Measures 13.25" x 18.25". In Very Fine condition. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
