Playscale is used for Barbie and other approx. 12"
adult figures such as vintage GI Joes. It is the correct
scale for 8" dolls that represent children. It's also your best
choice for 15" and bigger dolls like Gene. Most items
will look fine with the larger Genes. This scale also works
well for the 18" American Girl Dolls. We believe "Playscale"
is the most common term for this scale, although it's also very
commonly known as "1:6" and 2 Inch.
This is probably the best size for craft projects like rubber stamping
and tag art although
you'll find a larger selection in the smaller 1" scale section.
We can't make the larger printables in Playscale because
they're too big to print on one page. You can print them in
1" scale and take them to your local photocopy shop. They
should be able to print them at 200% for you.
A Note About American Girl Doll Scale
18" American Girl dolls are 1:3 scale - which is double Playscale. So if you want to print any minis from this site for American Girl dolls, you would need to save them from our Playscale section, and then open them in Word and resize them to twice their size before printing.
