Brilliant! BTW, I had the same problem with the magnets lining up too, when I made some of these. They'll be a lot of fun to play with on the refrigerator.

My daughter (6yo) and I made some of these a few months ago. We had the same problem with the magnets polarity, and the fact that the magnets on the clothes were not strong enough to hold over the magnetic bodies on my daughters (sheet metal) magnet board.

Our solution was to print the people out, send them through the sticker machine, and stick them on scenes cut out of magazines and old books. The pages are held on the magnet board with regular magnets in the corners, then the clothes can be placed over the dolls. Not very travel friendly, as the pages are full size, but if we make more, we will look for smaller scenes.

Makes me wonder if a person could make a book of scenes and have a pouch of clothes... Off to see what I can come up with.
