The Flying Nun was made by Hasbro in 1966.
|I had to use some editing, but it still only got this blue, and then the doll was darkened so much it still didn't work!|
She looked like this in her box..
|Bends and twists at the waist?Well, twists maybe.There is a waist joint,as well as the normal neck, shoulder,and hip joints.|
|The back of her box looked like this.|
|In fact, this one could be her twin.|
|No rosary though.|
She came wearing her nun's habit,with a belt that snapped,and her cornet,the large hat that allowed the Flying Nun to fly.
She's pretty TV accurate,(And pretty dirty.Geez!),except for her short hair. Sister Bertrille,the Flying Nun in the TV series. had her hair up in her cornet.
Her legs and feet were made of black plastic, to save on shoes and stockings.
As you can see, my doll is missing a leg. I have no idea what ever happened to it. It was an accident that happened a LONG time ago.
I actually lost my cornet too. I imagine it wasn't on her head so my mom threw it away. That was a frequent occurrence with loose toy bits around our house. I spotted this one online in a lot with some Tutti items and nabbed it for a good price.
|She also has white cotton undies, but let's leave her her dignity.|
The Dolly Darlings were overseen by G.I. Joe creator Donald Levine. In 2014 a lot of prototype Dolly Darlings from his estate was sold. It included this prototype Flying Nun.
|She's marked Hasbro on her back.|
|"I did not say 'You like me! You really like me'!"|
Here's one last picture of today's girl.
