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'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.
