Meet Star Princess and her cyborg companion Pluta!
Spaceplay for girls
This 1979 paper doll ‘playbook’ is one of only a few ”Star Princess and Pluta” items produced by Whitman’s . I can’t quite call it a series – to my knowledge there were only a set of paper dolls, a colouring book and this. Copyright was applied for in 1980 and cancelled in 1988. Maybe the similarity to Star Wars was slightly too obvious? Pluta does look like an emaciated robot Princess Leia!
Nevertheless, a space play for girls is to be applauded. The fashion is suitably ‘far-out’:
but planet and command centre have been given equal attention – not just Star Wars, Star Trek comes to mind, too.
Have a lovely time whichever planet you’re on!
