Collection Item Summary:
This “NASA Space Crew" doll set includes a doll and accessories in a play backpack. Together, the toys allow the owner to play with a blonde doll representing an astronaut figure from the Space Shuttle Program era. The set includes a doll modeled on the looks and dimensions of another well-known girls' plaything as well as a suitcase and blue flight suit.
Toys like this one represent the many ways that children could learn about the Space Shuttle Program through play. The label has the official NASA emblem as well as photos of an orbiter in space and the profile of the Hubble Space Telescope.
