Deluxe Reading took the perennially popular bride doll to the next level with this unusual doll. Not only does she "walk" down the aisle, but she "throws" her bouquet as well!

Body Construction
Bonnie Bride is a 21" doll with a hollow rigid vinyl body and legs, and softer vinyl head and arms. She has blue sleep eyes with brush lashes, and painted lashes below each eye. Her brunette hair is in a short bob style. She is jointed at the shoulders, neck and hips. Her right hand has a hole in it to hold her bouquet. Bonnie's most remarkable feature is a mechanism, consisting of a metal lever in her back connected to her right arm, that enables her to "throw" her bouquet.

Markings
She is marked "21HH K61" on the back of her head below the hairline.

Clothing
Bonnie wears a long sleeved satin bridal gown with lace and pearl appliqués and a bow at the waistline; matching bridal cap with fingertip tulle veil; a hooped underskirt; white panties; white plastic heels; and her bridal bouquet. Her dress is not tagged.

Packaging
Bonnie comes packaged in a cardboard box with colorful graphics. See photos of her box above. She comes complete with a white plastic mechanical stand. When you pull back on the lever, the wheels turn and propel her forward.
