The poor Princess. We scoured eBay looking for her lost hairdo but can’t seem to find it. It would seem that most of the original Kenner 12-inch Princess Leia dolls (which ironically came packaged with a comb) have endured a perpetual streak of bad hair days since December 26, 1978, when little girls (or little boys, and you know who you are) were motivated to loosen the buns and let her hair down. Unfortunately, few Leias have ever regained the difficult-to-restore hairmuffs, giving many-a-princess a forever frazzled look.
There’s of course also the issue of the Princess’ modesty being compromised on eBay, but that’s a fight for another day.
