Huggable warrior of the cross.
Soft Saints, Inc., purveyor of positive role models for
today's youth in the form of plush dolls, makes it possible to
cuddle with a 15th-century purveyor of divine wisdom--the "Maid of
Orleans," Joan of Arc. "Made of soft, pliable leather-like
fabric," states the promotional material, "her suit of armor keeps with our concept of soft and huggable."
It's hard to tell that it's not the actual warrior-saint,
as this doll appears to be highly flammable. Joan has a molded rubber
head with hand-painted features and "wonderfully relevant
accessories." Unfortunately, she doesn't come with a
preinstalled digitized Voice of God summoning you to rescue France. The
dolls are crafted by really nice women in California as an
"American-made labor of love."
