Meet the "first female robot," Susie Robette, from 1957. An FAO Schwartz catalog at the time promised the Robette would be "feminine enough to wear a pony tail of coppered wire." You can find more images here, as well as a patent sketch and some catalog pages, the latter of which reveal she was a product of the "Little Lady" toy company. Remember, girls, nothing says robotic fun like housework!
