The Doll
This 11.5" poseable doll is the first Wonder Woman doll produced and formed part of Ideal's 1967 Comic Heroines (aka Super Queens) line that included Supergirl, Batgirl and Mera, Queen of Atlantis (Aquaman's wife). Ideal used their popular Misty doll as the basis for all four characters, each featuring side glancing eyes and rooted hair (dark brown for Wonder Woman). Included with the Wonder Woman doll was a secret identity Diana Prince nurse outfit and shield (the same used for Ideal's Captain Action doll).

The Costume
The removable cloth costume accurately matches that of Wonder Woman's comic book costume during that era, with the exception of the item not containing bracelets and the use of Captain America's shield. Despite knee-high boots being shown all over the packaging red high-heeled shoes were used with plastic attachments to form the roman sandal look. Ideal produced red knee-high boots for the Supergirl doll in this line, so it is unknown why they did not use these for the Wonder Woman doll. Unfortunately a golden lasso was not included as an accessory nor were Wonder Woman's bracelets. The white nurses costume features a nametag that reads D. Prince and comes with a white hat (with a red cross), white glasses, white high heeled shoes and apparently came with a clipboard.

The Packaging
The side panel of the packaging features a three-scene comic book style illustration. The first scene shows Diana Prince in a hospital room (in Nurse costume, with clipboard) noticing a young girl falling from the balcony of a building next door with a text bubble that reads I must save that falling child. The second scene shows Diana changing into Wonder Woman with a thought bubble which reads With a fast change to Wonder Woman. The last scene shows Wonder Woman catching the child in her arms saying Thank heavens I was in time! The inside of the box features monochromatic line art illustrations depicting a number of action scenes. One shows Wonder Woman lassoing three men with cityscape background. The three other scenes show Wonder Woman swinging from her lasso attached to the invisible jet, carrying an unconcious man and another throwing her lasso.

The Advertisements
An early promotional photo of the dolls show Wonder Woman holding Mera's accessory - a trident spear. This was later removed from the official advertisement. In the advertisement Wonder Woman appears to be wearing bracelets that resemble those from the comic book.
