She Sweeps! She Dusts! She's the First Female Robot!

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!
