Bono was later elected to U.S. House of Representatives from California’s 44th district in 1993 and died in a ski accident on January 5, 1998.
The Sonny Bono doll comes wearing high waisted bell bottom blue jeans with off centered gold plastic buttons, a black and cream knit shirt, and black plastic boots with no socks. The doll click bends at the knees and elbows; shoulders and hips joints go back and forth; head moves side to side; and wrists are jointed. The doll body is two parts that separate at the waist and are connected with a ball joint and inner band that enable it to move in any direction. Unfortunately the snap on the jeans pops open whenever the doll is anything but straight.
