Color Infusion

March 7th, 2013

(NOTE: There are additional links below each photo to view it against a dark background. I think the photos look better that way.)

I grew up in the 80s and was totally a Jem Girl. My sister and I played with the dolls and watched the cartoon religiously. I even recorded the songs (with a tape deck set up in front of the TV speaker) from the show so that our dolls could put on concerts. :)

Anyway, even though the nostalgia-level was high, I had promised myself that I wouldn't succumb to the temptation of the new line of Jem dolls that Integrity has been releasing. My willpower held strong until I started seeing owner-photos of the Rio dolls. Wow! I think he rivals and surpasses many of the male dolls in Fashion Royalty's Homme line. I wish this is what Rio looked like when I was playing with the original Jem dolls. :XO:

Still, my willpower didn't fully abandon me until I saw the pre-order for Kimber and the rest of the Holograms—my willpower gave up the ghost and I totally caved. I pre-ordered the Holograms and was lucky enough to find Rio, Jem and Synergy. The only doll I didn't get was Jerrica.

Now I feel like having a Jem cartoon marathon and playing with my dolls. ;)

    Now, if dolls looked like this when I was growing up, I would have been hounding my parents to get me one!

    That is one nice looking doll. And I know I may sound a bit uneducated here but I have no idea what a Jem is but they look awful nice!

    Basically, Jem and her friends were 12" fashion dolls created in the 1980s by Hasbro to compete with Barbie. There was even a Jem cartoon show that aired for three seasons. If you're curious, I've linked to a page that goes into a lot more depth. I don't want to bombard you with too much info if you weren't interested. ;)

    Thanks for that link and the explanation. I honestly did not know about these growing up. Knew about Barbie though but I think every kid did.
