Jem and the Holograms were a band who looked quite punky but weren't at all! They came with a tape to play along, and they had electric guitars and fluorescent hair. Their rival band were The Misfits, and they also had a TV programme. They were bigger than Barbies and Sindys, but not as popular!
Jem Dolls were released in 1985 by Hasbro following the airing of the original cartoon series based on a MTV rock band of the 80s.
The original Jem came with different outfits so she could also be dressed as Jerrica. There were a few different Jem dolls available including Flash n Sizzle Jem, Glitter n Gold Jem and Rock n Curl Jem.
There were several other dolls in the Jem series including the handsome, Barry Manilow look-a-like Rock n Gold Rio and other members of the Holograms including Aja, Kimber, Raya and Shana.
