Jem was a "TRULY OUTRAGEOUS" Rock Star cartoon
character of the 80's. She was the leader of a band called the Holograms who was changed
from mild mannered Jerrica to the wild pink haired Jem with the aid of a holographic
image. Jerrica was turned into Jem to help save the orphanage that Jerrica's father had
left her. The Holograms also had a rival band called the Misfits, they were always trying
to foul things up for Jem and the Holograms. The dolls were released by Hasbro to coincide
with the cartoon series. The dolls have wonderful poseable bodies with jointed wrists,
waists, and legs that can bend and be crossed!!! The dolls are no longer available in
stores, but can readily be found on the secondary market. All of the dolls sport wild
colored hair and make up, the are a wild bunch, and a lot of fun!!!
