  • Same face mold as the first Kimber Benton doll, Tomorrow is My Wedding Day Kimber Benton, The Bands Break Up Kimber Benton. 
  • Her hair is much softer and brighter than Integrity's first Kimber Benton.
  • Clash Montgomery uses this mold for all three of her quick switch heads, as does another Integrity character, Blue Burkhart
  • Because it's fun, why not see a photo of the 2012 Kimber beside SMAI Kimber!

    outfit Made up of pieces itemized below. 

    Blazer (Back); Blue with roses design, has white with roses design on lapels, functional pockets and permanently "rolled" up cuffs. Lined with a satiny blue material; tagged 35th Anniversary Jem. The material is a very fine, shiny/reflective weave. Has one reddish plum decorative button in front.

    Bandeau (back); Reddish plum satiny material, lined, has very fine monofilament straps to hold it up. It is tied together in the back like so. Closes in the back with two flat hook and eye (thread) closures.

    Mesh top (back); shiny blue fishnet short sleeved shirt that closes with velcro in the back.

    Pants: harem style (Back): Reddish plum satiny material at waist with four tiny matching decorative buttons; it actually closes in back with flat hook and eye (thread) closures. Made of the same white shiny rose-patterned material as the accents on the jacket.

    Box, liner and inserts not noted in Integrity's box contents above. We have longtime friend of the website Alain Tremblay to thank for designing the Jem packaging, as mentioned in the credits shown on the bottom of these boxes.  Please note, Raya came with Kimber in this package, so there is only one outer package per two-doll set.

    Box: Thick cardboard black satiny finish with a hot pink and pink foil confetti & music notes design on front; sides have the Jem logo & stars also in hot pink /pink foil; the back has a palm tree and spotlight design as well as more musical notes and confetti in hot pink/pink foil. It has Integrity Toys logo in white on both sides and Hasbro's current logo in white on the back. The bottom has licensing information etc in white. Over top of this is a magnetized flap that folds over the top, in shiny pink/orange & yellow with the Jem logo and 35th anniversary markings in holographic foil - it looks white in this photo!
    • These outer boxes seem to be interchangeable with the other two-doll sets from the 35th Anniversary series. 

    The pink flap opens up to reveal the two single doll boxes inside. Each doll is packaged separately. The inside of the main box is hot pink with the Jem logo on the flap. The two single boxes put together (seen from the back) fit together to recreate the same design as the main box. 

    Once completely removed, Kimber's box flap opens like a Western style book (Raya's opens the opposite way, like a pair of cupboards!). The package is a blow up of the original Sharon Knettel artwork from the 1986 Hasbro boxes with 'Kimber of the Holograms' printed in pink holographic foil; it wraps around the one side of the single box. The other sides are similar to the larger box design (black and pink), the back is the spotlight half of the main box back design.

    Pulled out of the "portrait" single box is yet another hot pink cardboard insert to which the doll is attached with white ribbons. The head/hair net is kept in place by a small piece of white thread. The back is white and gives access to the ribbons holding her waist and arms in place. The instrument is in a cello baggie taped to one side of the box. Over the lower legs is a small cardboard box reminiscent of a cassette tape box. When removed, you can access the white ribbon holding the legs in place.

    The cassette box is made up of 3 pieces; a top that closes over the bottom like a chocolate box basically, and a long pink strip of cardboard that tucks into two slits made in the inside of the doll's box. Inside are the second pair of hands, stand parts, the cord, guitar strap and accessories, all in bags.

    Certificate of Authenticity, 35th Anniversary: postcard sized. There is one per pair of dolls. It is bright pink/blank on the back, comes in a plastic baggie.

    Source Differences from cartoon/Hasbro fashion 
    Hasbro Fashion Rock 'n Roses (shown left) The Integrity version is a bit darker overall, has a scrunchie and earrings, otherwise follows the Hasbro design pretty closely.
    Illustrations: Cartoon  The Integrity version follows the scrunchie and earrings lead from the cartoon, but it goes with the ankle boots and guitar that Hasbro's design shows, as well as the bandeau style top, rather than a midriff covering pink undershirt that was shown on the cartoon.
