|doll: The Made in Spain Jem doll closely resembles the regular US-issue China & Hong Kong made 1st Edition Jem/Jerrica dolls. Her head is very much like a Made in China star-capped Jem head, with the exception of not having star-caps, otherwise the markings and make up scheme are the same.|
|The earrings also stuck out a little more than a regular US-issued doll, not sure if that's peculiar to my doll or not. Otherwise her head looks a lot like a China-made doll and has the same markings.|
|The skintone of the Spanish-made Jem/Jerrica has a distinctly beige tone to it - it's not very noticeable unless right next to a Made in China or Hong Kong doll. Mine can not sit without her pelvis making a "popping" noise (similar to bending the knees). Overall it seemed as though the pelvis was just in wrong somehow- she even has a slightly pot-bellied appearance. I'm not sure if this is typical of Spanish dolls or if I just got a particularly bad one.|
|The easiest way to tell if you have a Spanish doll is to simply look at her markings on her back! Notice she has the smaller battery cover.|
|The most obvious difference in her body is the feet- you will notice they are arched more than the average Jem doll's (far left is the Spanish foot)|
|Microphone differences - various 1st edition Jem/Jerricas and Flash N' Sizzle Jem at the end.|
|belt - the brocade is rotated 90 degrees (like the Mexican belt) but otherwise looks comparable to a Hong Kong or China made doll's belt.|
|Dress - the Spanish one (on the left) looks very much like a Made in China dress - slightly bigger, paler and smoother material, compared to the Hong Kong dress on the right. Like the China dresses, it closes on the right.|
|shoes; If I found the Spanish ones loose, I wouldn't be able to differentiate them from a regular pair of 1st Edition Jem/Jerrica thick-sided shoes. These Jem ones aren't rubbery like the Jerrica shoes are.|
|hair picks; Neither Spain or Mexico have the iridescent sheen. The Spanish one has the TM by the logo, Mexican does not. The Mexican is kind of pearly, Spanish isn't - it kinda reminds me of a bar of soap in terms of colour ;)|
|sunglasses: The regular (China/Hong Kong) 1st Edition Jem/Jerrica ones can vary, and be more like the Spanish ones in shape and colour too. The Mexican ones, yet again, are the oddballs here, being much paler and of a different shape entirely (look at the nose rest area to see what I mean).|
|stand: my Spanish Jem came with the same stand as my Italian 1st issue Aja doll, it has the TM mark.|
|zapatos de salón; ^_^ Whatever this translate to, it's Jerrica's funny rubbery shoes. This is the main difference that I know of between Spanish and US/Hong Kong dolls, they are pretty neat!|
|Items not listed in Hasbro's box contents (not all dolls came with the same posters and inserts, this is a listing of what I got personally with my dolls)|
In Spain, Jem/Jerrica came with a tape too. I'm not sure if they all did or not, mine is twist-tied right into the backer, it's not an in-store promotion.
Other than licensing information, says nothing but the Jem logo and Cara A/Cara B. The songs are in English (mostly), the dialogue is in Spanish.
A man reciting the Jem story in Spanish, interspersed with some Jem and Misfits songs (shown below), some have clapping and/or introductions during them.
