Comments/Trivia
  • The Starlight Girls are the only dolls that were on the cartoon first, then made into dolls. It is possible that this is the reason she and the other Starlight Girls are not seen in the books, comics or other non-cartoon/doll related Jem projects.
Produced Variants So far, I know of dolls marked on their backs with one of the following places of manufacture, and there are slight variations among them:
  • Made in Hong Kong

11" doll; Caucasian teenage doll with long blond wavy hair.  These are the least recognizable Jem dolls as they are proportioned like teenagers, plus their arms don't bend, flat feet, wrists don't swivel.  

blouse; Crisp white cotton, collared and velcros in the front, sleeves rolled up to elbows.
  • Similar to, but not identical to Raya's shirt pattern.

pants; Crisp black cotton with same floral pattern as shirt, elasticized waist, mid-calf length, vertical slits on the inner seams.

socks; Thin white ribbed cotton crew socks, folded over and sewn in place.

belt/suspenders; hot pink leatherette belt with a small "D" shaped velveteen patch "belt buckle", velcro closure in front.  Attached crisp black cotton floral suspenders (match pants). 

scarf (hair ribbon); dark pink mesh with polka-dots and silver tinsel threads weaved in.  She has a small pony tail on the back of her head which is secured with this hair ribbon. 

shoes; Light aqua blue jelly shoes. 
  • All of the Starlight girls came with this type of shoe.

hairpick;
  • note, I bought an opened doll, so this may not be her correct hair pick.

figure stand; Milky hot pink; the leg stand is peculiar to Starlight Girls, as they have small lines on the inside to hold their smaller legs in place, the hole is also a bit smaller in the bottom. 
  • Each Starlight Girl came with the same stand.

Source Differences from produced doll (if any)
1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue She is shown wearing opaque purple jelly shoes.
Ashley on the 2nd year catalogue poster It appears to be the same doll used in the 1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue, but in a different pose, she is shown wearing opaque purple jelly shoes.
1987 French Toy Fair Catalogue Again, shown wearing opaque purple jelly shoes.  The outfit also looks really badly fitted to me.
Illustrations: Hasbro Box art (Starlight Girls Box Back)
Ashley on the cartoon At first Ashley is shown in a yellow and black number (shown left), but by the Glitter and Gold episode, she was redesigned to look more like the doll - blonder, blue-eyed and wearing her doll outfit.  She is the only Starlight Girl that is shown on the cartoon wearing the doll's fashion.
