  • 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 VariantsSo 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 - technically she's Vietnamese but there is no difference in skin tone at all- with long silky black 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.

jams; (aka. shorts): Crisp cotton, Bermuda length, rolled at cuffs, elasticized cinch waist, floral pattern.

  • The pattern can vary among the dolls, see a photo of two pairs together.  It's the same pattern, just cut from different parts of the fabric.

top: Crisp cotton crop top with faux straps sewn in. Rolled at sleeves.
  • Similar in design to the bedding from the New Wave Waterbed.

belt; plastic gummy spiral in hot pink

headpiece: blue metallic lace hairbow
  • All of the Starlight Girls got hairbows like this.

socks: dark pink cotton crew socks with white lace trim. 

shoes: Mauve-pink flat jelly shoes.
  • All of the Starlight girls came with this type of shoe.

hairpick: Bright sea foam green.
  • I've not seen this colour with any other Jem doll.

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.
