Doll Name Jetta
Stock # (US) #4214
Hasbro package contents listing 12 1/2" doll with stage fashion, pretend saxophone, hairpick, pumps, cassette tape and figure stand.
Comments/Trivia
  • It is possible she was the last 12 1/2" Jem doll produced. 
  • Ironically, she was not sold in the UK;  neither was she sold in France. It's likely she did not get any European distribution. 
Produced Variants So far, I have only seen Jetta with "Made in China" markings on her back (upper and lower stamps). To learn more about these body types and slight differences, please see the body variations page.
More Skip here to see more about packaging variations from different countries, promotional boxes, etc. Skip here for a listing of other depictions of Jetta (cartoon, prototypes, catalogues, etc).

12 1/2" doll; Caucasian doll with very long straight black hair with silver tinsel strands, has spiky bangs.
  • She can be found with the back of her head being painted, but bald, with no punch holes.  (Clash also has this variation)
  • Jetta, Clash & Danse share the same face mold, , which in turn looks like it was adapted from the Erica face mold from Kenner's Darci doll line. 

stage fashion (shirt); a sleeveless black cotton tank top with white fabric painted polka dots, velcro closure in back, large triangular silver tabard in front (attached to shirt) trimmed with a black fringe.

stage fashion (skirt); Black cotton mini skirt, elasticized waist, white fabric-paint polka dot design (matches top).

Anything in Italics I haven't actually seen but have good reason to believe exists. If you have any photos or information/corrections to share, I'd love to hear about it!
