I was a Barbie doll fanatic. Yes a fanatic that didn’t want to give up her Barbie dolls even when it was “time”. No I didn’t have a very large collection, I wasn’t a collector and my parents didn’t have a lot of money to spend on them so the ones I did have were well loved. One of them that I really liked was Barbie and the Rockers, I had the stage and everything. I don’t remember ever having a Jem doll, but I do remember using my Barbie dolls and re-enacting the TV series Jem and the Holograms, which by the way you can watch on the HUB or get the complete series on DVD on October 11th.
So when the whole box set arrived today, I giggled as I showed it to my husband who had NO CLUE who Jem and The Holograms were. He just looked at me and said, you get too much stuff with your blog. Men!
I’m sure I watched a lot of Jem and the Holograms on TV when I was a child. I loved her pink hair. I know Zoe is going to love watching this with me. Even more so when I tell her this is what I watched when I was her age.
Check out this exclusive clip from Jem and the Holograms the Truly Outrageous Complete Series. This is a blast from the past, turns out, I didn’t even remember what the premise of the show was.
