Misc. Items

There was alot more to Jem than the dolls and books. All kinds of products were released by different companies.

The most commonly found items are the wrist watches and board games by Hasbro, the lunch box by Aladdin, the sleeping bags, viewmaster reels and party supplies. As for the rest, most of the stuff are so rare you might only ever see it once, and there are Jem collectors collecting any piece they can find.

Digital Watches, 1986 by Hasbro:
These watches are some of the few Jem items that Hasbro released that had no direct connection to dolls. Unlike other toycompanies who just take a finished watch design and put a toy picture on it to cash in some extra money, Hasbro really put an effort into designing these to fit into the Jem music style, and with a special feature of pushing a button to reveal the time in a unique way for each of the three watches. They even made a commercial for it Contains an instructions sheet, a Glitter 'n Gold poster (with first year back) and Jem and the Holograms Fan Club and MTV Jacket Offer. Runs on a MAXWELL LR726 size button battery. Back. Carton.

  • Wrist Rocks
    The entire watch is designed like a keyboard with the Jem logo, with white and pink keys.

  • Wrist Rocks
    A turquoise wrist band, the main watch piece is pink and in shape of a LP-cover with the Jem logo, a shape of an LP-record piece pops out and reveals the time with a click on the button.

  • Wrist Rocks
    A yellow wrist band, the main watch piece is orange and shaped like a music cassette with a sticker with the Jem logo on it. Opened. [Picture by Penelope @ Farpoint Toys & Collectibles. Collection of Anna-Maria Fabbricante]

Lunchboxes, 1986 by Aladdin:
In the one and only prototype, made for management review, the Aladdin artists painted the thermos design onto a sheet of paper that was made to fit around the pink thermos (which is actually another one manufactured that same year called “Fluppy Dogs”) and attached it by taping a clear plastic sheet over it.

Erasers, 1986 by Spindex Corporation:
Miniature figures that are actually erasers. Although I'm not sure how well they work to erase with since most colors are painted on. The back says "Hey kids! Be sure to look for our Jem products to add to your collection: Pop-A Point Pencils, Pop-A-Point Crayons, Diecut Erasers, Pencil Toppers, Pencil Pouches, Ballpoint Pens, School Kits, Jumbo Erasers". All of these items are very hard to find these days. Made in Hong Kong.

  • Keychain (Finland)
    It could play melodies, no Jem melodies though, and it was not made by Hasbro. But what connects the keychain to Jem was that it was packaged on a card that used Jem art which appeared on the Jem doll boxes, and the "Je" from the Jem logo, had been turned into looking like an R, as in Radio. [Information and pictures by Sanni Sirén]

Cassettes, 1986 by Tempo Twins (UK):

Short Jem stories on double cassettes, two stories on each, read by Barbara Rosenblat. Also printed in the Annual book released in the UK in 1986. There was also a second Annual in 1987 and perhaps some stories from that one were also released on cassettes. Inside says: "JEM, the glittery rock star with the secret dual identity. Off stage she is Jerrica Benton, Chief Executive of the Starlight Music Corporation, but with the help of Synergy, a holographic computer and her earrings (which are really micro projectors) she transforms into JEM.".

Costumes, 2012 by Disguise:

First introduced at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con and advertise to be sold at Spirit Halloween. The costumes come in the sizes: adult large, adult medium, and adult small. Unfortunately the wigs don't come with the costumes, you have to buy them separately. This is the most Jem-looking costumes yet. Alot more detailed than the plastic ones from the 80's, and alot better than unlicensed ones that are sold online. Infact they even beat most of the fanmade ones. Interesting to see how they solved the Synergy one, and surprising they even made one of her. Not sure who is supposed to play the guitar of these characters, probably Pizzazz.

  • Jem wig
    Apparently the wig is not all the fluffy, but thinner than in the picture, and with a lack of bangs, and too small for some peoples heads.
  • Jem costume
    Includes: Dress with velcro closure, belt, earrings, and pretend microphone (also sold separately).
  • Microphone
  • Pizzazz wig
    Unlike the pictures, customers report that the stitches on the wig are visible under the hair, the hair comes off easily if brushed, and is more green than neon yellow.
  • Pizzazz costume
    Includes: Dress, belt, knee sash, and stocking.
  • Synergy wig
    According to customers the wig doesn't have the same volume on top as in the pictures.
  • Synergy costume
    Includes: Dress with velcro closure, shrug, boot covers, and headband.
  • Inflatable guitar
    A different one than the one sold at the SDCC.
