Wow, I am a 9 year old kid again! When I saw that Jem and the Holograms were finally being released on DVD I was so happy. I was almost as excited as I was opening my Jem dolls on Christmas day! I had five of them, Jem, Kimber, Aja and two of the Misfits, Stormer and Roxy, although all with drastic hair do's since I got them, shame dolls hair doesn't grow back!!
I got into Jem when I was 9 at school, some girl had an Aja doll and I wanted one just like it so she was my first doll, then I got the full length video for Christmas and then more dolls and the Glitter and Gold video! I didn't get to see all the episodes; they didn't seem to air them all in the U.K, only the first few leading up to the Battle of the Bands. So this DVD is a great find. I guess Jem wasn't as popular in the U.K or well known as I mention it to people my age (27) and no one remembers them. But I do!
Jem was such a great idea for a doll, she had her own cartoon show and the dolls each came with their own music tape which I loved. The girl singing the songs had an amazing voice and to a girl obsessed with Madonna and Belinda Carlisle at the time, this was perfect!
If you love the 80's you will love this. Even if you don't remember Jem go and buy it, it's a lot better than the cartoons they have for kids nowdays.
