Actually, I wish these were not so expensive. But it's still really cool to see new (and much improved!) remakes of the dolls that I loved playing with as a child. It's just the price tag is so disappointing. It would be cool if they redid this entire series...after all, a woman leading a rock band while running a record label and helping out an orphanage would make a really strong role model in today's world for our children (and us) to learn from!
Seriously, we played with these dolls ALL the time. Probably the same amount we played with our Barbies. I think I had the Jem doll and my sister had one of the Misfit characters, Roxy maybe?
Did I mention I can still sing the whole song?
Want to hear it for yourself?
Watch it here:
My sister got me the entire first season on DVD a few years ago. I practically shrieked when I opened it and then promptly sang the song above. Nope, had no influence on me whatsoever.
You know, if I had more time...I totally would tried to be Synergy for Halloween this year. :)
