  Krissie: Hand Comments:  Because the Starlight Girls were, well, "girls", these dolls were always proportioned smaller than the main Jem doll line. As such they are probably the hardest to pick out nude in a lot of dolls, unless you are really sure what you are looking for. To confuse matters even more, Krissie spent two and a half seasons in the cartoon being animated with black hair - but the doll, when released, had thick brown curly hair. Unlike the majority of the Jem line, Krissie and the other Starlight dolls do not have flexibility at the elbow or wrist, having far more 'barbie' like arms and hands. They have waists that allow them to turn but don't give them full mobility. Their shoulders have some flexibility but nothing like the original doll line.
Really, the best way of identifying a nude Krissie doll is to look for the Hasbro stamp - which is just above the waist.
  Krissie: Top
Krissie: Top

Comments
: Very barbie-ish in an eighties kind of way. Krissie's top is orangeish with a flamingo in a star printed on the front. It also ties at the side, as can be seen in the picture.
  Krissie: Stirrup Pants
Krissie: Stirrup Pants

Comments
: They remind me of pyjama bottoms, but these really are Krissie's trousers/stirrup pants. They are, as can be seen, stirrups. Goldish fabric with pink triangles printed over them.

Comments:  
Orange jelly style shoes. All (and only) the Starlight Girls came with this style of shoe.
Krissie: Hairbow
Krissie: Hairbow

Comments:
Mesh bow in orange, threaded with silver. Very pretty, really. Different in fabric type from the Second Year Hologram hairties.

Starlight Girl Grip Comments:
Starlight Girls all came with the same stand - a cloudy pink to match the Second Year Hologram stands, but with a modified grip to take into account the fact they were smaller dolls and therefore had thinner legs. The stand base is identical to any Second Year Hologram base (except Raya, of course!) but the grip has three additional 'teeth' cut into the plastic to assist with the size difference - this can JUST about be seen in the inset to the left.

Comments: As some of the final additions to the Jem line, all three Starlight Girl dolls came in small boxes which were an indication of the never-released third year line to come and their new box style. On the back of her package is featured her and the other released Starlight Girl dolls in sketch form.
  Krissie: Myths and Mysteries
  • Aside from the fact she never made it to issue in all countries, Krissie was not originally created by Hasbro's design team. On the contrary, she and the other Starlight Girls were the creation of series writer Christy Marx, whom Hasbro decided would make excellent doll releases for the second year line. Oddly only Krissie, BaNee and Ashley were issued, despite the prominence of a fourth Starlight Girl - Deirdre.
