Jem vs. Barbie and the Rockers (BATR) (Mattel 1986-1987 and 2008-2009)

Who came first "Barbie and the Rockers" or "Jem and the Holograms"?

According to a Hasbro employee, Jem came first. It sounded like Hasbro took a Jem and the Holograms (or "M") box to Hong Kong/China for a trade show. After the show the box was thrown out. It sounds like a Mattel employee took the box out of a dumpster and took it back to the US. According to the Hasbro employee this is way the fabrics used for Barbie and the Rockers where so bright, because Mattel was working from the box and not a real Jem doll. At that point Mattel worked their department over time to get Barbie and the Rockers out first. Mattel did not have as much work to do in pre-production as Hasbro. Mattel already had the doll molds and some accessories, while Hasbro had to make everything from scratch.

The Barbie and the Rocker stage is a variation on the Donny and Marie Osmond T.V. Show Playset from 1977. The TV, camera, stage light, keyboard and guitar were reused in the Hot Rockin' Stage.

  • Diva (Red headed) - new original head mold
  • Dee Dee (African-American) uses the Spanish Barbie head mold (1983)
  • Dana (Asian-American) - uses the Orental Barbie head mold (1980)
  • Derek - new original head mold

So it sounds like Barbie and the Rockers, may have been released first. But only because Hasbro was having to put a lot more work into the Jem line to get it ready for production.

In the article"Jem - Beautiful or Outrageous" by A. Glen Mandeville, Glen quoted Hasbro Senior Vice President Al Corosi as saying that Hasbro found out that Mattel was going to release a female rock band, so Hasbro change the male group to an all female group at that point.

So "Barbie and the Rockers" would not be BATR without JATH, and "Jem and the Holograms" would not JATH without BATR.

Barbie of Barbie and the Rockers (1986)

Thanks to Barbie's 50th Birthday, Mattel released a collection of dolls to represent Barbie through out the years. Mattel released Barbie from "Barbie and the Rockers" for 1986, and included a new fashion for her.

Following that release, a "Barbie and the Rockers" accessories pack became a part of Barbie Basics.

The ad in 1402 shows the Barbie piano.

The ad from 1677 shows a 6 change fashion that seems very similar to Jem's Pink Hollywood Jem dress.
