Welcome to the
Official home of
Ruby Red Jem!

Update: while I still believe this head to be Glitter'n Gold Jem/Jerrica. Hasbro was working on a Ruby Red Jem doll for 1988. The doll would have come in a red dress, but it never appeared in the series before the series was canceled.

Now you might be asking who is “Ruby Red Jem”? Why you may have never heard of her? Was she a 1988 unproduced Jem doll? Ruby Red Jem was the working name for “Glitter’n Gold Jem”.

So now your asking why did they call her “Ruby Red Jem” instead of “Glitter’n Gold Jem”? Because Hasbro, Mattel and other toys companies had toys produced in the same Asian factories, the “working name” kept the competition in the dark. Product Managers from all the toy companies would go to the factories to check on production. If Hasbro was using the name “Glitter’n Gold” then Mattel would have known Jem was “going gold” and immediately Mattel would have created a gold themed Barbie to compete.

It looks like the eye made-up was green to throw off anyone that was trying to figure out what this doll was going to look like.

I think this is an especially exciting part of Jem’s history because Ruby Red was also the name Hasbro gave to Sunbow to develop the cartoon. Christy Marx the writer of the Glitter and Gold episode noted that she felt like Hasbro did not trust Sunbow to keep the secret identity of this doll.

I’m not sure why the name Ruby Red was chosen, if was a color choice, like the official color of Jemstar earrings (thou those seem more garnet red) or even a Red Carpet reference since Glitter’n Gold wasdeveloped as a Hollywood Glamour theme.

I find it interesting that Ruby Red was not completely eliminated from Glitter'n Gold because Hasbro used a ruby color dot for the "i" in Glitter.

I think it is also very cool to see the mold number is 601095-49M, which brakes down to 1986 January 09, fifth mold logged that day. The 49M represents that this is the 49th version of the mold and/or make-up design. The date only shows us with the original mold was logged, but does not give us any information about when this mold was created and if (or when) it might have been shipped over to China to begin decoration of the dolls. This shows us that Glitter’n Gold “Ruby Red” was in development before Jem debuted at the 1986 New York Toy Fair.

1987 Jem/Jerrica

“1987 Jem/Jerrica” does not seem to have a “working name” like “Ruby Red”. More then likely the new Jem/Jerrica doll didn’t need a fake identity because it was assumed that the Jem/Jerrica doll would be available again in 1987 and they just changed her face – so in a way the name “Flash’n Sizzle” was still protected from the competition by the working name of “1987 Jem/Jerrica”. Another reason they might have only called her “1987 Jem/Jerrica” is because a new name may not have been finalized or even considered. Hasbro cases for “Flash’n Sizzle Jem” have the name “Flash’n Fashion Jem”, but the word “Fashion” is was covered up with “Sizzle” … so Sizzle may have been a very last minute change for a doll that could have just came out as Jem/Jerrica, similar to the “New Look” Holograms – they didn’t not have a name change and were not incorporated into a theme. I assume Hasbro did not see a reason to disguises her name because Flash’n Sizzle was only a one up doll, while Glitter’n Gold was a complete theme that included Jem, Rio, fashions and a new roadster.

1986 June 01 is the mold was logged, and when Hasbro must have decided to give Jem/Jerrica a new look. It is interesting to see that Ruby Red had a new face five months before they changed the Jem/Jerrica face to match. The 1986 Jem/Jerrica the Holograms and Misfits were already on the shelves, the last of the playsets and Rio were just making their way to the stores, and Jem the series was still a month away from officially starting with the new "Starbright" epsidoes.

Glitter’n Gold Jem vs. Flash’n Sizzle Jem
I will be locating some bad hair cut dolls in my collection to do a better comparison between these heads and the produced dolls. But this 1987 Jem/Jerrica head seems a lot different and smaller than the Ruby Red Jem head. When comparing them with a typical doll with hair the head molds seem the same as their produced version. So are the produced head really different? They don’t seem to be that different, and it seems like they should be the exact same mold, except for being produced in two different factories with two different molds.

Jem Pet

“Jem Pet” is next on the list, and like 1987 Jem/Jerrica she too doesn’t have a “working name” other than “Jem pet”. So who knows if Rama Llama was already the given name for Jem’s pet llama by March of 1987 or not. But this is more evidence that this llama was created specially to be a part of the Jem line.

1986 April was when the 15 Super Sunday segments combined and aired as the five-part episode in the Jem series. That shows how early Hasbro wanted to give Jem a pet and already decided to make her pet a llama. The dolls only debueted at 1986 Toy Fair a few months earlier.

The 1987 March 13 date should be when the paint was finalized to start production. That date is the Friday before the brand new Jem “Glitter and Gold” episode was aired for the first time on Sunday March 15, 1987. This was also a few weeks after the 1987 Toy Fair, and around the time Hasbro decided to stop development on Jem after little confidence was shown by the toy story buyers for the 1987 line, including the Glitter’n Gold theme. That may explain why she was produced and became a mail-in offer for My Little Pony.

This is one of three, the other two were sent to the factory in China. This Paintmaster was kept for Hasbro’s record, so they would have reference to what was sent to China. The original designer of Rama Llama was responsible for printing this paintmaster and hand wrote the information on the bottom.
