Like the Spanish dolls, the Mexican dolls seem to be manufactured in the same country they where released in. Mexican dolls are know for having no stamp what so ever. The plastic and fabrics are all different from the international version, manufactured in Hong Kong and China. Some Hybrid versions have China/Hong Kong heads, even 2nd issue Hologram heads. There has been no sign of a Rio doll made in Mexico, also no sign of fashions. I think someone said the Roadster was released in Mexico, but no information is known, and if it was released there for sure, and if it was manufactured in Mexico, or imported. Strange enough, most Mexican dolls have been found in the UK.
The Jem dolls from Mexico where made by a different company. "Juguetes con Vida" made these dolls, but it is a subdivision of Hasbro.
These dolls are not the same quality as the Hasbro line. The make-up, fabric, instrument colors and plastic all differ from the normal world wide produced Jem.
These can be argued as being knockoffs. They are not Hasbro manufactured, or produced. But Hasbro did give licensing to Juguetes con Vida to produce these dolls. Since they are not part of the standard line, I see how the idea of knockoff enters the picture. But they are licensed by Hasbro, so to me these are a part of the line just like the coloring books and penicels.
Make sure and check out Pranceatron Vs. Jem for more pictures and information about these dolls.
Jem/Jerrica, Kimber, Aja, Shana, Roxy, Pizzazz, and Stormer where made by this company...it sounds like Rio was not released in Mexico.
The Mexican dolls can either have an Mexican head (no stamp, really light make-up) or the typical China/Hong Kong head (with a stamp) and those are usually 2nd issue dolls. The Holograms with China head have earring holes and it sounds like the usually have earrings.
There are more pictures of the Mexican bodies on the body page.
I am looking for each doll NRFB or MIB...the pure Mexican dolls. I'm also looking to buy loose/nude dolls to complete the table below.
Mexican Jem - US Jem (notice the make-up, hair, bracelet, belt, and dress ... everything is different except the tights are very similar)
The Mexican Jem/Jerrica hairpick is a flat white.
I adjusted the levels of the same hairpick to show that there is no "TM" after Jem...Jem on the stand also has no "TM"
