The He She dolls were an actual factory mistake. See, there was this cartoon show called Jem about an imaginary pop star and she wore crazy clothes. When they went to make the action figure they accidentally put a male head on the body. We can’t be positive, but the one in the picture above looks a lot like Sylvester Stallone. Could it be they mistook Sly for Jem?
One Jem fan told me that the head also looks like Jem’s boyfriend Rio.
We sold out of the original run of them quickly and asked the factory to repeat the mistake. As with most happy accidents, it didn’t work when they did it on purpose. They just sent us an effeminate male doll in vaguely female clothes.
