Charmkins :: Packaging

"Scented playmates...you'll love to wear around!"

Charmkins were produced in the early 1980's by Hasbro. They were tiny figures or animals, about an inch high and each came with a piece of jewellery, such as a hair comb, necklace or clip. There was also several playsets, various accessories, books and animated videos.

Charmkins were sold in the US, UK and other parts of Europe under varying names:
  • UK, & US: Charmkins
  • Italy: Pimpi Rosa

I have also found packaging for three more Twosomes, so maybe more of the single Charmkins were also sold in Italy.
