Powder Monki ~ Retro Badges & Magnets

Hollywoods were produced in 1987-88 by Tonka. They were a series of 5 inch dolls with jointed arms, legs and head and had painted-on swim suits, tights (on some) and sandals. They had colour-change hair which changed when warm.

There were also a few small playsets and fashions produced, although I'm unsure if any of the 1988 items were sold on general release (or if at all).

Images on this page are a mixture of mine, found on eBay, thanks to Kim, or taken from Tonka's 1988 toy catalogue (with thanks to Totally Jem).

Original Set [1987]

"Look! My hair changes colour"!

Each doll came with a brush and hair ribbon. I believe there were six dolls in the original set.

Colour-Change [1988]

"The coolest kids under the sun!"

Eight more dolls were added in 1988, including two male dolls. This time they came with one piece of clothing (a shirt for the girls and shorts for the boys), plus a brush each too. The girls also had ribbons in their hair.

  • "New outfits and hair colours: 2 new styles to collect!
  • High-fashion 5" dolls with trendy sunglasses and colour-change surprise.
  • Hair changes colour with the warmth of a touch or dip in warm water and changes back again when it cools.
  • Each doll comes with shirt or shorts and brush for hair styling."

  • "Cool dolls with sparkling shimmering hair!
  • Each doll dressed in Hollywood-style glitzy jacket.
  • Each doll comes with own styling brush.
  • Six collectable styles, each with a unique look."
