  1. My girls grew up watching the Jem Cartoons. The oldest still has her Jem doll and a few t-shirts that she saved. I think their favorite song they used to sing around the house was "I Got My Eye On You".. brings back a lot of memories of the girls when they were younger.
    Thanks for sharing!
