Charmkins :: Figures

"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

Figures

Charmkins were available in several ways. Jewellery Playmates had seven figure in the first series and a further ten in the second. Twosome Jewellery Playmates had three figure in the first series and a further three in the second. There were seven characters which came with medium sized accessories/playsets and four which came with larger playsets. There was also one mail order character.

Jewellery Playmates

There were eight Charmkins produced in the first release, four dolls and three animals (two of which were sold together). Ten more Charmkins were then added in the second release, five dolls and five animals. The second release included a pony which resembles a My Little Pony Mommy Charm so closely it is often mistakenly thought to be one.
