Charmkins

Charmkins were "scented jewellery playmates" 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. The Charmkins were interchangeable with all jewellery. Each figure also came with a story on the back of their card.

There was also a whole array of accessories, such as jewellery, tea sets and stickers, animated videos, books and several playsets.

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

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.
