|Christie's blue hair changes to black.|
In my August 11, 2014, post, "Turning Heads," Tiffany Taylor and Taylor Jones by Ideal illustrate their swivel heads and hair color changes. After Roxanne informed me that Mattel's Jam 'n Glam Christie from 2001 has this 1970s feature, I added the doll to my saved eBay search. Since then, several eBay listings of never-removed-from-box dolls with prices that ranged from $25 to $50, have come and gone. Gone, because my goal was to pay less.
|Close look of Jam 'N Glam Christie|
Jam 'n Glam Christie uses the Asha sculpt. She has blue nylon fibered hair that changes to black when the crown of her head is turned. Her new millennium plus one box date is probably responsible for the use of metallic silver fabric for her skirt that has an asymmetrical hemline. A shimmery sky blue halter top reverses to blue with squiggly purple lines. The long sleeves of her faux purple shrug are removable. Sky blue platform shoes complete her look. In addition to her "Twist 'N Turn" hair, Christie has an "Ever-Flex" waist.

Accessories include purple sunglasses, headset microphone, autographed head shot card, two fan cards, two CDs, one CD cover, and instructions. Three hair extensions, one each in purple, lime, and pink are included for Christie or child owner.
As illustrated on the back of box, a Jam 'N Glam tour bus was sold separately for Christie, Barbie and Teresa to travel to and from their "rock in'" concerts.
The doll I purchased was offered on eBay for $25 or best offer. Within minutes of placing it, the seller accepted my offer of $15. Based on the green Walmart sticker price of $14.67 that remains on the front of the box, my cost, minus shipping, was just a few cents over retail.
