Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders (Kenner)

 

Ride the Wild Magic with Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders!

The Crown Jewels of Avalon have been scattered throughout the kingdom, unleashing powerful magic that Princess Gwenevere, Fallon, and Tamara must tame.  Using the magic of the Enchanted Jewels to speak with fantastic animal friends, these adventurous teens team up with daring, wolf-riding boys to outwit the outlaw Lady Kale and reclaim the Jewels that can save the enchanted kingdom of Avalon.

Friends Together, Friends Forever!

The Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders doll line arrived to retailer shelves in the Fall of 1995. Examples of known stores that carried the toys included Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, KB Toys, JC Penney, and Toys R Us.

The doll line consisted of three sections, “Jewel Power – Doll Edition,” “Jewel Adventure – Deluxe Doll Edition,” and “Jewel Adventure – Deluxe Animal Edition.”

First was the “Jewel Power – Doll Edition” line. These were the basic dolls that included one cloth piece, several snap-on jewel armor pieces, a comb/shield, a hidden jewel in the package, and a mask that moved up and down to reveal a light-piping feature to make the jewels on the dolls glow. The line included the three Jewel Riders, Drake, Lady Kale, and “Sun Power” Gwenevere wearing her traveling outfit from the episode “Dreamfields.”

The second line was called “Jewel Adventure – Deluxe Doll Edition.” These were deluxe dolls of Gwenevere, Fallon, and Tamara that included cloth dresses, snap-on armor pieces, fully rooted hair, and accessories that worked with the magnets hidden in the girls’ jewels or arms. Gwenevere included the Jewel Box, Fallon included the little dragon Windy from “The Faery Princess,” and Tamara included Spike. Each of them also included a comb that doubled as a stand, and another hidden jewel in the packaging.

The third line was called “Jewel Adventure – Deluxe Animal Edition.” This line included the unicorns Sunstar and Moondance. Each came with a flag comb and a rooted hair tail. Both featured the light-piping glowing jewel feature of the “Jewel Power” dolls. Sunstar came with a saddle that had her wings attached, and Moondance came with a saddle, flags, and mask. Both unicorns had variants based on the color of the plastic surrounding their jewels. In one edition, the plastic was metallic gold (for Sunstar) and metallic silver (for Moondance). In the other edition the plastic was pink (Sunstar) and purple (Moondance). The metallic edition seems to be the more rare edition. Each of the unicorns shares a mold with one of the horses in Kenner’s “Fashion Star Fillies” line.

“Expose the head of Sunstar to a light and the jewel glows as shown. Saddle can be removed from Sunstar. Wings are poseable. Use the banner comb to style her beautiful tail.”

Moondance

“Expose the head of Moondance to a light and the jewel glows as shown. Face mask, saddle and blanket can be removed from Moondance. Use the banner comb to style her beautiful tail.”
