Apparently this doll came with a varsity jacket,pom poms, and a kid sized megaphone that played cheers.
She's 10" tall, and has the standard articulation,plus jointed knees.
She also has two switches in her back.The one on the left moves her arms up and down, and the one on the left moves her legs.This allows her to shake her pom poms (which I don't have here),and kick.
...but her feet?
|Not so much.|
The premise was that Kim Possible was a high schooler who saved the world on a regular basis,usually from Dr. Drakken and Shego.(Shego looked like Parallel Kim Possible to me.)
|Shego in the upper left corner,Dr. Drakken upper right.In the foreground, Ron Stoppable,Kim,and Rufus the naked mole rat.|
There were also dolls of Kim's best friend and side kick Ron Stoppable.Ron Stoppable always kind of seemed inspired by Ron Weasley,at least, to me.
I would have preferred the action hero looking Kim, which has her standard world saving outfit of cargo pants,black turtle neck,boots, and gloves.
Kim Possible was only the second animated Disney Channel original series. Two TV movies were also made, the first of which was the first Disney Channel Original animated movie.
My kids watched Kim Possible. Emma was 11 when the series started and she was probably the most dedicated viewer in the house.She has a few dolls from the show,including Ron's per mole rat,Rufus.
I think Kim's cheerleading outfit is a bit racy for high school.Now I'm going to say something that is bound to get some hate thrown at me: I can't see why girls have to wear short short skirts and other revealing outfits to cheer for their team. Male cheerleaders don't have to show skin. And the idea that girls dressed like that are entertainment at a school ball game is a bit disturbing. Who is watching these girls,after all? Adult fathers and high school boys. Kind of inappropriate. (Ok, I'm a prude.) And I always hoped that if my girls loved a sport, they'd play it, not cheer on other people playing it. (Ok,so not everybody can play. I just want them to realize they have the choice.)So Kim Possible played both sides of the fence. She was the crime fighting hero, not her clutzy friend Ron. But then she had to go back into the real world and wear a skimpy cheerleading outfit and cheer on the guys.
Come back tomorrow for another doll.
