 The Pink Aisle . . . . And Then Some, Please Help Me With My Book Project!

This is a book project of mine. I was inspired by this book:

Just Can't Get Enough

See, I have seen a bunch of books and television programs about Fads of the 1980's, and they either usually put down some of my favorites, or leave others out entirely. In anycase, I want to showcase toys that appealed mostly to girls in the 80's ("The Pink Aisle") and still others that appealed to both boys and girls (" . . . . And Then Some"). In any case, here's what I'm planning on using:

Barbie (80's only)
Strawberry Shortcake
Rainbow Brite
Cabbage Patch Kids
My Little Pony
Lady Lovely Locks
Rose Petal Place
Glo Worm and Glo Friends
Care Bears
The Get Along Gang

And there are ten "Honorable Mentions" (Dream Dancer Doll, Dream Skater Doll, Keypers, Fashion Star Fillies, Fairy Tails, Furrever Friends, Purr Tenders, Moondreamers, Star Fairies, and Pound Puppies)

I apologize if I'm leaving out anyone's favorite, but it's practically impossible to do a book about every single toy of the 1980's.

Anyway, I'm not a collector of everything, so I'm going to need some help from all of you here (or as many of you as possible). I need photos of the following:

Jem Dolls
She-Ra Dolls

Any one Fashion Star Filly

The thing is, I don't collect Jem or She-Ra, and I'm not particularly interested in those lines (sorry to all the Jem and She-Ra fans out there! They're just not my cup of tea, you know?) but I can't really leave them out of this book. I REALLY need pictures of them. Please help me!
