KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Heres one more sign that the 80s revival is out of control: Hallmark cards is bringing back the Rainbow Brite doll.
The multi-colored moppet has had a makeover and is back on store shelves for the first time in years, and toy industry insiders predict the doll could make a John Travolta-style comeback.
A few things have changed since Rainbow Brites early 80s heyday: Instead of go-go boots and a pouf skirt, she now wears a neon-colored tunic, leggings and green Mary Jane shoes.
Her big 80s-style rainbow-colored hairdo has been toned down and replaced with longer, blonde hair featuring subtle rainbow highlights.
The new Rainbow Brite is also politically correct and has a multicultural cast of friends including Hispanic, Asian, Native American and light and dark-skinned African- American versions.
