Description
This was a series of audio tapes and exercise equipment. There was a skipping rope, and all sorts of rhythmic gymnastic-style equipment...the ad was really catchy, still sticks in my head to this day!!

I had 2 or 3 Get In Shape Girl sets. I'd do them out in the back yard. I know I had the pink barbells, a jump rope, blue wristbands, and (my favorite) the stick/ribbon. Kids these days could really use toys like this!

Ha ha! I forgot about Get in Shape Girl -- I had the set with the ribbon on a stick and the set with the white hand weights and lavender leg warmers. One of those sets came with wristbands and a headband. I think I actually used it with the tapes once and I felt so stupid, that was the only time.

Ha ha! I totally remember this! I had a white and pink gym bag, pink wrist bands and a head band and the tapes. Remember how the label would start peeling off of the fabric? I also have memories of playing with a stick with the streamer!

I remember my mom said she couldn't get it for me cause she wasn't working so she had no money for that... well my uncle had gotten a new girlfriend and I hated her... i really did...IDK why but I just didn't like her... well she over heard me talking to my mom about it and so to kiss up to me she bought me every single get in shape girl work out kit she could find... I played with it about a week and was over it... my uncle and her aren't together anymore, but she is one of my best friends.

One of the book/tape combo sets came with instrumental music on the B side. I remember making up dance routines to that music, sounded like synthesizer soft-pop, then I would force my parents and their visiting friends to watch my latest "choreography"

Oh man. Does anyone remember the pink plastic ballet barre that you glued to a door or wall. It also came with a rockin' tutu. Good memories. BTW. A new company has re-released the GISG brand. The toys are pretty cool and the music is just as cheesy. I bought it for a friends daughter.

I loved Get In Shape Girl! Children these days could benefit from activity like that.

I so miss my leg warmers and head band. I would twirl that white stick with the pink ribbon on it. I used to drive my parents and my little brother crazy with those tapes.

I ADORED the ballet version of this! I totally remember the barre that you had to strap around a door and the tutu!! and of course the sweatbands for your wrists and head...

For some reason the song just popped in my head and I googled it...nice to see others have such fond memories of the workout toys too :) I'd love to buy the set for my step-daughter!!

I LOVED this tape as a little girl! I even used it throughout my high school years in the 90's! I miss it! Wish I could find it so I could use it now as it was so easy to just pop in the tape and work out right there in our living room at home. My mom and I worked out to it and I had so much fun and it sure did keep me in shape! They need to bring it back!!!!!

I forgot about Get In Shape Girl, I had a couple sets, and I loved them, pink barbells & the one with a ribbon. I am surprised they don't make them still! It was good fun!

I had the dumbbell & jump rope sets; always wanted the ribbon & hoop set (sets? not sure if those were together or not). Anyone know where to buy?

When these commercials first aired I thought they were hilarious! But these days, when I look around and see so many little girl -- and boy -- porkers, maybe we should re-release a new Get In Shape Girl -- and Boy -- series.
