2nd Canadian issue

"La Serie Johnny West" Mod Colours Bilingual

It seems that the kids were the first figures to be produced in mod colors in Canada. Bruno has spotted many blue girls without rivets in shoulders indicating they were made before 1970 and were still in production a couple years after that.

3rd Canadian issue

"La Serie Johnny West" Bilingual

Canadian Janice was then issued in a true Bilingual French box.

She went through some transformation in this box.
Starting out with a Dark Blue body with pastel green accessories, she changed over to the normal Turquoise body with Royal blue clevis pin heads and usually pastel green accessories.


Brown Mailer Box

These shipping boxes were used throughout Janice's life in Canada.

JWA figures were not produced in Canada. They were imported from the US and bilingual instructions manuals were added. Then they would simply apply a sticker on the box saying that french instructions were included.

Janice in Canada came with either the standard US Cream set of accessories or a pastel green set. Her french language instruction manual is shown at right.
