Take Along Secrets

There were three sets in the Take Along Secrets series.

  • Lipstick Surprise
  • Special Friends Address Book
  • Treasure Purse

The Take Along Secrets Collection, Fairy Sweets Collection and Teapot Twinkle Theatre playset were all part of the second series produced in 1994 in the US (probably 1995 in UK/Europe, but only on a very small scale).

Moulds of two of these sets were used again by Kenner for Littlest Pet Shop playsets.

Lipstick Surprise

"Who's having fun inside your play lipstick? Why, it's a trio of tiny WeeWinkles! Smiley WeeWinkles pops out of the bottom when you push the side lever up and to the right. Smooch and Pucker WeeWinkles fit snugly in the lipstick until you pull off the bottom and there they are!  They'll make you smile!"

The Lipstick Surprise playset came with:

  • Lipstick
  • 3 WeeWinkles (Smooch, Pucker and Smiley)

Special Friends Address Book

"You'll find your favourite friends among the pages of this address book! The fun starts when you pull on the bookmark and a picture of a FairyWinkles friend appears. Then, open the cover and it seems like a regular address book. But don't be fooled! Pen Pal FairyWinkles and Zip WeeWinkles are hiding behind the first page - flip it open and there they are!"

There were two versions of the Special Friends Address Book playset, which came with:

  • Address Book
  • 1 FairyWinkles (Pen Pal)
  • 1 WeeWinkles (Zip)

The US version had "Address Book" written on the cover and text inside but there was also a version with no text on the cover or inside - could this be the Euro version?

Is this the Euro version?
