PJ Sparkles :: Pets

"Hug me and I light up with love!"

PJ Sparkles was produced by Mattel in 1988-1991. They were a series of large dolls with glowing accessories plus animal friends and an animated video. There were lots of other dolls produced around this time which bore a striking resemblance to one another, and are easy to misidentify at first glance. PJ Sparkles was reissued in 2009 by Zizzle with one large doll and several small playsets with mini light-up dolls.

"Lovin' bunny friends from the world of PJ Sparkles. Sparklins Bunnies are huggable daytime pals who have some magical nighttime surprises - starry bodies that glow, and eyes that grow sleepy when the lights are turned out. They also wear a glow-in-the-dark necklace that girls can wear as a bracelet. Soft and cuddly, these 12* plush Sparklins Bunnies are the perfect daytime to bedtime companions for little girls and boys. Three bunny colours: pink, yellow, or lavender."

There were five Sparklins produced in total. Originally there were three soft toy animals produced, a yellow puppy, a lavender bear and a pink bunny. Then in 1991, advertised as "Sparklins Bunnies", a yellow bunny and a lavender bunny were added along with the previously sold pink bunny. They were 12 inched high and had satin-like bodies with glow-in-the-dark stars on. They each came with a necklace which read "I Love You", which also glowed in the dark. They didn't have individual names.

Blaze

"Twelve-inch Blaze horse carries PJ Sparkles and her friends on their loving adventures. When they ride her, the magical star garland in her mane lights up with love. Colourful garland will also sparkle when girls pet her. Blaze has a soft plush body with shimmering pink fabric hoofs, rainbow highlights in her long pink mane, and a long pink tall."

Blaze was part of the soft bodied range (see Dolls). I assume she lights up somehow, possibly down her mane.
