Sweet Secrets :: Animal Charms
"An adorable transformable world!"
Sweet Secrets were produced by Galoob from 1985 into the mid 1990's. Later on, a few of Galoob's dolls and playsets were released Blue Box. They started off as a series of lockets which transformed into dolls and animals, and as they grew in popularity Sweet Secrets became more diverse, even expanded into playsets.
They were sold in the US, UK and other parts of Europe, and I currently know of one name variation:
- UK & US: Sweet Secret
- Italy: Dolci Segreti
Animal charms came with a hair-clip and necklace which they could be attached to and worked in exactly the same way as the doll charms. They varied in shape, some quite dramatically from the dolls.
There were six original animals with one more (Tutu Toucan) added as the line expanded. There were also six new characters produced re-using some of the moulds but given different colours and names. These ones are often referred to by sellers and collectors as colour variations of the originals, although this was not what was intended by Galoob I'm sure! The toucan and Koala moulds weren't used for the second series, and the puppy mould was used twice. Apart from the colourings, the other most noticeable difference was to the lack of detailing to their faces.
The six new designs were also sold by Blue Box and were identical to Galoob's in both colour and name (although Blue Box packaging has Shinie Mouse and Beary Sweet named the other way around, which I have taken to be a mistake).
