Sweet Secrets :: Doll Charms - 2nd Series

Sweet Secrets

"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

Doll Charms - 2nd Series

Second series Sweet Secret charms, like the first, each came with a necklace and hair-clip which they could be attached to.

Six more doll charms were added in the second series. Like the first series doll, all the new dolls were produced with the three different gem styles but this time never varied from their body colouring. They didn't come with bows or have rosey cheeks this time.

Blue Box produced all six doll charms from Galoob's second series (but not the three original dolls). They used the same six names but for different dolls, and the dolls were almost identical apart from some small differences to their eyes (some may even have been completely identical, I have yet to confirm). All six dolls were produced with the three different gem styles but never varying from their body colouring, just like Galoob.
The publicity images used on the backs of packaging pictures Sparkle Heart twice and misses out Dazzle (I'm pretty sure they should be named this way around as all of the other Blue Box dolls have their names jumbled up from Galoob's - an educated guess as Blue Box didn't put the doll's names on the front of the packaging!). One of each of the Blue Box dolls was sold with their release of playsets too.
