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

Play Make-up

Sweet Secrets Play Make-up consisted of six sets of real cosmetic items which turned into dolls or animals. There were six sets produced, each containing the same four characters (dog, cat, bear and doll) except the colognes, which had three dolls. Second series characters were the same as the first in every way except with new patterns.

Lip Stick

"Fun friend necklace... becomes a flavoured lipstick!"

There were eight lipstick charms produced, four original in each series. The lipstick and nail polish tops look to be the same, so when not attached to their cosmetics it is hard to know from which set it came.

Vanity Sets

Pretty Packs were available in four colour co-ordinated sets in the first series. It's hard to tell from the back packaging image what was included, and I have found next to nothing on these sets.

The second series vanity sets contained the same mirror, comb and brush playsets as found on the Playsets page, but made in different colours and with different shaped charms in them (which were also sold separately. I've found them loose, so can confirm the charms were not all heart shaped lip gloss as the back packaging pictures below show.

The brush and comb handles are missing from the below image.

Beauty Lights Compacts

"Really lights up!"

There were four Beauty Lights Compacts produced in 1988. The heart shaped compact would open up to reveal a mirror and two combs, one for little girls to use and one for the doll. The mirror had little LED lights around it which lit up.
