Remember Sweet Secrets?

Do you remember Sweet Secret toys? I absolutely LOVED the Puppy Sweet Secret I was given by one of our neighbours at the time. The puppy’s head and legs folded into the shell and you were left with a gem looking case that you could wear as a brooch or a necklace. 1980’s toys at their BEST!

I’ve become nostalgic of late, and I recently added a retro Barbie to our collection. It was in my online travels that I found Sarah from Ghost of The Doll. If you’re a toy lover like I am, and are especially fond of toys from yesteryear, you will find loads of detailed information cataloging different toys on the website. It’s fantastic!

Sarah is from England, and she started collecting old dolls and toys from charity shops and car boot sales.  Over the years, her collection grew, so much so Sarah realised she needed to sell some of her collection on (thanks to eBay). This is when identifying the toys correctly become important. As her collected toys disappeared to new owners around the world, the Ghost of The Doll website became a way for Sarah to collect dolls without the clutter.  I asked Sarah if she had any Sweet Secrets materials I could share and take a look at this! 

About Sweet Secrets

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 playlets. – Ghost of The Doll.
