"They really dance and fly in the air!"

Sky Dancers were produced by Galoob from 1994-2000 when they were recalled for causing various injuries. They were a large series of ballerina-style dolls with foam wings under their arms, plus a "launcher" or stand. When the string on the launcher was pulled the doll would spin up and away with her wings opening up to catch flight. There was also a 27 episode animation series in 1996-97.

They were sold in US, Japan, UK and other countries in Europe. In Italy they were produced by GIG (Ballerine Volanti), and Japan by Tsukuda Original (Fairy Princess). Japan also had some colour variations.

The line was re-issued in 2005, and again in 2013. There were a few "knockoff" brands too.

Fashion Accessories

I've found two different lines of children's fashion accessories so far.

There was also jewellery, clothing and various bags.

Secret Surprise

"Now you can feel like a Sky Dancer when you wear these Secret Surprises on your hands. These delicate gloves feature a jewel charm which opens up on each hand, but only one reveals a secret surprise. You never know what you are going to get!"

There were six pairs of Secret Surprise gloves. They were produced by Happiness Express Inc., under licence from Galoob in 1995. A press release from May 1995 also mentions ballet slippers but I haven't come across any images.

Sky Tails

There were various packs of childrens hair accessories produced by Galoob. Each set came with a comb.
