"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.

"Push Swan and Pegasus and the Sky Dancers twirl and dance. Pull the magic star and the Sky Dancers fly!"

These two sets came with rolling launchers.

Primrose has a flower bodice, like the flower launcher dolls. She also had sparkly hair.

In Italy she was called Raggio di Luna (Moon Beam), which was also the name of one of Italy's moon launcher dolls.

The Japanese release had a different coloured doll. The launcher appears to be the same.

There was also a black doll sold with the pegasus. I don't know hew name yet.
