"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.

Pretty Scents

I'm not sure how many sets were produced. Back packaging suggests there were three styles of launcher (butterfly, bubble bath and heart).

Butterfly Launchers

There were three butterfly launcher sets, which smelt of watermelon.

There were three bubble bath launcher sets, which smelt of bubblegum.
