"The most brushably beautiful pets of all!"

Sweetie Pups and Sweetie Kitties were produced by Hasbro from 1989-91. There were two distinct lines of the Pups and Kitties; the original line, which was quite realistic, and the Party Time line which used a bright rainbow of colours. There was also series of Baby Pubs and two playsets released.

Sweetie Pups ~ Set 2

There were eleven Sweetie Pups released in the second series, with eight new breeds added and three returning from the first series. From the subtle change in box design I also think Toy Poodle was re-released, although it is not shown on the back of the box.

Each puppy came with a rosette shaped hairclip, ribbon and either a comb or brush as before. The hairclip and comb were the same as the first series, but the brush was a new design. Of the new releases I have never seen the Saint Bernard or Samoyed boxed or loose.
