Awhile back I started to get interested in Skydancer Dolls. My and my sister had a few when we were young and after seeing them again browsing through old toy commercials on youtube I wanted to get some for my collection.
At the moment I have bought 3 lots from ebay and one lancher and two dolls from a member of MLPArena. I also bought a MIB from Ebay.
There are not that much information on these dolls (what I found so far anyway) but here is a bit of story:
The Skydancer Dolls were released in the mid-1990 and came to be a quite popular toy line. The toy consist on one doll with faom wings that you place in the lancer. Than you pulled the string on the lancer/base to make the doll fly up in the air.
The dolls came in different skin tones, different dress colors and with different hair coulor and style. The same goes for the base: they came in different shapes and different colors.
They also made theme-skydancers such as Christmas dolls and Farytale Princess dolls that came with their very own prins charming.
The toy line grew and they even made mini-Skydancers wich obvious were smaller Skydancers in different themes: some were princesses and some were animals.
Some of the Skydancers came with castle shaped bases that than grew into an own toy line: Trendmaster StarCastle (a Toy similar to Polly Pocket).
But in 2000 the manufacture recalled the toys after over 100 reports of injuries, some a sever as eye damage and broken ribs (dont ask me how the later one could have happened, I dont get it myself)
The toy line later got reproduced with a new look in 2005, at the same time they also relished a line marketed for boys boys called Dragon Flyz.
The 2005-Skydancer dolls did not hit the roof as the first line did but yet again now 2012-2013 they have relished a new line.
There was also a animated show called Skydancers were the girls and boys were ballerinas that made 28 Episodes, and in 2006 they relished a game to GameBoy Advance
And that the information that I got so far! Please correct me if I'm wrong since I am new to the world of Skydancers.
As I sad: I do have a few dolls by now, but I have not taken any photos of the last arrivals. And since I don't what to photobomb right now I will show the the two sets that I got so far.
The dolls and bases came in different shapes and colors and they were some that was swapped up: The same base came with a few different colored dolls and you could get the same doll with different bases. That makes them hard to match up. I can get a grip on them if you starting to look at MIB but than again you can never know for sure if one doll din't came in an other set.
But of course there are some exepctions as the special sets and the mini dolls, and that is what I'm going to show you today!
On to the next one!
Thanks for visiting!
