Beauty Flashback: Sweet Secrets

In the '80s, Transformers and Go-Bots were king. I loved playing with those toys, shifting them from one thing to the other. But toy companies must have thought that girls wouldn't want to play with race-car robots. So instead, we were offered toys like Sweet Secrets, a collection of kiddy grooming products that turned into dolls. Check this old commercial, which features an oppressive brother who, inexplicably leaves and returns with the world's longest mullet.

Oh my lord, I forgot about these!!!! My sister and I definitely had a few of them! I'm pretty sure they were around in the mid-80s, maybe 1985/1986.

I definitely owned both the comb and brush, and I'm sure neither did anything for my hair. :) Thanks for the nostalgia!
