Rainbow Brite dolls with Sprites property Siri_Mae_doll

In keeping with Rainbow Brite’s colourful world on TV, Hallmark licenced the characters to Mattel to create a line of 80s toys that recently had a reboot in Hallmark stores. The original line of yard-haired dolls in 80s-style garb included Rainbow Brite, the Colour Kids and all their Sprites in several sizes and spun out to include larger dolls and the accompanying horses. Miniatures can still be found on eBay though these are most common in the UK and rarer items such as Baby Brite’s star baby carrier and the Colour Kids dune-buggy like car fetch a good price amongst collectors. Foreign issue dolls such as Moonglow and the Dress-up version of Rainbow Brite are treasures amongst show fans. In some cases the toys didn’t quite follow the show or predated the show. For example, Tickled Pink was envisioned by Mattel with a horse named Flutter and once the show came out, the Tickled Pink/Flutter set wasn’t produced; rather the horse was renamed as Sunriser. Tickled Pink also orignally had a tulip mark on her cheek and belt which were removed for production.
