I'm looking for a pink Sparklins, I know they aren't exactly easy to find. I found one purple and one yellow, but I need pink to replace the one I have, she's getting really old, but I love her so much I don't want to loose her for good. Does anyone know where to find one?

YES!!! I had the purple bear. I slept with it every night... I would put it under my lamp so it would glow. I dont know what happened to it but I am STILL looking for one to this day. They are so hard to find!!

WOOO! I have a purple bear also. My favorite also. Got it when I turned 3 in Sept. 1990. Mystery solved! Mine is faded and a bit torn, but eBay has some for sale. *Happy*

Wow, when I posted this, I wasn't sure anyone would know what I was talking about! I still LOVE my purple bear that I've had since I was about 2. I named her Starii. ^^ And Kira, look on ebay! I got the pink bunny and yellow puppy on ebay so that I had all 3. There are some that are kinda expensive right now, but if you wait a bit, someone will eventually put up one for less. Good luck!

This was my favorite as a child too. It took me forever to ID the item but I do see them from time to time on Ebay. I usually can only find them if I ebay for mattel bunny, as they are never listed as sparklins. I dont know if anyone else remembers, or still has it, but they came with a ribbon collar with a scalloped heart and in the middle of it it stated" I love you" and glowed in the dark. This was my "lucky charm" growing up and was in my pocket as I ran across the state finish line my senior year of high school... They are very very difficult to find with the collar, and i honestly wouldnt mind a replacement collar, as my velcro is long gone... please email me if anyone knows of where to get a replacement collar jens_52@hotmail.com Thanks!

My little sister who is now a student at University of Florida has three Sparklins (Nicknamed Baby Ears). They are her most prized possession and I do not know what she would do with out them. I just found out today what they are actually called and was curious if there are any other similar toys being made today?

My daughter was given the pink PJ Sparkles when she was born 19 years ago,by her Grandmother. She named it Rabbie. Aubree has carried Rabbie and still does every day of her life. This Christmas her Grandmother found this one on line and purchased it for her to put up for her daughter one day. Aubree really likes the new one but says it will never be loved as much as she loves Rabbie.

I have the pink one, I named her Glowy (wasn't very imaginative at the ripe age of 2) and over the years, I cut off all her bangs, her tag, and her frilly lace on the chest. I completely forgot that she had a charm necklace until I read some of these posts. I wish I could find the other colors. She's absolutely the ONLY item I have left from my baby years and I don't know how I've hung onto her for so long. It's very frustrating not being able to find any others on the internet. I'd give my whole rainbow brite collection to get the other pj sparklins. sad, huh.

I'm searching for the a yellow bunny... Thinking it could be the puppy I was thinking about though. I had one when I was little and called her star bunny. If anyone has any info on where I can get one my email is sbuff2010@gmail.com

I'm 22 and I still have my yellow bunny. I named her Starry when I was a kid. Originality, anyone? =P She sits on my bed and in my chair. :] She's always been one of my favorites, which is evidenced by the unwashable general dirty look she's reached, lol.

I have the pink bunny (birthday present when I was 4 back in 1990) and the yellow bunny (birthday present when I was 14 in 2000) and now I'm desperately looking for the purple bunny before my 24th birthday next year!! I keep telling everyone that I can remember there being a purple one but no one believed me, I'm so glad I've managed to find proof that a purple one exists!! If anyone can find one on ebay could they email me at strawberrysnowling@hotmail.com thanks!

I had the purple one and my sisters had the yellow and pink ones.... I just got the feeling of missing it and wondering what happened to it... it helped me sleep many nights
Kc - September 08, 2009 - Report this comment
I have the yellow one still! I got her when I was 4 and named her Glower. I tortured my mom every night by making her hold it up to the light making sure to "get all the stars" so she would glow all night. This by far was my favorite childhood toy. Ebay seems to have only pink and purple ones though.

Ok so I have the purple bear...ive had it ever since i can remember but never knew what it was or where it came from. anytime I would ask my parents about it they always said they had no idea who gave it to me... i got curious and came upon this site. yay! :) I still have it and my husband thinks its ugly because its faded and worn out. i keep telling him its not ugly it just been loved. :) anyway glad to know what it is at last. would love to find another one that is in better condition for my soon to be little girl.

I had a yellow bunny that I have had since I was 1. I used it to help me sleep while my husband is deployed to Iraq. I just came home the other day and found that my husbands dog ate her head. If any one knows where I may find another PLEASE E-mail me at yella_hair@yahoo.com I would love you for life!

Hi I have a sister and our mother gave us both a sparlin when we were little. My mother died last year in our house fire and my sisters sparklin booboo was burned. This was the most treasured thing my mother had ever given to her. It went every where with her. It was the purple bear. This christmas is going to very hard for us and I would really LOVE to find another one that I could give to my sister. Does anyone know where I can get another booboo from. I am willing to pay up to $50 for her. If anyone knows, PLEASE email me at rhonda1211@hotmail.com it would mean a lot to her. Thankyou for your time.

By luck I found a Sparklins Yellow Bunny at my local thrift store for $1. My daughter had the purple bear when she was a baby and has since misplaced it.

If anyone knows where I could posibly find the bear for a decent price please contact me at syndil_1972@yahoo.com. I am willing to pay up to $100 and sorry the bunny is NOT for sale. Thanks

My fiancee just bought the purple bear from Ebay for me. I still have my original bear from shortly after I was born (I believe they were made in 1989?) although it's face, arms, and legs are gone - I had a very destructive dog between elementary & middle school. I still keep that Ted in my bed, it helps me sleep at night. But I am very excited to be getting my "original" version to hold onto forever. Just keep checking Ebay & various auction sites. They are pretty pricey for good to great conditions - The one we bought was $200! However, I believe it was money well spent for something you love & cherish, even if it is just a doll.

Omg I love you, do you know how many years it took me to find this doll, my mom got me about 3 of them as a child and I loved it since then. I really did, I had the purple teddy bear, and the yellow puppie one!! Growing up I never really seen them in store shelves. I was born in 90, I've always been looking for them!!!! I never knew what they were called but now I know!!! Thanks

I have been looking for a Mattel PJ SPARKLES Sparklins Pink Stars Bunny plush from 1989 for over 15 years. My 2nd oldest daughter, who is now 21, had one and left it on a store bench, never to be seen again. I've been looking ever since. Her bunny was named Pink Baby. My email is jennifersjunk123@gmail.com if you know where I could find one, preferably new. It would be the best 22nd birthday present for her ever! Thanks!

I LOVED my Yellow Puppy one that I got as a kid. My mom gave it away sadly and now I'm trying to find another one. I hope I can find one. I always seem to be missing out on the Puppy ones. I know there's a couple of bunny versions that are on ebay right now.

in 1991 when the first released the yellow PJ Sparklin Bunny I wok up to owning one after needing surgery at the age of two. I named her "Shimmers" and had her with me through my childhood never leaving my side. Unfortunately After a nasty divorce between my parents that had me ping ponging back and forth across the country between them she disappeared and the phoenix airport from me and was never seen again. I am looking for the YELLOW BUNNY if anyone has one or knows of one I would love to try and buy it I have seen them range online from 12.99 - 275.00 and will come up with as much as I can for her. please email me @ Loterbat@gmail.com

I have the pink bunny sparklin. I have had her since I was a year old, so she definitely shows the signs of age. Sparkles as I've always known her was my favorite childhood companion. I have three now, another not-so-aged copy of my Sparkles, and a yellow bunny. I'll always love my original, Sparkles, most of all though.
