“The mini doll market is booming again and Sweet Secrets offers girls something completely different,” stated Emma Sherski, Vivid’s licensing and marketing director.

Madballs is also set for January launch, again with opening price point sub £5 retail. Targeted at boys 5-9 years, the concept will be supported online and via licensing from property owner American Greetings and also backed by heavyweight TV advertising from Vivid.

Sherski added: “Madballs offers today’s boys something totally different from everything out there currently. Relaunching proven successful concepts with a new twist has worked so well for us and other companies in the recent past. Tamagotchi and Care Bears being notable recent successes.”
