The Sunshine Family dolls are the white doll friends of the Happy family, originally came with Steve (dad), Steffie (mom) and Baby Sweets. Grandma and Grandpa Sunshine were sold separately from the "main" family.

In the last year they were produced 1978, a new version was released where Baby Sweets had "Grown Up" to be a little girl, Sweets Sunshine and she got a new baby sibling.

1974 Mattel Happy Family Dolls

Hal, Hattie, baby Hon - Grandpa & Grandma Happy

The Happy Family dolls are the black doll friends of the above Sunshine Family, using the same doll molds. Just like the Sunshine Family, they originally came with Hal (dad), Hattie (mom) and Baby Hon. The Happy Grandparents were also sold separately.

Baby Hon grew up to be a little girl called Hon and got a new baby sibling in 1978. The little girl versions of Sweets Sunshine and especially Hon Happy are probably the hardest to find of the Happy family dolls because they were only produced for about a year.
