Meet Martin & Sylvia!

Martin and Sylvia were our very first Sparkle characters. We love them dearly and we know you will, too — if you haven't met them already. These two are kind, compassionate, adventurous, and fun. They are always ready to explore new places and meet new people.

We've gathered some fun facts about Martin and Sylvia to help your get to know them a little better.
