Sparkles was born and raised in Thousand Acre Woods, New Brunswick, Canada, by Christopher Honeysuckle, a sailor, and Nadle Honeysuckle (née Ladle), a semi-always happy honey grabber of action. Sparkles' ancestors were very small and lived in a grandfather clock in Romania.
In secret, however, he lives a double life as Kirby, a member of an all- weird creature monster fighting incorporation known as the B.B. (Butter Building). Many entrances to this incorporation are usually found all around the house; such as HAL Laboratory, most notably the couch that the boys (Wyatt and Crash) sit on and many other everyday objects that seem to elude the Bernstein Family's attention. He engages in daily battles with King Dedede, a giant penguin who desires to take over Dream Land with obscure contraptions. When this happens, Crash says, "Sparkles! Are you there?! Neigh if you can hear me! Nooo! (sobbing) Sparkles! (sobbing) Sparkles."
