"Ahaha!
Tough one! According to my harrap's shorter dictionnary, poppet : chéri, petit chou, mamour. LOL!
I personnally would translate "my poppets" by "mes piou-pious", that's how I call my pupils in drama class!
:-)"
mes piou-pious!!!

That sounds nice!!! :D

As there is not an exact translation I doubted a lot how to put it. Especially the words from the heart can be so various. In Argentina:
Poppet as in doll: Muñeco (boy) Muñeca (girl), diminutive: muñequita, muñequito. Can be used for children that are very cute.

Poppet as in sweetheart: Tesoro, querido, amor, dulce, precioso. The fist one meaning “treasure” is the closest the use that I see is applied.
