Today, Ralene Burke is launching her new website, and she is doing an awesome writerly giveaway. I mention this, because I had a little hand in helping her–and my hubby as well. So stop by, say hi, and help her celebrate! 🙂
And now, for something that’s been on my mind of late. Especially, since my little girl turned three and wanted a My Little Pony themed birthday party.
What has Hasbro done to My Little Ponies?
These are not the real deal. When I was a child, I LOVED My Little Pony. Had a few, wanted a few more, but then I grew up. Had to put away childish things, ya know. I’ve always regretted my decision to give away my ponies–that and throwing away the twisted root I found that looked exactly like the wand from Willow.
Why did I do it? I have no idea. Perhaps I thought they’d always be around. I could get them later when I had a little girl. Well, I have a little girl now, but these? These are not My Little Pony. Sorry.
I don’t know why I can’t embrace the new alien ponies. Maybe others can’t stand the classic version. Or we just like what we are used to, our first experience.
Perhaps it’s because I’m reluctant to embrace the new stuff. Like iPhones for one. My hubby had to drag me kicking and screaming to the store. That is until I finally got one. Oh my goodness! What an amazing cool device that sucks away your time. I just have to see what’s happening on Facebook or Twitter. Ha! The Digital Bubble as my hubby would like to call it.
And don’t even mention the games!
I tease my hubby all the time about his addiction to the phone, but at least my addiction is not done during dinner or when someone is trying to talk to me or every time I turn around. It’s just first thing in the morning and the last thing at night and maybe at lunch. You know, the dragons have to eat! And their little homes only hold so much coin. Speaking of which, I should check on my dragon egg that is about to hatch! DragonStory anyone?
So I have a new goal for my bucket list. Collect the original My Little Pony, at least just the ones I want. Like Firefly. Hello Ebay. And then I can play ponies with my little girl. 🙂
So what say you? Are you a classic My Little Pony or the new one? Not a pony fan…what was your favorite childhood toy? What are some things you’ve let go of and wished you had held on to?
