Reliving my Childhood

Pickle is now 26 months and full of life.  She's into everything, absorbing it all.  Lately she's been very into playing with Pretty's toys: Barbies, Lala Loopsy and my favourite, My Little Pony.

In 2008, Hasbro's My Little Pony, celebrated it's 25th anniversary by releasing "retro" ponies.  These sets contained ponies that looked like the originals from 25 years earlier...the ponies I played with myself.  My BFF had bought one such set for Pretty, for her fourth birthday.  Pretty wasn't nearly as excited by them as I was!

Once again, through Pickle, I'm able to relive my childhood while playing ponies.  I love seeing what adventures Pickle will dream up for Blue Belle, Butterscotch and Cotton Candy.  I only hope that someday my girls will have just as much fun playing ponies with their own children as I have playing with them.

  1. I loved My Little Pony when I was a kid. Seeing these make me nostalgic for those simpler and carefree times. I hope I have girls one day to help me relive my childhood.
