Top 25 "It" products of all time: #18 -- My Little Pony (take 1)


Note- Two of our bloggers shared a passion for this It product, so we asked both of them to share their memories.

As a kid, my Saturday morning cartoon line-up included The Smurfs, Pee-wee's Playhouse and My Little Pony. (Oh, how I miss those days!)

Not only did a sense of right and wrong come from those shows, the dolls and toys I begged my mom for were a great supplement to my childhood imagination. A shining, glitter-covered case in point: My Little Pony.

I must have had an army of them as a kid. Those sparkling, four-legged plastic gems, with their soft, silky hair were as fun to play with as Barbie and her Corvette. You had to have them with you in the bathtub, you could braid their hair with the help of the plastic brush that came with each one, and it got addicting collecting every new big-eyed pony, since each had its own unique and a crazily colorful design on the hip signifying the meaning of its name.
