This Is One Sexy Pony
VH-1 is at it again. All this week they are counting down the 100 most popular toys on a show called "I Love Toys". If you loved the 70's, 80's and the 90's you'll love "toys". A toybox staple started the countdown at #100, the "Magic 8 Ball". It was great watching various celebrities playing with the mystrious oracle but my favorite was Ricky Martin. Wasn't he too busy with Menudo to play with toys? I was trying to finish a book while watching "toys" but my attention was grabbed as they announced #85, "My Little Pony". I am a big fan of the ponies because my sister and I can boast having had the ORIGINAL ponies. Actually mine was a unicorn but that is neither here nor there. Unfortunately, in the frivolity of our youth we must have thrown them out or sold them at a yardsale. Feeling the emptiness of the missing ponies, brought me to E-bay a year or so ago. I found a woman who had both of the ponies my sister and I had, I knew it must be fate, I had to buy them. My sister had "Snuzzle" shown in the picture above and I had a unicorn "Glory" shown below. Who knows, maybe the ones I bought on Ebay were the ones my sister and I had back in 1983. I'm looking foward to the rest of the week to see what other treasures make their list.
