There's a special memory I have when I was little of me and my mom. I was in elementary school, and I got all A's on one of my report cards. So my mom said she would take me to Toys R Us to get a My Little Pony. I can remember picking a pony at the store and afterwards going to McDonald's to celebrate. I got a McNugget Happy Meal and my new pony got to sit at the table with us. I can picture the exact booth we sat in at that McDonald's back home. It's one of my absolute favorite memories. I had a lot of wonderful toys when I was little. And I love it when a special toy sneaks into my head so I can think of all the times I spent playing with it. Mostly, my Ponies weren't "played" with but rather had their hair brushed constantly. I *loved* brushing their manes and tails.

Here is a pic of the pony I got in my memory when we went to McDonald's. Her name is Lofty!

This was another pony I loved. I played with her so much her cutie mark wore off. Her name is Sunnybunch.

And now let me introduce you to Hula Hula! She was my all time favorite because she had the SOFTEST HAIR. It never tangled and was soooo silky. I was so jealous of her hair (mine was crazy frizzy) .. I loved brushing it and was so envious of her multiple colors :) I guess My Little Pony influenced my hair styling choices! :D
There's a bunch of other toys I absolutely adored as a child. And I am so thankful my mom would get them for me. So as I think of awesome memories I will probably make more posts like this one. I also want to mention that I am really hooked on the new My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It's the cutest show and all the characters are so unique. Since I am not sure if my mom kept my old ponies, I have started a new collection with the new series. So someday I can make a post on that, too. ^.^
Do you have a favorite childhood toy?
