What's Old is Cool
When I was a little girl, I loved Strawberry Shortcake. I had a "moterbike" and sleeping bag and the doll with the scented red hair. This is what she looked like back in the 80's when she was a friend of mine.
And here is little Miss Strawberry Shortcake now. All jazzed up for today's kids in jeans and a pullover instead of her sweet little dress with her striped stockings. SS is back and little girls love her. But, she's a different, all made over Shortcake .
Another "comeback" is Care Bears. I'm not sure how much they've changed or if they have at all but, I know the movie is cute. The old one and the new one.
My Little Pony is also a craze that began when I was little. I had some of those little plastic ponies with the sparkly, long, colorful hair. They came with the little brushes. This is what the 80's logo looked like
The new logo.
Other things I loved when I was a kid:
She'Ra Princess of Power. She rocked. We (my little brother and me) loved her because my mom's name is Sheila so we'd say "Sheeeeee-la"! We were little.
I thought Rainbow Brite was AWESOME!! She was, obviously, colorful and had powers and such. And look how cute she is with the blonde ponytail and the stars... I don't know if she's "comeback". Mommys, you'll have to let me know.
Cabbage Patch Kids. Oh, my how did I really love CBKs. I was a baby doll fanatic. My mamma gave me a baby every year for Christmas. I loved the Cabbage Patch Newborns most of all with the powdery smelling bald heads. They came with the birth certificates with those awful names! I had a Cabbage Patch Kid with a purple dress and blonde curly (wavy) hair. They still have these. The picture above is a little girl waiting to be adopted at Toys R Us. I just may go and adopt her!
