Hillary Buckholtz Thinks My Little Ponies Shouldn’t Look Like Bratz Dolls

As a way to cope with the onset of adulthood, Hillary Buckholtz has created a Tumblr blog that’s essentially a collection of Internet finds for long-forgotten toys, movies and snack foods. As she puts it, I’m Remembering! comes from a time “before I got a best friend and then was jealous of her, before I had a crush and my heart got broken, before we had real grades in school.” And they certainly don’t make ’em like they used to, says Buckholtz, as, below, she has pitted some toys of yesteryear with those of today.

Slutty My Little Ponies never had a chance.

My Little Pony

THEN                                               NOW

The new ones look like Bratz dolls…they’re really obnoxious. They’re gross.”

Alvin and the Chipmunks

THEN                              NOW

[My niece and nephew] even watch some of the same stuff [as I did]…I got them The Chipmunk Adventure, which is this great movie starring Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Jello Pudding Pops

THEN                                          NOW

“They stopped making them for a while and they brought them back, but they’re a totally different recipe.”

Tangy Taffy

THEN                                                       NOW

“Laffy Taffy took the place of Tangy Taffy, but it’s just not the same.”

What do you think?
