Can you actually believe that it's been over thirty years since we fell in love with Hasbro's magical line of toys called My Little Pony?

I remember getting my first set of toys, and then the excitement that washed over me when the movie came out a few years later.

My Little Pony was introduced in the early 1980s as the successor to the company's earlier My Pretty Pony toyline. Unofficially known as the "Generation One" or "G1," these toys included a collection of six smaller and more colorful versions of the original ponies.

Every girl had these miniature figurines on their birthday and Christmas wishlists, and the company ended up garnering way more sales than initially projected. At the time, we got to play with Blue Bell, Minty, Butterscotch, Snuzzle, Blossom, and Cotton Candy, but as the ponies got more popular, new members were added to the crew.

Unfortunately, the new generation of ponies started to hog the spotlight, and the original group were forced out.

Thankfully, those of us who were around when they were first introduced have not forgotten about them, and now, to mark the 35th anniversary of the brand, the 1983 G1 ponies are making a comeback, so all eighties kids can enjoy a dose of nostalgia.

A lot of us grew up playing with our barbies. They were a way to explore the realms of our imagination and no matter what you think about Barbie's visual aesthetic, you've got to admit that being able to be creative with her story was pretty great for kids. Sure, her look has raised a lot of controversy, but the fact remains that a lot of us enjoyed playing with Barbies and had countless stories to go along with each one. I remember when I was a kid, one Christmas my parents brought my sister and I into the basement

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.


'Growing Pains' Stars Reunite To Reveal Their Favorite Memories From The Show We All Loved

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended. Alan Thicke was the amazing patriarch of the family, but it was the kids that we all cared about. Kirk Cameron's character, Mike, was stealing hearts, Tracy Gold's character, Carol, was inspiring students, and Jeremy Miller's character, Ben, was causing trouble, but we loved him anyway. Recently, the three iconic and original Seaver children got together to share some of their favorite moments, and it makes us
