These have been around since my 12-yo was about 2-ish. Typical of me, I thought the first ones were prettier, and the bases were not evocative of tapeworms--they were ust flowers or somesuch.

For the true icing on this revolting cake, you must have the Skydancers VIDEOS, in which they were prittyprittyprincesses who were "disguised" as cheerleaders.

CHEERLEADERS. Ugh.

squid

THEY COME WITH THE VIDEOS AND WE HAD TO WATCH IT AT THE PARTY. I AM STILL BARFING. YES I KNOW I AM TYPING IN ALL CAPS--IT IS MERITED.

Jenijen

Oh! They have those in the exam room at the kids' pedi's office. I guess if you are gonna put out an eye or vomit, that is the place to be. . .

Nire

They've, in fact, been around since at least '88, 'cause that's when I remember getting mine.

But the base was just a rounded mound with flowers decorating it. Not a tapeworm pony... I feel kind of cheated. ;-)

elswhere

I will pay you to not ever let my child know about these.

BTW-- are you coming to Seattle? Wanna stay at our place? We're going to Vancouver that weekend, probably.

g.

badgerbag

Lea
