There's probably no one who reads this that isn't my friend on Facebook but this was an interesting conversation that we had about dolls versus other toys and action figures.
Ed: Plus you can't fight Barbies.
Jen: We didn't really fight Barbies.
Ed: You can fight My Little Ponies.
Jen: My Little Ponies are peaceful, Quaker-type animals. They don't fight.
Ed: The ponies lived in a castle. Castles require wealth. Where ever there is a differential of wealth, there's fighting.
Apparently My Little Ponies had a much more complicated dynamic than I was aware. My ponies just played in the bathtub! I didn't really like Barbies that much. I was more into Pound Puppies, MLP and my stuffed animals. Stef had a cool Barbie condo though, which made Barbie a little more interesting to me!
I wonder what my kid will play with...
