I was a HUGE fan of My Little Ponies when I was a kid. Had a whole herd of them. Still do, in fact, at my mom's house, and my girls play with them when we go to visit.
When my first was a baby in 2003, I got her her own Little Pony. They changed a bit, had eyes twice the size they had been in the 80's, but it was still cute. We now have a herd of those at my house.
Then a couple years ago, they changed again. Seriously, why fix what ain't broke? They had the ginormous, malnourished eyes with oversized heads, little bodies and chunky legs. I think we got one for a gift, and my kids have relegated it to being a "baby" pony. Because what adult pony would have eyes taking over 50% of their face?
Now they've changed them again. Dude, they don't even look like ponies now.
