Ummmm, where is Ribbon Dancer? I also deeply envied my best friend’s Lisa Frank collection. My parents were all New-Agey so aside from a Giga Pet from my godmother, the Addy books (the ONLY black American Girl), my Dear Diary when I finally got my mum to cave, and the magenta Moto Razr and Uggs I bought in college, I had to do without a lot of these because, like white flour and Nintendo, my parents thought they were bad for kids. The Barbie Power Wheels Car still hurt the most though.
