    In 2002, it was AOL's #1 kid website.

    The website featured a broad range of Olsen fan stuff, but also chat rooms, fashion tips, and lifestyle pieces. Today's fitness tip? Do exercises in the bathtub.

    Here's a list of fashion tips...let's explore that third one, shall we?

    VERY IMPORTANT OLSEN FASHION TIP: WALK AROUND WITH YOUR WALKMAN

    Another fashion tip about colors: "Have a friend hold different colors up to your face and ask which colors look best for you."

    There was a Q&A section where the twins would actually respond to your questions!

    They were also e-commerce pioneers! Look at this cool online store.

    Beach balls with the click of a mouse! So easy.

    Or you could get this really cool necklace.

    Obvi, enter this Pizza Hut sweepstakes.

    Um, wut? And an interview with Gavin Rossdale? (The twins also apparently had a Q&A with R.L. Stine, but it was in a video format that appears to have vanished.)

    Here's the 2001 site map. So much fun!

    And here's what happens when you try to go to mary-kateandashley.com today...

    It redirects you to the Olsenboye, the J.C. Penney line they designed. Although it appears they've stopped this project as the 2012 collection has come and go.
