She was a doll I wanted really badly as a kid. My mom told me I was too old to have her. So I watched the commercials and dreamed about her. I guess my mom was really worried about me because later when it was just the two of us the following conversation happened:
Mom: You know I was talking to your aunt the other day and your cousin Meghan played with dolls until she was much older than you. So it's normal, there's nothing wrong with you.
Me: Um, thanks Mom, I never thought anything was wrong with me.
Mom: (Sigh, followed by disappointed look)
I looked up PJ Sparkles on the internet just now, and you know how old I was when she came out? Nine, just saying, nine.
