Mirror80 kicks off “My Little Pony Week” by spotlighting a truly amazing blog with a genuine appreciation for these toy collectibles…
Retrophilia (translated version here) features all things vintage–from fashion to textiles to toys, and more! You can imagine my joy when I realized that the blog has a special ’80s section (translated) filled with photos and descriptions of treasures like Japanese porcelain (Memphis Group-style), fabulous lighting, bedding featuring abstract designs, and fashion finds and photos . The Swedish writer of Retrophilia frequently visits flea markets and chronicles the joy of each new discovery and purchase.
But don’t visit Retrophilia without stopping by the My Little Pony page (translated), which celebrates an extensive collection of these toy equine friends–including pictures of colorful sets like the neon-hued Rockin’ Beats from 1990 and the always interesting Colorswirls.
Thanks, Retrophilia, for adding to our love of ’80s design!
And to all of you My Little Pony fans, stay tuned for our next blog post, which will pay homage to these vibrant Hasbro-manufactured collectibles and pair them with fashion finds that reflect their color and sparkle!
