About a week before Christmas I sent a Buzzfeed article to Isaac titled “50 Things You Will Never Get for Christmas Again.” I (semi) jokingly told him that we were over if he didn’t find a way to give me something on that list for Christmas. I also hinted that #31, the Sky Dancer, was my absolute favorite toy as a little girl. To be honest, I hadn’t thought about her in awhile but seeing her beautiful coarse pink hair, her majestic wings, and her dolphin throne flooded me with sweet memories.
Well, I guess Isaac wants to keep me around because on Christmas he surprised me with this beauty:
A 2012 version of the Sky Dancer! I’ll take it.
So Christmas afternoon, my way-too-old-and-manly-to-be-playing-with-a-tinkerbell-toy fiance and I spent a good 30 minutes shooting the ‘ol girl into the sky. It was just as much fun as I remember. It also got serious and a little bit dangerous really quickly.
Isaac liked her, too
Then things got weird
I’d say this Christmas was a glaring success. Sky Dancer once again made a little (big) girl’s Christmas day full of fun, laughter, and a minor asthma attack from all of the running and jumping.
