Behold the shocking greatness that is Rama Llama! Rama Llama is probably one of the coolest 80s toys that I own, it was a collaboration between two of the 80s greatest franchises, My Little Pony and Jem and the Holograms, plus it was mail order only! Years ago, when I was re-collecting a bunch of my childhood toys, I found this little wonder (who had completely alluded my childhood radar) still in the original bag and snapped it up. Here you can see it triumphantly thrust towards the heavens over my newly painted sky blue guest room wall, victory!
Well that was dramatic. Anyway, as you can plainly see, Rama Llama has an adorable face, the head and legs are pink plastic with lavender highlights (like the hooves and nose) and the body is covered in hot pink faux fur. The reason I bought her MIB (aside from that being exciting to me as a nerd) is that the fur just tended not to make the 20+ year travel through time without getting horribly mauled.
Rama Llama also came with some totally sweet accessories: a blanket and a llama shaped comb, which is the greatest thing ever. Well, it’s at least one of the greatest combs to ever come with a toy from the 80s, and I’m completely sure on that point. Part of me really feels like I should take Rama Llama out of the bag, but she’s been in there for so long … ack! the collector dork inside me just won’t let me do it.
So what do you think of her? Have you seen her before or is this your first exposure to the greatness that is Rama Llama?
PS: Rama Llama is not for sale, sorry!
