    So last night, I tucked my little girl into bed with her DVD of choice for the night, G1 Season 2, Part I. I then retired to the living room to catch up on my current addiction, True Blood.

    After about a half-hour, I'm noticing I'm starting to hear Megatron and a lot of "pew-pew" coming out of her room. So, acting like my father (God help me), I get up determined to tell her to turn that stuff down!

    I'm halfway to her room when all of I sudden I hear "AWE-SOME!" (whispered loudly) come out of her room...

    I had no idea what episode she was watching, and at that point I didn't care. I just smiled and said what the hell, and went back to True Blood. I love raising a Transformers fangirl!

    When I saw the title of this thread, I expected it to be about "These damn kids are ruining the toy collecting hobby!"

    I like the actual content much better. Always warms my heart to see that there's another generation of Transformers fans. :)

    Pretty awesome! Hope my I get that at some point with my just shy of 1 yr old. I keep trying with him though, some G1 stuff and the real movie, the 86 one lol

    On the other hand, my 7-8 yr old nephew asked for the rest of the G1 collection for Christmas since he only had Season 2 Part 1. His Uncle made damn sure he got them all too :) 

    I have managed to infect my now 21 yr old nephew all the way down to my 7-8 yr old nephew with G1(6 of them total, 1 girl in there). I am now turning my evil machinations towards my own son.

    That is awesome. Robot hero's and Classics Megatron and Barbies don't go very well together, though.

    Thanks all :)  I might have to post up some pics of her opening Classics Galvatron when he shows up today - she's very excited to see him.

    LOL. Her mother likes to complain that I'm corrupting her with my Transformers, but then I point to the Justin Bieber shirts, the Disney Princesses and makeup as evidence she's girly enough :D

    Great story, thanks for the smile.

    Your daughter is a cutie and I must admit I've never seen Transformers mixed in with so many "girlie" things.

    Great job in inadvertantly, or maybe it was a concious decision, teaching your daughter the beauty of balance.

    Thats awesome!
    My Oldest. Loves G1 or at least she tells me she does (I think it may be more about Daddy time but what ever either way I will take it) we watch He-man, She-ra, Transformers each night on Teletoon retro.
    My youngest does not like the cartoons but does like they toys. She told me yesterday "Daddy I love Princesses, Pony's, Barbies and Robots" So Transformers are number 4 but they made the I love cut lol.
