Remember these guys? They’re like the equivalent of Transformers for individuals with a softer, more fanciful imagination.

Those with sharp memories will recall that the Magic Garden kits included little cardboard cutouts of mountains, trees and grass (treated with a mysterious solution) that you could set up on a tray. After dousing the cardboard with magical liquid, bright blooms began to grow. Soon you had a fuzzy Japanese garden, complete with nuclear-pink cherry blossoms, acid-green grass and a snowy mountain peak. Now it reminds us simultaneously of The Point!, cotton candy, toxic waste and clown hair. Awesome.
