Happy Birthday, Cobie Smulders: A Robin Sparkles celebration

Cobie Smulders celebrates her 32nd birthday on April 3, 2014. While there may be many ways to celebrate this fine actress known for "The Avengers" and "How I Met Your Mother," it's pretty much impossible to celebrate without a young woman named Robin Sparkles.

For those not well-versed in "How I Met Your Mother" lore, Robin Sparkles is the teen pop star alter-ego of Robin Scherbatsky. She was once a huge hit in Canada, singing classics like "Let's Go to the Mall" and "Sandcastles in the Sand."

Because these wonderful creations are something anyone should be proud of, celebrate Smulders' birthday with Robin Sparkles' greatest hits! Happy Birthday!
