7. Branching Out
"Brother for sale, Only fifty cents, Brother for sale, He's not a big expense." These adorable lyrics were from the song Brother for Sale by Mary-Kate and Ashley. It was the first project they did outside of Full House.
Although they weren't natural singers, the album ended up being a big hit with children, and it introduced the twins to a new market of fans.
8. Working Overtime
The Olsen twins were the hardest working children in Hollywood at the time. While filming Full House, they were also working on movies like To Grandmother's House We Go, Double Double Toil and Trouble, and How The West Was Fun.
Mary-Kate and Ashley's dad was now their manager, and he was working them as hard as he could because they were so popular.
9. Dualstar Productions Launches
Their films were major hits, and this allowed them to start their own production company known as Dualstar Productions. At just six years old they were the CEOs of their own company.
By starting their own company, the Olsen twins became the youngest producers in history. They are still CEOs of their production company almost 30 years later.
10. Inviting Mary-Kate And Ashley Into Our Homes
"You're invited! come on, we've got a lot to do!" If you grew up in the '90s, you would remember the many different slumber party themes from the Olsen twins video series You're Invited to Mary-Kate and Ashley's.
They also did some detective work in The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley. These videos were part of our childhoods, and they were a stepping stone for the twins' next projects.
11. Life After Full House
After Full House wrapped its final season, Mary-Kate and Ashley were able to do more with their production company, and devote more time to bigger projects.
They started releasing a steady stream of straight-to-VHS movies, including the wonderful Billboard Dad and Passport to Paris. It was also around this time that their first feature film, It Takes Two, was released.
12. Family Breakdown
Although they starred as part of a big happy family on Full House, the Olsen family was falling apart behind the scenes. In 1995, Mary-Kate and Ashley's parents divorced, and it was apparently because of the twins' success.
It was a difficult time for their family, and they became even more private about their personal lives following the divorce.
