My mum always says most of them were given to me and my sister by our aunt. Or they came from charity shops and boot sales.

That train is pretty cute. Trust Pinkie Pie.

I had the Nursery twice, both from my aunt of course.

I don't remember ever watching it on TV, but like I said, I had the 3 hour video, and the MLPT one. Fans of the original series tend to hate the new one, and the other way around. There are a fair few that like them all for what they are. Nice to know not all MLP fans are crazy.

Okay, in Pinkie I trust. ^^

The nursery was one set I didn't have. I have the beauty salon, the baby buggy, a showertub and the house. The nursery was the set which looks like it's made of cubes, wasn't it?

I'm not a fan of the new series but that is just because I don't like the art style on the packages much. Of course I might get used to it if I watched some episodes and grew fond of it (I watch(ed) many series with weird art styles, like Phineas and Ferb, Pepper Ann, Cosmo and Wanda...) but I won't go and search for it. I think my hubbie would die. Lol.
Although he keeps reading about Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash. They have their own section at FailBlog somewhere with lots of fans. Thus he knew more names than me, ha ha.

When I was a child I always mixed all my toys. My favourite game was to pretend that a dam was broken and everyone sought refuge on the only hill around - which was usually Crystal Castle from She-Ra. Then everyone would do what they could - scavenge for provisions, rescue items from below water, take care of the young ones... There was She-Ra, Golden Girl, MLP, LovelyLocks and lots of others, all living and working together.
Taking in new "people" without minding their looks just comes natural to me, I guess. I know my old ponies will like the youngsters. :)

The only pony I'm disappointed of is Twilight Sparkle. If she looked more like on the drawing I would like her better, I think. She has much darker streaks of hair on that.

I'm disappointed with Twilight too. I grew fond of her character in the finale of season 2 of the show, but her toy counterpart is the wrong shade of purple.

My toys used to get mixed up too! Much like craft things do for me now. Hahah.

Maybe I could randomly post a youtube link to an episode and you could accidentally click on it.

Today I saw some pictures of G3 ponies. In my opinion they were quite a nice blend between the old chubby ponies and the new super-deformed ponies. :laugh:

I also uploaded pictures of several G1 ponies to the dolls site, e.g. Dancing Butterflies and Barnacle. Tomorrow I'll have at least one more (if the weather is okay there might be more!).

On a related note, I also posted pics of my very first Filly Mermaid!
It's soooooo cute!

Do you know if the current ponies are new characters? The only one I know from generation 1 is Applejack. Did I just miss the others or didn't they exist back then?

From reading on the FiM wikia, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash were around in the G3 show, but I'm not sure about the others. I'm pretty sure Celestia, Luna and Cadance are all new. Of course Spike's been around since the start too.

They've all had redesigns, Pinkie was initially a Pegasus I think, while Fluttershy had a different name and was an Earth Pony.

Wow, Applejack must be very popular then if she's the only one who made it.

Oh noes, look what happened to my favourite pony. :(
It's my only pony with jewel eyes.
No idea what that stain is and where it comes from. When I was little I did some unfortunate experiments with nail polish and such things to some cheap toys, it might be rubbed off from one of those when she was in the big box for years. I tried nail polish remover, sanding paper, sanding paper for wet use (it's harder and I use it for Monster High too) and of course regular scrubbing with a brush and soap. It only got a little bit fainter from the sanding paper, that's all.
Now I don't know what to do about it. Like I said, it's my fav pony, so I don't want to customize her. I guess I'll have to scrub and sand more and hope that the stain doesn't go all the way through. I wonder if the zit cream trick from the Pullip department would work, but knowing me I'd probably bleach a blaze into her with that.

Toothpaste might do the trick? My mum seems to use that on most stains, or at least suggests it. Can't hurt to try I guess?

Hm, that's a new one, will gladly try it. Shall/Can I let that soak in over night or will it do further damage if I leave it on for too long? I could try that on Dals black feet first, those can't be ruined much further.

I'm not sure. She tends to use it on stains on clothing. But I can't see the harm in trying it on other things. Perhaps trying it on Dals feet first would be a good move. Would be a shame to ruin your favourite pony more after all!

Sadly it didn't work. Even after 8 hours Dal's feet looked as black as ever to me. I guess I'll have to sand harder and hope the colour didn't sink in all the way through.

Today I uploaded some more of my old ponies: Tassles, Sister Apple Delight and Ringlets.
