    My BAB only had a weird sparkley sound - no theme tune, gutted, totally would have added that. I also paid for a cupcake scent that they seemingly forgot to add :(

    Might still go back for a Rainbow Dash.

    Went to the Edinburgh BAB today and bought both Pinkie and Dash. They are ah-may-zing. Absolutely huge, very soft and cuddly, high-quality. Seems to be some sort of issue with their hair, though, as a chunk of Dash's tail came out soon after I got her home. Didn't bother with the sound, but Pinkie got a cupcake scent put inside her, which prompted a discussion about a certain fanfic... (By the way, I'm not sure if the scents are worth it - I can't really smell anything.) I found a brony staff member, had a great conversation with her, and ended up giving her about a dozen of my spare blind bags. Recommended this site to her, hopefully she'll check it out. Really awesome trip.

    Apparently the gf and I were the first brronies into the Leicester store, at about one pm - surprised me! Then again I'm not sure how many of us there are here... (even less than actual home, which is Aberystwyth!) It was a pony day.... all bar three W7 BBs, a couple of duplicate W6s (we're picky - Trixie had a blob of white paint on her cheek, and Fluttershy's tail was all messed up. Don't even get me started on the disaster area that is the entirety of Mosely Orange...), the latest pony magazine (not the comics, we're subscribed) that came with a nifty tin and a plastic ring (which I gave to the gf over lunch, whilst asking her to be my special somepony), and the three easily-found thee-sets. We may have a little bit of a problem...

    I was really disappointed when I bought mine by the lack of brony activity. I'd been hoping (if I'm honest) to get at least one brohoof out of my trip. It was in Basingstoke, and I asked the guy serving me if there had been lots of bronies in today. He shook his head and said "no, it's been really quiet today."

    Oh well, maybe Basingstoke is not a brony hub (if you'll pardon the unintentional pun).

    I'm heading to BaB Kingston tomorrow. Bit nervous as I'm going on my own, but hopefully it will go well and I'll get my Dashie and Pinkie, as well as their outfits, SQUEE!

    Me and Hurricane were the first people in the Leicester store today. I was waiting outside for 45 minutes before they opened and I got the first one :)

    The lass who stuffed our ponies for us must have not been in then, I guess. 45 minutes - that's some dedication!

    Daaamn, £10? I really wanted Pinkie and her dress but ten quid is a bit much, surely?
    Ah well, I'll probably still get it..

    And my wig came today! So tempted to walk into town, drag my bf along after he finishes work, get changed and waltz in as Pinkie Pie!

    Have they confirmed whether these are a limited run or not? ^^; I've not been keeping track, it seems.

    I emailed them yesterday but so far no answer. Could anyone who goes ask? I'm not going until Saturday, and hoping that Oxford still has Dashie in stock.

    Thought I'd share a pic of my brand new BAB Rainbow Dash in her finest gala attire!

    She's so lovely, gotta do something with that hair though...

    Just been to cambridge today with my mum went into the Build a Bear around 11ish and it wasn't very busy(only about one little girl was stuffing a Pinkie Pie plush in front of me no one else I saw in there was buying an MLP plush).I must say the staff were extremely friendly and I even did the heart ritual(first time I ever done this lol). Bought Rainbow Dash and her cloak.
    Overall a pleasant experience. When going back towards the train around late 2ish I noticed the BAB got busy around then.
    No Brony encounters though...
