    Hi ponies :)

    Do you ever go car booting for ponies or check out charity shops in the hope of finding ponies? :)

    I have very little charity shop or car boot luck :( I think the folks in my area are savvy and eBay things rather than donate them.

    I still live in hope though :p

    Love pkw xxx

    I used to find ponies in our carboot sale on a regular basis! I had a G4 Crystal castle in box with all of the bits for 50p! A Dream Castle shell for £5, Baby meadowsweet G1 for 50p, bags of my G3's have come off the local boot sale!! Charity shops, not so much :( the odd fakie here and there, but nothing special....the best I have found was a G3 suitcase.

    I've found the odd bundle of G3 ponies in charity shops, but nothing on a regular basis.

    I know some folks have found pony gold in charity shops!

    I've found some old G1 and 2 ponies in the figurine cabinets at Orbital Comics, where they're going for about £4 each.

    I've occasionally found some pretty cool/rare stuff, like a big Pinkie Pie, but not as often anymore.
    I guess people are just realising how sought after vintage ponies are and so, they decide to sell them personally on EBay or Gumtree...
    It's logical, but still a little sad.. :(

    I sometimes think I should go visit some of the larger carboots to see if there may be anything on offer... Up until now, no luck at all at charity shops or car boot sales. (Although I do go into Orbital Comics when I pass by (as mentioned) to see if they have any new ponies.

    I've genuinely no idea, too old for me. The pink one has a cutie mark like Twilight. The white one has a sunflower.

    I'm only starting to get into the earlier generations but starting as a history to the mane six. (For example the ancestor to Rainbow Dash etc.) I think the white one may be Sunny Daze. No idea on the pink one I'm afraid.

    The white pony is Sunny Daze And the pink one is Twinkle Twirl :)

    They came on top of pots of play dough, which is why they have the stamp underneath.

    Thank you :) At least now I can tell my daughter. She calls all the ponies Fluttershy or Pinkie Pie regardless of generation or colour.

    I'm glad I could help :) There is a Pinkie Pie as well.

    Ha! I'm guessing Flutter and Pinkie are her favourite ponies then? ;)

    Love pkw xxx
