    We all know plushies, brushables, blind bags, t-shirts, whatever. Does anyone have any odd pony merch or unusal pony stuff? Just stuff that's out of the ordinary and you don't see everyday.

    Mom picked me up awhile back foaming hand soap, the odd part was that it was in the shape of Pinkie Pie sitting. Even funnier is how she has a pump through her head and the soap apparently has a raspberry scent. Personally I would expected strawberry because of it being pink.

    I also have a set of Christmas lights, all of them shaped like Fluttershy.

    That's just two I could think of. Anyone else have any unusual pony merch that's just out of the ordinary?

    I saw a pinkie pie nightlight. Considering the actual age rating for the show, that probably isn't unexpected.

    I have the Twilight nightlight, it's quite a nice thing.
    One sort-of-odd thing I've seen is the papercraft playsets, with little boxy versions of the characters. They're quite cute, in their way. I own something similar but without the boxiness, a "Fashion and Friendship" storybook and "press-out playset", as it calls it, based on Green Isn't Your Colour. I've never assembled it but it looks good - you can make Carousel Boutique, the spa, and a runway, along with Fluttershy, Rarity, Twilight, Pinkie and Spike and a whole bunch of props.
    Some of the stuff that comes off the magazine can be rather quirky as well - there's a Fluttershy-themed toy banjo thing around here somewhere. :p

    Cool, I've seen a few nightlights at Toys R Us a few times.

    Ah I've seen those papercrafts at Hot Topic if I remember correctly. Never heard of a storybook like that before, that actually reminds me. I got this board book for Christmas, and in the back there were sections with a bunch of blind bag sized figures and a mat. Interesting thing is the figures are not blind bag figures, but they are pony figures in poses different than blind bags.

    Haha, that banjo sounds cute. Reminds me at a local drug store's seasonal section for Christmas, they had a drum set with Pinkie Pie on it.

    Also, I got a piece of metal decor with Fluttershy, Pinkie, and Rarity on it that says "Friendship Is Magic" and had cupcakes in the background. Really cute, and I picked it up about half-price. There was other metal decor at the store, and since I don't remember seeing it online, I took pics and submitted them to Equestria Daily to let others know, since it was a chain store across the US.

    These sound so cute!! I wish I had these but I wouldn't limit them to just christmas-time.
    I'd have them displayed all year :p

    They are, here's a picture of one I took to show @Cloudane back in December...

    They are still up in my room, only because I don't know how to store them without damaging them. I'm thinking a special container just to store them.

    I've seen them in Toys R Us (keep in mind I live in the US), but the set I got was a gift from my mom. :)

    They're so cool!! I hope to go to America next year and I plan to buy a lot of pony stuff (I'll probably take an empty suitcase and buy everything there) :rolleyes:

    I tried to modify some MLP merch in an unusual way.

    I got a Glamour Glow Rarity and tried to upgrade the lights in her.

    The full saga is here, but the TL;DR is "Replacement lights won't fit. Rarity not designed to have strobes."

    Haha, strobe light Rarity. XD Shame it couldn't be done, that would have been something. Only light up ponies I have are the talking Funrise plushies. Cutie marks light up.

    Ooh, that sounds really nice.

    Here's a piece of unusual merch. In the US, almost every supermarket where I live sells "decorated" cookies. These are officially licensed cookies based off cartoon characters, like Spongebob, Dora the Explorer, Hello Kitty, Minions, just to name a few.

    Mom and I went to this Italian market today, and I found this...

    Yes! This confirms that ponies are indeed very sweet! :3

    Apologies for third post, this is something special I saved for today! Didn't edit it in since it's days apart actually. I'll leave it up to the mods since it's rare that I triple post days apart.

    Happy Easter everypony, have an egghead to put your eggs in (she reads Daring Do, which is books, therefore egghead).

    Was sold in the US at Targets, wasn't going to get one, then Mom and I decided to because it's such a weird piece of merch. Rainbow Dash plush Easter basket! For the times you want to put eggs into the egghead, or stuff it with ponies.

    We do not do baskets anymore, for Easter, I usually get one or two things. For fun mom stuffed it with a few VeggieTales DVDs and a My Little Pony watch. Birthday is on Tuesday, so I'm anticipating more pony then. :p Wanted to post this on Easter.

    Sadly they don't. :( Closest is a typical character basket with Pinkie, Fluttershy, Twilight, and Dash on all four sides (one side per pony).

    They should have, marketing would have been great! XD

    When showing my sister your pictures, she didn't admire the basket she admired your collection in the background.
    All I could hear from her room was ''Wow!'' and ''They don't have these in the uk!''
