Well the bad news for you all is that when I was in hospital I had very little to do but think so I have loads of "things" I need help with - heres the first. And thank you in advance pony geniuses.

Ok I know German releases are a little difficult to quantify sometimes and whether or not they are nirvanas due them being hk/china made makes it a debate in itself on whether or not they are nirvana but....I thought I would have more luck with this post in this forum than over in the corral so here we go.

Can you help me complete this list of "German" ponies and what makes them different from regular US releases? [If it says pad pend its cause thats the only difference I can think of]

Hi Cat.

I have a Baby Firefly or Surprise (can't remember which) with a Glitter Symbol and is missing Pat Pend. Speedy is missing Pat Pend as well. There is also Wig Wam & Chief missing Pat Pend (I think all the BB's have non Pat Pend versions). Baby Cherries Jubilee & Baby Honeycomb are German as well. The Baby Heart Throb without hearts I thought was UK only.

I hope that helps a bit!!

These ponies aren't German, and are just European as a whole: Wink

Milky Way - matt and colour symbols
Baby Starbow - hair colour
Sweet Pocket - hair colour
Pretty Beat - hair colour
Baby Gusty - NBBE
Baby Lickety Split - NBBE
Baby Ribbon - NBBE
Baby Heart Throb w no wings on hearts - NBBE
Baby Starburst - hair colour
Baby Splashes - hair colour

However there are also normal looking princess ponies with the pat pend missing that are German Smile

I bought a Wigwam and Steamer some time ago - they are Pat Pending only!
IDing some of these ponies out there is a real challenge! Too many - Too tempting!

just wanted to say : Slugger, Quarterback and 4Speed were never sold in Germany.
You made a nice list though Smile
The [pink baby] and the [yellow baby] are Baby Blubberchen and Baby Schlummerlein. The blue one from this set is called Baby Würfelchen, not Baby Wulferchen. Smile

I'll dig out my non Pat Pend Wig Wam and get pics for you. I also gave one to PKW in the UK Ponycon swap as well as a non Pat Pend 4-Speed to her as well. I'll ask her to take pictures. I don't know if they were sold or not there however why would they be missing the Pat Pend marks (all were acquired from my friend in Bremen).

EDIT - Here's the picture:

I am still a little confused, but maybe someone else thinks he has been released in Germany...

As Lady G said the NBBE babies are not german but European.
(I had NBBE baby Licket Split as a child so she was definately sold both outside UK and Germany.)

As for NBBE baby Heart trob, the one without wings on the hearts is a UK exclusive (one of the few ponies that actually IS a UK exclusive and not European)
The one with wings on the hearts is a European version and not german. She was sold up here as well, and seem to be the more common one of the two (since she was sold in more then just one country)

And dont forget about baby Honeycomb. She is a german exclusive Smile

Quote::
I don't know if they were sold or not there however why would they be missing the Pat Pend marks
all ponies made after a certain time is lacking the pat pend mark (ponies made after the patent was granted) so the lack of pat pend is not a reliable sign to see if a pony is german or not.
The ponies made during the time the patent was granted is often seen in both versions, and as Europe where slightly later in the releases then the US, Europe often got the versions without the pat pend, as they where made a little later.
I belive that the boys without the pat pend is European rather then German ponies. I've heard from other swedish collectors that we had both the pat pend and non pat pend version of the boys up here.

I have Locket MOC on a German card and the only difference I can see is she doesn't have pat pend and she came with a different comb Smile

Here's her backcard I'm assuming the ponies on the backcard are the other's available in Germany?

No - I just compared her to another Locket in good light and they seem identical apart from foot stamp Smile

Oh crap! I forgot to add German Baby Blossom to my list!!!
*smacks head*
Thank you for reminding me. Wink

I can verify that Tex IS one of the BB's sold in Germany, I've got one. There does seem to be a bit of confusion on that topic though, doesn't there?

Some ponies made it to Germany, tough they have not been released here. A friend found english carded ponywear in a german shop, another found Parasol with glittery symbols in a german shop (as a child). Some ponies have been brought to Germany, maybe by foreign soldiers (we had a lot back in the 80th) or were bought on vacation. Wink No need to be confused. I am sure, there was no planned release of the 3 boys here, but maybe one or two made it to Germany on another way Wink
