i love england
when i was there in 2000 i found a 15yr old carebear still mib in a model shop it was 2pounds i nearly had a heart attack.

lets hope its not just that family bargain store but it might just be old stock they found in the back.

That is awesome!

 I remember back in 1999, someone had found some MIB G1 Kitchens play set at a TRU. This post totally reminded me of that! How nostalgically fun!

Thanks for the heads up Chrissie! <3 I just found out there is one about 25 miles from me so I'll drive over next week, cos it's in the same town where I do a charity shop run sometimes! :D

Family Bargains in Bristol has a couple too, the ones with the video pack. :) Very strange to find.

G3 ponies came out almost 10 years ago now.... I feel old >.>

Holy crap, you're right!

Yeah, that is a cool find. I'm wondering if anyone needs those ones any more though... might not be worth buying them...

I was looking to complete the set of the first 2003 ponies, the main thing that's my problem is missing charms :P

Videos! I bet there are kids these days who don't even know what a video is. Cool find though, I love coming across old stuff in discount stores - it's like some weird sort of time travel :)

I found a G3 Daisyjo (the first one with a charm) in TK Maxx about a week or so ago but the box was open and it was selling for £7.99 so it stayed where it was!

A friend of mine used to work at TRU and told me how they smashed all the G1 Kitchens up to send them back, just a few months before I got back into collecting... *dies*

Smashed up the playsets!  eh! Hasbro might have been able to sell them otherwise *grr*

I also spotted someone has the same ones up on amazon so maybe it's a nation wide thing ?!

They were definitely not from a storeroom there, as I said this shop has only been open a couple of months, before it was JJB sports.  Perhaps there's a warehouse full of them *dreams*
