Fellow UK ponies, a question
« on: January 22, 2012, 12:15:16 PM »
Are you guys having trouble finding G4s in the shops too?
the only places I can find them are in big supermarkets, and even then it only seems to be the Mane 6.
My local Sainsbury's at home has filled what used to be the pony shelf with 'Zoobles' and the toyshop in town doesn't carry them at all anymore.
I'm a bit distressed about it to be honest :(

We were talking about this over at the UK ponycon forum, I think it may be just a post-Christmas slump. All the shops in Plymouth where I live have had the same few things for weeks but I was in Exeter yesterday and the toy master there had loads of ponies (Esp. the wave with snowcatcher, I forget which one that is).


However, our ASDA just got wave 3 blind bags and glimmer wings, and argos has added the train set and fashion style ponies so new stuff does seem to be popping up just in the last few days so maybe other supermarkets will catch up soon? I'm so excited about the blind bags! :D

Clearly I need to learn to drive, Asda's miles away *pout*

but yeah, all the shops I can get to have been the same since the summer, so I can't even blame Christmas

I keep seeing the travel sets which makes me worry that I missed the earlier ones! I still need Honeybuzz and Feathermay. :(

I still need Honeybuzz too, Tesco had them in before Christmas and then they suddenly disappeared to be replaced by the travel ones! She was the only one of that wave that toy master didn't have yesterday, I guess she's popular. :c

I'm kicking myself for not buying the wave 3 and 4 ponies I need when my local Tesco stores had them, I kept thinking oh yeah there's like 5 of each pony I'll get them sometime when I have more money. The next time I go into Tesco when I have plenty of Christmas money to spend it's just got all the travelling ponies :( What happened to all the Dewdrop Dazzle, Honeybuzz, Snowcatcher and Feathermay ponies that were there for months?? I really hope they come back...There is a Smyth's toy store about 40 mins away from me and they usually have a variety of the waves but it's not too easy for me to get to what with me not being able to afford car insurance and all.

They're the only ones I've ever seen there too :( Do we have a price on the blind bags?

Supermarkets I definatley have problems with finding them....The Entertainter used to have quite a few; just after christmas they got the mane 6 luggage sets in (LOADS of them) but a week later there were NO singles left (I actually think that as they dissapeared so quickley, the store took them awat as opposed to them being sold) & there are only the balloon, Apple Bloom & Sweetie Belle & the RD playset left now, and they've been moved from their usual stand.

Yeah - I think the spread of the new wave is pretty woeful so far....its a little annoying that we seem to have skipped wave 1 and wave 2 - I have held of buying them online because I really hoped they would turn up somewhere but if the stores have gone straight to wave 3 I doubt we are going to see the earlier waves....grrrrrr

My frustration [and worry] with stores at the moment is the fact just about every tesco or sainsburys I have been in are stuck on wave 6 of the brushables - loads and loads and loads of luggage ponies and they never seem to reduce in stock quantity which is a sign they are not selling. I worry they wont reduce what they have in price and replace - they will simply let them sit their until they sell...is anyone else seeing this as well?
Thank you Matcha for my gorgeous Baby Fifi avi :hug:

I love Loa more than PonyLady!
