My local Tesco had more stock earlier than it did a couple of days ago. Same usual ponies though! Toymaster is the same (although it had about 8 Lily Blossoms!).


I'm hoping that if I go to the smaller Tesco near work they might have something a bit different.


I've also been disappointed with our Toys R Us - some shine brights but I don't want those.

It's weird how much it varies up and down the country. I've *never* seen Lily Blossom or Cheerilee in any shops here! :(

Wow! Our Asda only has the pony skipping rope :) we have ponies in The Range here - wave 3 singles :)

i was going to say i've seen them in The Range too, there were G4, G3.5 and some G3 in the one i went into! The Range is a weird store

Cheerilee and Lily Blossom are the only non-mane 6 characters I've seen, and that's between Cheltenham and Stoke. The only places I can get to easily are Tesco, Sainsbury's and The Entertainer at home, and the pickings are poor. May make an expedition over to TRU next week but last time I looked there was barely anything, let alone anything exciting!
What's up with the distribution over here!

Near me I haven't seen any in any Asdas or Sainsburys at all, and only the massive Tesco Extra has had any out of the supermarkets (they've been on Wave 5 for ages though).

The Entertainers have had very few, mostly playsets. WH Smith have a couple but at extorionate prices. TRU has been my best bet in the past but the last times I've been to either they'd run out of singles and had only playsets or Shinebrights.

But I admit I haven't gone looking in a couple of weeks, I guess that situation might have changed. Might take a trip to Stockport this week, at least they have the decency to put all their shops next to each other!

I completely missed getting Blossomforth and Sugarcup, never even saw them in shops :(

Out pony shopping today I found quite a few... Tru has Twinkleshine and co while tesco even had the twilight sparkle with pink and green extra pony plus accessories in a cardboard castle for just £15 which I hadn't seen before.

That bodes well Mercynova!


I always forget about The Range, I might pop there during the week.


They do have ponies in WH Smith as well, but it was the usual suspects again. I need some for baits but they're still so expensive!

Asda here has nothing MLP apart from a sorry-looking dtrip of dollymix BBs that have been there forever. tesco and sainsburies went straight from wave 1 to luggage ponies. TRU is about 45 mins drive from me, they only had twilights balloon, and styling TS and Fluttershy, with loads of Ponyville and styling Starsongs :(

I really must have missed ASDA selling Blind bags... Are they with the toys or dotted round the store like Dolly Mix ponies were? I guess I will go and check out the big ASDA near me sometime this week now I'm back in Canterbury!

I found some in one of my local stores last night - they were scattered on the shelf beside a lot of Glimmer Wings - which at £7 [and some pennies cant remember what] wasnt a terribly horrible price.

I'm amused that Hasbro sent the blind bags out to Tesco first, yet Asda have once again prevailed and released them already :P

On topic, a lot of my local stores in town are lacking ponies.
The Entertainer has a small section (down the side, where no one can really see them) and only has around 5 G4 items in stock (2 of those being Pinkie's Train). Tesco, haven't been in lately, but my mother informs me there's nothing new. I couldn't see any ponies in Asda last time I checked at all!
Finally, WH Smith haven't stocked any ponies since G3.5. Having said that, they don't seem to have stocked up on any toys except Lego - Even Ben 10 seems to have diminished from there.

I can't deny that I hate January in England - Everything comes to a skidding halt to me :(

Tesco so far been the best bet for G4s for me...
My Asda don't even stock genuine MLPs, they do the G3 blind bags though..
Last I checked WHSmiths, they had ONE Twilight Sparkle for £6.99.   

Toy stores are hard to find lately, let alone find ponies in!

The Range!!! I always forget about The Range when thinking about ponies!! They're actually pretty awesome for all the toys I love! Littlest Pet Shops, MLP, and Monster High!
