I managed to find Feathermay today in the smaller Tesco near work. I had to root around a bit, but that means that I only need to find Honeybuzz now!


I popped into TK Maxx - not a pony or MLP item in sight anywhere (they seemed really low on stock to me) and also The Range - they had Blossomforth, Dewdrop Dazzle and a couple of Pinkies/Fluttershys etc.

I had a little success with Tesco, they've got blind-bag size ponies in the four-pack and individually, but no actual blind bags, and dozens of the mans six. I already have the three of those I wanted!

Wilkinson's are stocking ponies, including styling and singles. Still a bit sparse, but more in there as of late.
TRU is a weird, weird place. Stock varies so much from store to store, and I can only assume it's because stuff gets forgotten about/found on a regular basis and gets put on the shelves as and when.
I've also heard a few TK Maxx stores have had singles, but I've only found the Ponyville mermaids in mine.
I'd love to get to a Smyth's but there isn't one in Bedfordshire, and I don't drive, and the nearest Entertainer is a massive trek too. :s

It's all very much a treasure hunt, at least that's what I tell myself to stop me getting annoyed. ;)

You know, you'd think Tesco would have the blind bags, considering they sponsor the show. ^_^; I wouldn't have considered this to be WH Smith's cup of tea, though.

Wilkos has ponies? Will have to check my local one out tomorrow, but TBH all the shops around here are utter and total pants when it comes to stocking MLP so I won't hold out too much hope :/

According to Hasbro, they have the blind bags already - But when I was speaking with a certain staff member working there a couple of weeks ago, they informed me that they're stuck in the distribution center, and won't be released until late Jan/Feb as per their policies of clearing Christmas stock first :(

Interesting point, Sora. It's good to know that Tesco will eventually get the blind bags, even if it'll take a while. I've checked out two ASDAs so far, but have been unsuccessful. The only big Tesco around here is miles away, so I want some confirmed sightings of the blind bags there before I go.

As for other ponies, it's so strange here. There were loads before Christmas, but now, most stores only seem to have the luggage singles and some playsets. It's rather boring, really. I hope to see a few new things soon.

Here I've seen them in The Entertainer and Tesco, but not many. In my town it's even worse, few really oldies (well, wave 4 I think haha) in the local toy store, few luggage ponies in Boots and a lone Twilight Sparkle in WH Smith!

I'm going on a huge search on the 11th Feb though, since I'll be going to Bristol in the evening I figured I'll go in TRU and look around The Entertainer, Family Bargains and TK Maxx =D If I don't have new pony joy...*shakes fist*

I haven't even seen any blind bags anywhere! I only want the Pinkies =[

Has the styling Applejack been spotted in the UK?
I stopped by Argos on Wednesday and they had 25% off all the ponies but the carriages were 2 for £15.  They had Styling Pinkie, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle and I got two carriages and the train set.
