Getting some free ponies!
« on: November 22, 2012, 02:14:40 AM »
I work in the Kid's Club at 24-Hour Fitness.  It's actually a pretty sweet job, all things considered.  I made some copies of my G1 coloring book for the kids to color and one little girl took a Little Flitter one (ok, a lot of girls did.  But this particular one has relevance to my story lol).  She showed her mom, who said "oh, you have that pony."  I mentioned that it was one of the older, 1980's ponies and she said yep, that was the one.  Apparently this kid has "hundreds" (to quote the mom) of ponies, mostly old ones from the kid's aunt.  I talked to the mom about them a little and mentioned that I collect those older ponies as a hobby.  The mom laughed and said that the little girl was getting to the age where she was too cool for ponies.  I told her to let me know if they ever were getting rid of them and I'd buy them.

Fast forward to today.  The mom sees me when she checks her kid in and says that the little girl has recently announced that "ponies are for babies" and that she doesn't want them anymore.  Mom asks me if I am still interested and I said that if the little girl was SURE she wanted to get rid of them, then yes.  Mom took my email and said that when they get home from their Thanksgiving trip, she'll get in touch with me about the ponies.  Then, she said she didn't want money.  She just wants them out of the house and in a home where they'll be appreciated.

:squee:

She's warned me that lots of them have mohawks (part of being "too cool" for ponies, apparently... *shudder*), so I may have a big rehair and restore project on my hands soon.  Still, I can't wait!  She described it as "boxes full" of old ponies.  I wonder who is in those boxes?!  And how many?!  I know for sure there is a Little Flitter, who is in an unknown condition.  But any LFs are welcome in my army!

I think I will try to pay her anyway, at least enough for the kid to get a cool new toy.

I definitely will post pics.  I am super curious!  I have no idea how many I'm getting, who I'm getting, and what condition they're in.

you might could offer a gift card to a toystore or somewhere like walmart or something so that she can get some "cool toys" of her own choosing too lol

i hope this comes through for ya and keep us updated :) i love those magical played with ponies *hugs them* lol

A gift card isn't a bad idea.  I was just going to hand her some cash, but the card might be more fun.  Hmmmm...  I do want to offer something though.

That is super wonderful! I am stoked for you and hope you post a picture of your new pony friends.

Also giving a gift card would be nice. :) With the season coming in fast now and all I'm sure anything would be helpful and appreciated even if she said she didn't want any money.

It'd be awesome getting ponies for free, but I would want to do something nice at least in return.
