My last date for receiving payment for pony items from this thread will be April 18th, 2016 This is to allow me to ship them before I go back to London.

I am home for a few weeks and am hoping to find these poor homeless ponies a forever home. About half of them are from childhood collections from which I have acquired them. I do not use any chemicals on ponies for cleaning and I do not remove heads, so leave that up to new owners if deemed necessary.

I will be sending ponies to Ebay but I wanted to give Arena people the first shot.

Prices are in £ and $US but I will also accept payment in Euros at relevant conversion rounded up to the nearest Euro. US prices are converted from current existing exchange rate from the £ rounded up to the nearest whole dollar.

I post from the UK. Shipping costs are roughly in this vein:

IN the UK - Signed for first class is £4.40 and second class £3.95. I can send up to six ponies for this same price within the UK.
International prices can be found here on the Royal Mail site:
http://www.royalmail.com/sites/default/files/Royal-Mail-UK-and-international-parcel-and-letter-prices-30-March-2015.pdf
Please note that tracking is not automatic in the UK, you will have to pay extra for tracking. I recommend tracking, especially on higher cost items.

1 adult pony in a box is about 200g. Each additional pony adds at least 100g to the weight of the box.

Please no international orders that total less than $10 USD.


Links to more pics of the ponies can be found here:

All images under the names of the relevant ponies. Please feel free to ask questions. I have been as detailed as possible but everyone has their priorities and I am fine doing more pics or answering other things.



Adult Ponies


Shady (Movie Star, 1987)

visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Shady is clean and her hair is uncut. There is still some wave to her hair, although it feels kinda dry. She has tail rust and I am fairly sure she needs a thorough internal cleaning, which I am not going to attempt as it would require breaking the seal. She doesn't have marks on her body but her overall colour suggests to me that she could use internal cleaning. Her eyeliner is black.Her symbols are intact but show a little wear. She has a few specks of white on her leg which may come off.
Price: £4 ($6)

Sky Rocket (Twinkle Eye, 1986)[/b]
visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Sky Rocket is in okay shape. Her hair is nice and silky but has lost its original curl. Her eyes have been rubbed so the pearly sheen is no longer covering them completely - I would say about 50% rubbed? She has some faint marks on one cheek which may come off, and also a couple of brown spots which probably won't, either side of her neckline. Also one below one ear. Symbols are good, hair is uncut and body is otherwise clean.
Price: £4 ($6)

Chatterbox - Sweet Talking Pony.[/b]
visitors can't see pics , please register or login

In terms of the pony herself, she is in nice shape. No major marks, light wear to her body. Her hair is silky and uncut but a bit messy and could use a good grooming. Her symbols are intact.I have not had a chance to test her in terms of her speaking. Right now she is mute, so either the batteries she has are flat, or there are no batteries, or she no longer works. She doesn't feel heavy enough to have batteries inside but I haven't had time to investigate. I can't see any sign of rust or damage around the outer fixing but because I haven't tested her, I don't know if she still speaks or if she does, what language.
Price: £4 ($6)


Playtime (Playschool Pony - European exclusive)

visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Playtime isn't too bad. Her major flaw is a permanent mark on her rear hoof which you can see more clearly in the other pics but is visible in this page picture. Her hair is uncut although it is a tiny bit rough at the ends it is mostly silky. Her symbols are okay, as her eyes and freckles. She shows light wear other than the permanent mark on her hoof.
Price: £7 ($10)

Blossom CF

visitors can't see pics , please register or login

This is actually a nice example of Blossom. She isn't particularly discoloured, her hair is not cut and nor is it frizzy. Her mane is a bit messy but not permanently damaged. Some light symbol wear but nothing major. General overall wear for her age but one of the nicer examples of this pony.
Price: £3 ($5)

Baby Ponies
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
Baby Lickety Split (First Tooth Baby, 1987)[/b]
visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Baby Lickety Split has uncut hair, but her mane is a touch mad. And by that I mean very mad. It also feels a bit rough, and has lost its curl. It is still pinky, though. Tail is less mad and has some curl, also pink. Her tooth has surprisingly little rub to it, just a tiny bit. She rattles a little bit but her tail isn't loose and I can't immediately see signs of inner damage or dirt - that's for someone more skillful than me to investigate. She has light playwear but her body condition is generally good, as are her symbols.
Price: £3 ($5)

Baby Lickety Split (Play and Care Set, 1986) - European exclusive

visitors can't see pics , please register or login

In my opinion this is the "real" Baby Lickety Split, although she is also the rarest version on account of her limited geographical availability;) She is in pretty decent shape. Her hair has faded some but is still pale pink. Her curls are gone but her hair is uncut. Her symbols are still pretty good, her freckles too. She shows some general light playwear as she has lived with kids, but I can't find any major issues like scribbles or bites on her. I would not call her perfect but she would make a nice addition to a collection.
Price: £20 ($29)


Baby Cotton Candy

visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Not bad. Her hair has faded some but is still faintly pink and has some semblance of the curl. Can't see any sign of haircut. Body shows some light wear from playing but no ink marks I can see and symbols are still present. I would not call her a perfect pony but she is in pretty nice shape.
Price: £2/$3



Ponies sold as sets or with accessories


Baby Blossom with original accessories and UK box, 1985 insert

visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Baby Blossom is in very good condition. She is still very lavender in colour and shows light playwear. There is a faint mark by her symbol on her non display side. It might come off, but I haven't tried. Her tail is a little messy while her mane shows signs of original curl. She comes with her original UK style box (which is extremely hard to find in any condition, as it is 30 years old, and which also features Baby Cotton Candy and Baby Applejack!), rocker, aqua top bottle, pink brush, BABY necklace, rattle and 1985 UK insert. She is only missing her nappy, nappy box, sticker and ribbon.
The box is in good condition with some wear around the edges and some creasing from storage. It has no inlay. It has not been flat-packed but could be for packaging if necessary. The insert shows some wear from having been read a few times, but it has not been drawn on. The accessories are in good condition with some play wear. Sold as a set.
£18 ($26) set HOLD

Dancing Butterflies with UK original backcard

visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Dancing Butterflies is in pretty nice shape. I've had lots of minor batch variations on this pony come through my hands over the years from here in the UK - this one is curly haired and still has loose curls, mostly, although they have become a bit muzzed. I haven't tried to groom it, I will leave that to her new owner. She ha some light wear to her symbol and a pink dot on her display side wing which looks like it may be a stray speck from symbol paint, not sure if it's always been there. She has some light dirt around her feet and a faint blue speck on her stomach. Her card is the original UK release card for this set, which is very difficult to find and is her original card. It has some damage from where the bubble was removed and has had a horsehoe point cut out from it.
I will sell pony and card separately. Taking offers on them together, Dancing Butterflies alone is £4 ($6). Please note I will also trade the backcard separately for another backcard I don't have of similar rarity.

Tug/Salty with original hat, bandana and yellow frog brush

visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Tug came to me from his original childhood home here in the UK, where he seems to have been well looked after. His mane and tail are a little messy, his tail still has definite sign of curl. Most of his mane curl has gone but there is a tiny wave at the end. No part of his hair has been cut. He has a couple of specks on his back and there may be a faint spot on his one leg by his knee. His accessories are also in good condition. There are some loose threads around the edge of the bandana, but it is clean. The hat is in good shape but looks a little dirty in the hard to reach areas, may need a clean. The brush is in generally good played with condition. His hooves say Pat Pending.
Price: £32 ($45)

Baby Pockets and Baby Hoppy (set)[/b]
visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Another nice pair, who I am selling as a set as it would be sad to separate them. Both are in decent shape, although Baby Hoppy the kangaroo has a few minor flaws that I will try to describe. Firstly, I think that part of her hair might have been cut. It doesn't show from a distance, but when I was photographing her, it looked like some tiny sections had been feathered. She also has an indentation on the back of her neck and some general overall light playwear. Pockets is in great condition. Her hair is lovely and silky and not cut. I can't find any major issues with her, please see the pictures.
Price: £25 ($35) pair

Baby YoYo with comb and bottle

visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Yoyo is in nice shape. Her hair is still pink and has curl, although it could use a proper style in the mane in particular. The only mark I can see is a dot over one symbol, otherwise she looks fine. She comes with her bottle and her yellow duck comb.
Price: £6 ($9)

Baby Lucky with bowtie

visitors can't see pics , please register or login

He feels a mite sticky, so you know what that means. I find this a common issue with Lucky :/. He is otherwise pretty clean and his hair is nice. He has his bowtie, but the elastic is shot and it could use a gentle clean.
Price: £7 ($10)


Mint in Package Items

Petites MIB (Ponytail) - I have 2 of these sets, one in US/UK packaging and one in European packaging. £25 each or £40 for the pair. (I do have pictures of these, please do ask if you want to see them!)


UK release Backcards/Boxes - offers considered, will trade or sell.

Rosedust (UK flutter pony box, 1986 - good condition, no inlay)
Cherries Jubilee (UK card, missing horseshoe points and ticks on the back design)

I also have several G1 inserts and some accessories.


Other

Princess Golden Light (?)
visitors can't see pics , please register or login

I think this is her name, since I had her from France as a kid and I tend to think of her in terms of her french name for that reason. She is in good condition, no major marks or blemishes, but her hair tinsel is insane, making her hair quite in need of styling!
Price: £7 ($10)

I am interested in the Apple Delight family (I have the brother myself). Do you ship to Holland?
And in your link with pictures there are accessories too. Do you still have them? There are a couple I'm interested in.

Nope, just my way of keeping track, but they've been taken out now as all have arrived at their new homes :) I like to leave the images up until I know they made it safely.
