Show me your Moondreamers!
« on: February 24, 2017, 08:59:52 PM »
Hi ponies,

I never had Moondreamers as a child and didn't see the cartoon either, but this hasn't stopped me from falling in love with them :P

I've got Roary, Ursa Major, Ursa Minor and Crystal Star (her hair has faded to blonde) :heart:

I'd love to see your Moondreamers collections :D

Love pkw xxx

My Moon Dreamers are currently in storage, due to lack of space so I can't share pictures but I do have the big purple Moon Dreamers Central (I forget the real name of it) and Roary and Ursa Major and I think six of the dolls.  Most of the dolls were found at thrift shops.  I only had two to play with growing up and I'd have to look them up to tell you which ones they are.  One had pink hair (I think she was supposed to be the leader) and the other one was smaller and blonde.

I love the Moondreamers!  I love the playsets too- especially "Starry up"

Here is a picture of some of my loose stuff- my big sets are way too big so are being stored at my sister's house, alas

At some point I discovered Stefanie Eskander the "sample maker" (the one who makes the actual prototypes)  for the 2nd year Moondreamers dolls (the ones that didn't actually make it out)- these ones:

 She is super nice!  She also designed "Moonglow" for the Rainbow Brite series, and the Lama from Jem-

She shared with me this photo of her desk from those days- on it was a toy she designed that never made it to production for the Moondreamers line- it was called the "Cosmic Cafe"- neat isn't it!  (she doesn't have the sample- it is just a picture of her desk back when she worked on it)   sadly, she hasn't seen any of the 2nd year Moondreamers dolls since back in the day when she worked on them.  SO SAD!  I guess it is rare for sample makers to have their own samples...

I have a couple! none of the dolls unfortunately but I have a long eared thing and  a round thing with a propeller on its head.

I loved the dolls as a kid but not for very long so I dont really remember much about them except that they come with jewellery that kicked off a life long love of aurora borealis coloured crysatals for me

These are lovely. I'm sometimes tempted by them. I'd love to have Whimzee and Ursa Major and those egg thingies with the flashlight that work for Queen Scowlene. What are they called again?

Pokey that's a shame they are in storage, it sounds like you have a great collection ^.^

Galactica you have a wonderful collection and those MIB! I've seen those catalogue images before ^.^ I love those other animals, the rabbit and goat! The cosmic cafe looks super sweet, thank you for sharing that :heart:

Oh I LOVE Moondreamers! I had Crystal Starr as a child and my sister had Bitsy and Roary. I have them now since she doesn't collect. I don't have any pics since they are in storage. I will be working on collecting these once I finish my strawberry Shortcake collection.  :biggrin:

Re question way above- those "egg" looking critters with the flash lights are called "Sleep Creeps"  - they're super cute... flocked all over just like a So Soft pony (Dozers are the hippo looking guys)

There are just a few variants-  apparently somewhere in the UK, some Moondreamer dolls may have come on blister packages rather than in boxes.  I've never actually seen one.

There is ONE variant doll known- it is Blinky (who usually has pink pigtails) who comes with BLUE curly hair like Whimzee instead.  I THINK I discovered the first one (back when ebay was new) on the UK ebay.  Since then, she has popped up several more times, which makes me think that some country somewhere must have released a batch of them this way.  Pretty clearly a factory mistake- (or possibly they were made at the end of the series when Hasbro ran out of pink hair and just used blue to use up the leftovers- they did something like that with various Jem dolls so why not MOondreamers?)

There are some pictures of her on the now defunct moondust4moondreamers- site- (not my site but I donated the pictures SO long ago).  It was so long ago that I actually got those pictures with a SCANNER (yes that is how we did it back then kids, lol)

I collect Moondreamers, but mine are all in boxes right now. I also have the cartoon on DVD! Sorry I can't post the link where you can buy it, since it's technically a bootleg (but a really high quality one!).

Ringwraith ive watched some of the cartoons on YouTube :) they are cute!

Galactica thank you for sharing :heart: I too remember when people scanned stuff :P I recall how it could appear to alter colours too. That Blinky is sweet with blue hair. It would hardly surprise me if she was either a factory fluff up or that they ran out of pink hair :P

Love pkw xxx

They're very sweet, I love the animals in particular! I'd love to get Ursa Minor and Galaxia (I think that's her name?) one day :) I wish they'd made those prototype animals.. omg and the Cosmic Cafe looks so cool, I've never seen that before! Thanks for sharing Galactica :)
