I didn't know Trucker had a fading streak. That may be an exception for me. The only other pony I have whose pink I want to keep are a couple of g3 childhood ponies and my new Wysteria (3? 4?)

I prefer the name Princess Starburst over Princess Amber. I mean Amber is a really pretty name and all, but one particularly horrible bully ruined it for me. Plus I love Starburst shapes and candy.

Amber is my middle name :'( I'm sorry you met a bad one :(

Starburst used to be Opal Fruits over here. I quite like the German name, I think she's Topaz?

I like the second set of Princess Ponies. Particularly Pristina, Misty, Taffeta and Moondust. Granted, I wish the tinsel was done better, but they're still a very pretty set.

I like them too :D I wish they had been sold here in the UK :(
Though Pearl will always be my darling in the princess stakes.

I didn't know that? Stingy Hasbro.

Tiffany/Pearl is one I'm biased towards, as she was a childhood pony. I also love Starburst/Amber and Primrose/Ruby.

I wonder what the second set of princesses would've been named if they'd been sold there? Although I like their names just fine and think they suit them well.

I like them too. I would have kept the names the same over here, if it had been up to me, as well. We didn't have any pony called Sunbeam in the UK. We did have 'Princess Moondust' (the orange petite with the castle was called that here) but we certainly didn't have a Dawn, Pristina or Taffeta either. And actually, we didn't have a Misty, because we only had four of the six Watercolor babies, and that wasn't one. Oh, wait. We had the petite Misty, but Petites somehow don't count the same?

So the names would've been new and different :)

Hasbro are stingy. We had the first set in both 1987 and 1988. Leading to confusion about accessories forevermore after that...seems they weren't consistent between years.

It's funny that the second princess set has ponies named Misty and Dawn. That's my favorite aunty's name.

I did have two different friends named Amber growing up. :hug:  And as I said, it's a pretty name. So I don't have anything against it. Or people named after it. Just that one person.

Opal Fruits? That's interesting. Topaz is such a pretty name.

Aww. It was the opposite for me. When most of my 3rd grade class followed the bully's example and avoided me and my "germs", my friend Amber was the only one who would spend time with me.

They're also main characters in Pokemon.

I totally agree. I'd take Sunshimmer over Sunset Shimmer any day.

I like Sunset Shimmer, but I think if we were just talking between the physical ponies, I'd like them both the same. I am just very attached to Sunset Shimmer in the EQG incarnation...

I love their colours, so the more red/orange/yellow ponies the better in my view :D Definitely room for both in my pony world :D Sunshimmer is one of my favourite G3s as well.

I...I took a whiff of my daughter's Coconut Grove. :huh: I dunno if the smell has mutated with age, or if hasbro legit doesn't know what coconut smells like, but I did not find it particularly pleasant. It's kinda put me off getting one for myself.

She smelled vaguely sweet to me, I think? My sister had one as a kid but the scent is long gone iirc.

I have two of Coconut Grove, one was a childhood pony and the other i got in a bundle a few months back. My childhood coconut smells sweet like coconut but the other one, oh my god, she smells awful. I really want to soak her in some perfume for a few months to get rid of the smell >_<
