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.

The only pegasus from my g3 collection I sold without regret.
If I ever find one with no scent, she will come home with me. I had her from store and honestly...that's not a nice smell. Coconut Grove and I think Citrus Sweetheart...both ponies I love the look of but cannot stand the smell so sold them.

Now I get funny looks at toy fairs when I sniff the pony :) But I am not buying one with its scent intact ever again. I have picked up a couple of scented G3 at fairs which have faded to tolerable levels. I am hopeful one day I can re-add those two ponies to my collection without the pong.

I hope you do find some. The Sunny Scents are such a pretty set. Tangerine Sunset smells strongly still. Though my daughter has had her all these years, and whatever scent Thistle Whistle had, has faded to a very faint, sweet scent before my daughter got her.


I don't like Discord as a villain. Plus it annoys me that they took a creature from Asian mythology and called it something else completely.

I think G4 Smooze is cute, but super sucky in comparison to the menace of the original. Why bother calling it the smooze then? It's not even a villain. Its essentially gak that gained life and ruined the antique carpet. Plus they all just stood there and stared at it like a bunch of idiots. I don't get how meditation and cosmic, chakra alignment made it shrink.

 I don't mind G3 Spike, and I think G4 Spike is both annoying and pitiable. He gets treated like a servant and a nuisance.

I wish the Wingers and merponies had gotten episodes and I wish we'd had sea pony centric episodes.

I will never call g4 merponies sea ponies. They aren't and Hasbro dropped the ball.

I only like three of the birthday jewel g3s. I'd like April, if her symbol didn't look more like an eye.

I'm not crazy about most of the G3 Sweet Scented Ponies designs, aside from Butter Pop, Pretty Pop and Soda Float.

I don't like G3 babies... they look disproportionate and their faces are weird.

OK - this one will be unpopular, sorry in advance!

G1  Rapunzel -

for sure a much-loved, much coveted (and rare/expensive) pony...

but I just don't admire her yellow/pink colour combo all that much  :bolt:

I noticed my OOB Coconut Grove has a bit of a different smell to her now, but I still love it. It's almost like G1 pony smell to me, just this blast of childhood nostalgia. She was my first pegasus when they came out for G3, somehow my mother won one of the "First 50" for me, and she remains in box to this day (my only MIB), and smells like she always did. I got another one to debox and play with, she smells a little different now but still very good, in my opinion. I've never gotten to smell any of the other scented ponies, from any gens, so I'm not sure if I'd like them or not, but I have a feeling I might, I really like fruity/sweet/light perfume smells.

Maybe that is an unpopular opinion of mine, liking scented ponies. :lol: I know they seem to bother a lot of people and even give some headaches.

I like her colors, but I don't like her hair.


I can't remember if I shared this one:
Mimic is my least favorite TE unicorn, and my second least favorite TE overall after Quackers.

You are not alone, can't say I like her that much either  (good thing too, I have far too many expensive ponies on my wish list as it is)

This is a surprisingly popular opinion, actually :) A lot of people don't like her that much.

I think the reason people say that they do or don't like her relates to her price and the fact that because of it she stands out in people's minds. I think if she was a $10 pony she'd get discussed a lot less.

I think Twilight Sparkle is an incredibly boring character. If she was a real person I'd stuff her into her locker.

I'm not a big fan of Discord either and I usually don't care for the episodes focused on him. I did like him  in  "To Where and Back Again" and he was okay in "Twilight's Kingdom" He didn't seem truly reformed to me most of the time anyway.

I'm also not a big fan of Mimc.

YES, this. I haven't seen much of the show but what I have seen of it, I always find Twilight's scenes so... boring... x___x;

I don't care for Baby Splosh. Unique and cool symbol. Boring colors.

She is boring. But when you put it in context with Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash, boring is a relief.

I think Flippity-flop is kinda cute. Her symbol and name are lame , but she has great colors.

Seconded on all levels. Feel bad for her for that name. Even Flip-Flop would;ve been better.
