Spanish Names Database
« on: December 28, 2017, 08:04:26 PM »
First of all, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this or if has been commented before. I've made a little search but didn't see anything, so I apologize if I overlooked it ^^;

I'm fascinated with nirvana ponies, especially Spanish ones! They're my favorite. Unfortunately, I couldn't find much info about them so for fun I've been working on, which at first was a list of names (of nirvana) only, a small database of G1 ponies released in Spain, including accessories and backcard stories. Here is the list:

Everything here are info I could verify with pictures found on the internet. It's still in progress and there are a lot of gaps, so if anyone has any name, MOC or something not included here, I would appreciate it very very much if it can be added to the list! And if it go with a picture, the better! :heart:

Hope someone would find this interesting. If there is any suggestions to make it better, please let me know! It's the first time I do something like this.

Oh!! I also have a question about Spanish backcards. I found some backcard pictures that said they were made in Valencia-Spain (First Tooth Baby Ponies or Brush 'n Grow Ponies, for example) but I couldn't find any of these ponies, even in Spanish websites, with Spain or NC marking, just China or Hong Kong.

So my question is if there was some kind of mistake? or maybe some Spanish mixed with international ones?
Also unlike, some cards saying made in China, like Precious Pocket Ponies, some NCs have been found in them. So what is the truth? It really confuses me  :shrug:

This is definitely the right place for nirvana! I can't help much, but there is a lot on ponies from Spain whether they are normal or piggy:

I'm not an expert, so that's the only real help I can give you. I hope it does help though :) Sorry if you already looked on the wiki!

I love this!

I have a vast collection of German pony names ^.^

I don't know if you have seen the nirvana gallery, but you might be able to fill some gaps. Here is a link:

That's a good question regarding the backwards and the "made in Spain" mark on the card. It could be the ponies were imported and boxes in Spain then sold. Similar happened in Mexico with the Baby Seaponies, the Seaponies are HK made but in Mexican boxes.

Glad I was not wrong! My Little Wiki was my main reference to do this list! But it never hurts to look at it again in case I missed something! ;)

Uaah, German names! That sounds so interesting too *__* !

The nirvana gallery helped a lot, actually! I've been able to check some lovely MOCs I didn't see before. Wish there was backwards pictures too, though!

It makes sense that about Spanish boxes with imported ponies, I haven't thought about that! A lot of things about nirvanas seem so mystery to me yet!  :blush:

It's not just the names, but their translations and the fact sometimes characters are different! Many of the names have unique cultural references as well.

I'm glad the nirvana gallery has helped ^.^ I've been trying to add pictures of the back of back cards where I can as they often have useful information such as place of manufacture etc.

I had another thought, ChrissyTree's sticker website has some Spanish stickers featured :)

https://mylittleponystickergallery.weebly.com/

What's frustrating is that not all the ponies actually got a backcard, in the the front was printed but not the back!! Or the card where two thin pieces glued together and over the years the card has become separated due to the glue degrading over time.

There are still a lot of nirvana mysteries out there :wonder:

Hopefully one of our other Spanish collectors will see this thread and be able to help out :)
