Hi there!
« on: May 15, 2018, 04:33:53 AM »
Hi, I'm April :) I'm a happily married 30-something housewife with rainbow hair and a love for toys. I collect a wide array of random things but I recently decided to get back into collecting toys from my childhood.

My Little Pony was by far the center of my childhood. I began collecting Christmas of 1984 when we moved from Pennsylvania to Florida. My parents bought me the MLP Castle and it was instant love. :biggrin:

[Me on Christmas morning with my castle. I adored Spike and I have such good memories of that play-set.]

I have too many favorites to list. Twinkle Eye, Princess & Sundae Best girls always make me feel nostalgic. But I do believe Surprise and Moondancer were my most cherished. I remember carrying them around with me for many years.

I am trying to get up the courage to start vlogging my collection and finds on YT. But we'll see how that goes. :blush: For now, I am just enjoying the hunt, the restoring, the bonding with my daughter and all the memories of rebuilding my MLP collection.

Thanks for having me!

Hey there! Welcome to the arena. Rainbow hair?! Oh my gosh rainbows are awesome! I’ve never had the courage to dye my hair, but if I could choose my hair colour, and have my hair grow in that colour, that’s what I’d want.
That picture of you and the dream castle is adorable! And I love moondancer too. I grew up with g3, but moondancer is one of my favourite g1. Good luck rebuilding your collection! And I just know you and your daughter will have plenty of fun making these pony memories.

Hello and welcome! I love the photo - the Dream Castle is probably my favorite large playset, but I never had it as a kid.  :)
