G1 Money Box - Pricecheck
« on: June 12, 2018, 08:03:18 AM »
Hi everyone

I just want to do a bit of a pricecheck. The G1 Moneyboxes. I have been trying to find one on ebay that has sold in previous bids but can't find one :/ Does anyone know what these are worth?

As far as I know these were made by Prima Toys in SA, so there might not be so many turning up on eBay? I remember having one as a kid - Bubbles? I'm (almost) sure it was Bubbles.

There are SA ones. They are very strange though, not like the normal range. But there were US ones too http://mylittlewiki.org/wiki/G1_Banks

Here are two SA ones

I had an SA one, which explains it - I remember the little rubber thing on the bottom had Prima Toys on it. Only my Bubbles was yellow  :)

Why are we generalising the above as 'US'? Some of these items (not the SA ones) on the above link were sold in the UK and maybe in Europe too. I have the UK packaging for one of them at least...so they were not just available in the US.

I've not seen the SA ones before. They look as though they were inspired by the other style but the colouring and symbol mismatch is interesting.

Haha forgive me. It is an ignorant generalization :D

Yes the South African ones are quite different. First time I have seen them. There is also this https://photos.app.goo.gl/aTGqZzrQX9fMGJ538 which proves that Prima Toys (who made the South African range of ponies and merchandise) were actually under license by Hasbro. A very exciting find as this has been under debate for years :)

Never seen those before. The Tales one is especially cute

I also like the pink rainbow haired Blossom?

It hardly surprises me that they look different from the norm!

It looks to me like used the same symbol on the Blosson symbol stamp on the bank AND the pony!
