So I brought my carousel down from the attic for cleaning so took the opportunity to snag some pictures of them.

I also managed to find a fantastic website for identification as sone of my stands had got mixed up.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


somemhow I have a spare stand with no horse and the stands for two of the horses have gone walk about.

I am actively starting to look for the swan carriage and black twilight to add to the carousel its self. But from what I have read they are hard to come by.

Does anyone else collect them I would love to see pictures of others if you do.

I collect them too. I have the whole set except black Twilight and the swan chariot. What kills me is that I actually saw an MOC black Twilight on Ebay a few years ago, but I thought she must be a custom returned to packaging, so I didn't bid.

Nirvana grails:  Reverse Gusty (upgrade), Peru Windy and Moonstone (upgrade), Brazil TAF upgrades, Argie Powder w/ white hair (upgrade), French Windy and Moondancer (upgrades), Spain TAF's, TE's, and piggies.  These are my biggest wants, but I'm looking for tons more nirvanas, especially Greeks, Brazilians, and Peruvians.  Feel free to PM me for sales or trades.  But please note that I'm also fairly picky.

I had one of these as a kid. And looking at your pictures,the one that jumped out at me is the yellow galloping one with the pink sparkly hair. So probably it was her. I thought her really pretty...Hopper, I guess? I never had any others. I suspect I bought her because I couldn't ever find the Merrygoround ponies and she was a good substitute. I always loved carousels as a kid :D They look really impressive altogether like that :D

What a gorgeous collection! I looked these up a few years ago because I stumbled upon one by accident in a thrift/craft shop, someone had used it to make a Christmas decoration by putting it in the middle of a wreath. It's super sweet so I bought it immediately not knowing what it was, I would collect more but I really shouldn't lol.

A mother pony can be protective of her young just like dogs.

I came across a few of these years ago at a surplus shop.  I eventually sold them because I didn't want to start YET ANOTHER collection, but man are they pretty. <3

How pretty- I've never heard of them before but would have been tempted to get them if I'd ever seen them.

Your collection is awesome!
