Surprise or Baby Surprise, or both at the same time. Those were the ones my best friend had, and I was most jealous of.
Now I'm owning a small army. Definitely still my favorite pony.

Princess Tiffany as a Freshman in college.  I ordered her and a handful of other ponies that I had wanted in childhood that my cousin had.  I think Baby Surprise joined her soon after, as I always paired them as mom and baby as a kid.

Silly Sunshine. I think I found her in a drug store. All my childhood ponies (and my sister's) were boxed up in my sister's basement. I was newly back stateside and when I saw my first G3 pony, they looked so much more like the ponies I remembered from my childhood that, on the spur of the moment, I bought her and popped her on a bookshelf.
If wishes were horses, they'd be My Little Ponies.
Thanks to moonflower for my adorable adoptable!

G3 it was Kimono from Toys R Us, and she was my introduction back into the brand. For G1, that was NSS Cherries Jubilee. She was a thrift store find, at a little family run thrift shop in a rural town. My roommate at the time must have thought I was insane, for asking to buy her (it was a spur of the moment stop and I didn't have money on me).

Boy I cant remember who was the first G1 pony that I bought as an adult. I remember seeing the G3 ponies when they came out in the store. I did not know anything about them either! I was walking around the toy isle and came across them and about died of happiness! I was pretty poor with money and had to wait to buy them. But when I had extra cash I ran right back to that store and bought the G3 ponies that first came out! After that I went online and looked to see what was out there! I was in heaven!!!!! I was able to get a few G1 but I cant remember who they are anymore. I no longer have them either. I was 19 when I bought my first G3 ponies! :) I added a few here and there when I could afford it! And when I found this site in 2007, I just went crazy!  :)

It was Little Flitter because I had her when I was a kid.
I really only intended to buy one pony.  That did not work out as planned  :happy: :happy: :happy:

I can't remember if my thrift find of Italian Blossom and Cotton Candy  was my first as an adult, or my online buy of TAF Sundance, but it was one or the other :)

Seashell was the first I really sought out, once I found eBay.  I missed her when I was a kid, so I had to get her, to keep my Bubbles company.

G3s were just which ones I found. :)
Thanks to Whippetluv for my awsome persona pony!!

Stripes!  Some time in high school I remember being on eBay, and although I have no memory of deliberately searching for My Little Ponies I somehow found myself on a listing for Stripes.  Seeing her photos gave me this amazing rush of nostalgia, and I was desperate to buy her.  She was favourite pony growing up, and so it seemed only fitting that she was the first pony on my new herd as an adult.

I believe it was G1 Locket. She was the first pony I found 'as an adult' with the notion of having ponies to collect, not play with - I was about 16.  I found her in an antique shop. I think she was only a couple dollars.

I can't remember. I just know I started collecting with the intent of getting all the ponies I played with as a kid. I'm sure I went after lots, because that's the way I roll.

It was however the 25th anniversary set that we found at a discount store that drew me in to buy ponies again. But I believe my mom bought that for me, hahaha.
