I just recently started collecting G1 My Little Ponies in December. I used to love them as a child in the 80s, but after collecting nearly all the play sets and about 200 ponies, I lost all of them in a house move in the early 90s  :cry: I often thought about starting again with my collection, but I never had the heart... that is until now.
I changed my mind because my 2yo daughter is already showing signs of loving to collect her favourite toys and her enthusiasm has reminded me of how much I miss my childhood toys.

Because I rarely had new ponies as a child I now love buying tatty old BAIT ponies and restoring them as best I can. It’s turning out to more involved than I expected so one of my Instagram followers suggested I join this forum because there is such a wealth of knowledge and experience here... hopefully one day I’ll be able to add to it  :biggrin:

Welcome to the forum.

Many collectors here have similar experiences of their childhood collections getting lost, donated or sold :hug: I hope you and your daughter are able to build a beautiful collection that you can share together.

Love pkw xxx

Welcome, Thecraftess :wave:

And so it begins!  You will have so much fun replacing some of your beloved childhood collection that I predict your mail box will be overflowing in the months to come :lovey:

Best of luck with your restoration work too. It's always nice to see a very well loved pony restored to their natural beauty.  Enjoy the forum :D

Hi, welcome to the Arena :) I'm sorry you lost all of your ponies, it seems to happen all too often. For restoring, you can always ask or learn something new in the pony corral :) I hope you enjoy the forum, I'll see you around!
Still lusting after Sternenglanz...
