Some additions from the Toy Fair, and a couple of rescues :)
« on: February 11, 2019, 11:37:50 AM »
I haven't been to the toy fair in a long while, so yesterday was my first in some time. I often end up buying G3 here, and sometimes end up buying G3 I already have but this time I managed to come away with seven that were new to my collection (some of whom I have never even seen before).

So the seven are Spring Parade (she is so orange O.O, I want to call her Lucozade), Spring Breeze, Yesterdaisy, Royalette, Sunshine Blossoms, Garden Wishes and Party Cake.

According to Wiki, Royalette and Yesterdaisy were Target ponies. But since Target ponies weren't sold in the UK, I am wondering how they got here...

Oh well O.o.

I also picked up a few others who are doubles, including a Winter Snow (from a stall where the owner thought she was a flat foot xD), newborn twins Tuggles & Toddles and a rather well-loved Honeycomb. And a Holly Dash. People still need her, right? :) They will all go on my trade/sale list come Easter, providing international postage is possible over Easter period of course ;). Winter Snow has a couple of small marks but cleaned up really nicely. Honeycomb has a lot of pindot, an ink spot, her symbol is worn and she has some damage to her muzzle, but I feel like she's the kind of pony someone might put love into fixing up. I hope so, anyway :) Her condition makes me feel she was loved by a kid once, and can be loved by someone again, but maybe not the pickiest of collectors.

Some pictures...not great as the light here is sucky :/ but anyway...

The G3 are all in good shape. I did see one other G3 I know I don't have, but her hair was cut so I left her behind...:/

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

Who wants to changed this sig into ponies?

Nice finds! Winter Snow is one of my favorite G3s, and you're right, she does look like she's in good shape! ^.^

Nice finds Taf! They all look very cute :) Winter Snow is a pretty G3, I haven't really seen her before.

Thanks all :) I've not seen Winter Snow at the toy fair before. G3 are very common there, and quite common still at carboot sales, but the Seasons don't show up all that often. I actually saw a couple of Winter Snows this time around though - must be her time?

In any case, I hope to find her a good home come Eastertime. :) She is very pretty - much nicer than Crystal Clone in all respects ;)

The one in the donkey pose? She was new to me too. Apparently she's called Sunshine Blossoms, and she seems to have come with some kind of set but...yeah. O.o.

Thanks! And yeah, it is pretty busy. I arrive just as the queue is going in, which is nice, due to the time of my train, but getting through the crowds is always a challenge. I know one of the regular pony sellers, though, who my G3 ponies mostly came from and who usually does a deal on price for me because I come often - so that helps.

I try not to spend too long there though. An hour and a half is about my limit ;)

I do it for the ponies >.>

I saw a lot of G1 there, but I try not to buy too much in the way of doubles. I rescued Honeycomb because she gave me a lonely look, lol, but I left some other really nice ponies including an intact pocket friends pony which someone bought not long after (I wonder if it was someone here? That would be awesome!). There was also a guy taking a photo of a box of G1 for his partner back home...;) I hope they had some luck too.

Congrats!! The spring ponies are always the most interesting color schemes. Honeycomb looks so sweet, too!

If she is, it's the first I heard of it ;)

Edit to add - some google investigation suggests she came from K-Mart with a pony called Fancy Flora, who I have also never heard of. But although K-Mart isn't a store over here, I do remember that we had a lot of the Lickity/Portobella set in Woolworths here for a while before they turned up over there, because K-Mart had some financial trouble around that time or something? So maybe the same happened here. Although two of the other ponies I got were Target ponies, apparently, and we def. didn't get those, so maybe some of the ponies at the fair this week started their life in the US o.O.
