<3 Hello! <3
« on: April 08, 2019, 03:25:43 AM »
My name is Ashleigh, I have actually been to many of these pony sites A LONG time ago! When Kimberly Shriner was first bringing up her geocities site actually. (I see she has since taken down her site? And written a few books? Wow...)

My childhood collection started in the 1984 time frame. I have checked in periodically throughout my life with the collecting world. Recently I just realized that the G1 ponies were released... and I am interested in collecting again. I was an only child until I was 8, and spent most of my time playing with my ponies. I had a Dream Valley Estates that was my childhood holy grail, but my mom sold it in a garage sale. (Isn't that the story with SO many of us?)

Now I have all of my ponies packed away, but hoping that I will have a little girl some day that will enjoy all the ponies I have collected. I especially hope that someday we can share "opening" the G2 and G3s that I have collected... and now these "retro classics" that I hope to add also! If I don't have a kiddo though, maybe I can share with a niece or nephew. We will see where life takes us. :-)

Some of my favorites are Gusty, Fizzy, Wind Whistler, Firefly, Sundance, Princess Serena, Glory, and Ribbons. They are the ones that I have the strongest memories of either playing with, watching in movies, or listening to on cassette.

I will probably just read more than post- but I think it is so very very fun to see such passion for the same toys that I dearly loved still going strong. In a time where the internet can be not always a pretty place, how nice to find a happy place!

Hi Ashleigh, welcome to the Arena! It's nice to meet you :)
Ha, I guess a lot has changed since you've been around here! Yeah, Dream Valley is down. While it is nostalgic and will be missed, it did have some wrong information, the year system she used doesn't fit the rest of the world's releases (like the UK and Europe and stuff), and it perpetuated rumors and a lot of incorrect information in it's earlier days... anyway, we do have some new pony sites ;)

You have nice taste in ponies! I love Gusty, Firefly, and Glory too :)

I hope you enjoy the Arena, I'll see you around :D

Hi and welcome :wave:

I grew up with G1 ponies too and I have fond memories of playing with them with my best friend. I am so sorry to hear your play set was sold at a garage sale - and yes, so many here have similar stories.  At least you still have your ponies though :) :)   I hope you enjoy the forum :happy:
