Just saw an article where the Basic Fun CEO talked about the effects of the US-China tariffs (upcoming in December) on production.

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/08/30/basic-fun-ceo-jay-foreman-to-keep-production-in-china-despite-trump.html?fbclid=IwAR0j96HBp4i2h2-ml1iimOn30W1zaIOsvxtuKoC3KRTqCB7suRQXcexQCB8

I encourage everyone to watch the video clip as well as reading the article.  It's only 7 minutes long and is very informative. It lays out the struggles that small / medium business in general are going to face with the tariffs and specifically the struggles of Basic Fun, which of course are relevant to anyone collecting the retros.
Aww... I hope it doesn't go as far as that.  But I have to agree with him, there doesn't seem to be an end game.  He's been talking about this for months.

Popped into London this morning, so took a stroll to JL Oxford St and asked one of the staff where the ponies were - she looked on her tablet and said they were out of stock. I had a quick search amongst the shelves, but no ponies  :(

Didn't have time to go to Hamleys as I was meeting a friend for lunch then had to zip home in time for the school-run  ^.^

My Target got the endcap back, but it's all just the CP and first set of rainbows.

At Entertainer? That's interesting, they weren't on the original list. I wonder if they're gearing up for Christmas. Great news!

A few people have, they are starting to trickle into the stores now. Accordingly none in my area have the new case. Does anyone know the DCPI that you can track if your store has them?

I'm not currently in easy walking reach of a JL which is annoying - the one where I was in London was pretty quick off the mark with new rainbows. The fact Pinwheel vanished off UK amazon may be a good or a bad sign, if they are going to list them properly or if they are not...
