I wish these were available in Canada :(

I'm trying to get my niece a bunch of ponies for her birthday and I'm trying to get her a good mix of colors, poses and types. At Target today I got Confetti, Tickle, and the Pretty Parlor. I really wanted to include Sunbeam and Bubbles too, but couldn't find any at either Target in my area - not even on the Target website! So I was just wondering if they still even sell those two in stores. I'm not about to start buying secondhand because I see that they're already going for much higher than retail.

If anything this is a good sign that Basic Fun is doing well though! Honestly I love these sets so much I'd collect them myself if I had the space. It's so exciting to see them in such lovely vintage packaging looking all beautiful, clean, and vibrant! Honestly it's almost surreal - like something out of a dream.

The Earth ponies set has only been out since around the beginning of this year so you should be able to find them if you keep checking I would think. As for the Pegasus and Unicorn set, I don't know about other people but I only saw them a couple times and the last time was several months ago. Maybe it's just my area but they seem to be really hard to get. Personally I'm still holding out hope that they will be more widely distributed in the coming months. I mean, Targets I've been to do still seem to be restocking the original 6 so I feel like it would make sense that other sets would be out longer. I hope.

I checked Target today and they had restocked the Earth Ponies set and the CP set. No sign of the set with Confetti. I think my Target won't restock the unicorn/Pegasus set. I haven't seen them for months either.

I feel like the Unicorn / Pegasus set was experiencing the Second Wave Curse, where a lot of retailers had ordered enough of the 1st set of Rainbow ponies (which had the same product number) that they didn't run out of them for a long time . . . By the time they finally did run out the 2nd set of Rainbow ponies (which ALSO has the same product number) was almost available.

Yeah, Saturday strikes me as an odd time to restock shelves. Most retail chains are short-staffed, so where do they find the time on their busiest day? Either way, it's true! They restocked at my Target too. There is now two Seashells, two Applejacks, a Bowtie, and a Bubbles. So I snatched Bubbles up pronto!

Now I can send my niece a nice colorful birthday mail filled with ponies - specifically Peachy, Confetti, Tickle, and Bubbles. My sis tells me she is obsessed with anything relating to horses, ponies, and unicorns right now... so I'm sure she'll love these. The best thing is with so many of them being made so far, I could totally send her a new addition for her collection for every major holiday. I hope Basic Fun keeps doing this forever, haha!!

I'm losing hope that we'll get these in Canada  :cry: So I caved and ordered the uni/peg set from amazon US.

It seems very strange to me that Canada isn’t getting these. :blink: I hope future waves will be released over there, at any rate.

Either way, congrats on your new ponies!

I don’t know what Amazon.uk is playing at I ordered Moondancer and a Glory from them last Monday and they haven’t dispatched them. Did they just give them to other people because they’re now temporarily out of stock. I brought them and I should get them not some other person.

This has happened before with retros on preorder. I suspect there was a delay in them receiving the stock and so that's now passed on to you. Has the ETA changed on your order?

It says this on the order

Delivery estimate: We need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate. We'll notify you via e-mail as soon as we have an estimated delivery date.

I bet they gave the ones I pre ordered to some other person, or someone got greedy and purchased them all to sell.

 Baby Glory and Moondancer have been waiting a long long long long long long time for their mothers.

I'm very very upset and angry at them.

I doubt it is that. They get the stock from the US and the same thing happened with the rainbows as well at first. The release date for these is I think meant to be July so I guess they got their dates wrong and were a bit too ambitious.

Fingers crossed they are in stock soon.

Hey... Has anyone opened up a Basic Fun pony to see if they decided to go for total accuracy and use metal washers? XD
