Rare G1?
« on: May 16, 2019, 02:15:27 PM »
I purchased a G1 from Goodwill which I was able to identify on Google after a brief search. Tootsie isn't common to see online. Is she rare? Because I thought only mail orders and late G1s were only considered that.

Nah, Tootsie's pretty common as far as I know ^u^ Still, it's pretty awesome that you found a G1 pony at Goodwill! Congrats!

I'm not really an expert in pony rarities but I would assume she'd be more on the common side? Given she's from the same set as Posey, Cherries Jubilee, and Lickety-Split. Earlier G1s on average are usually more common, but again I'm not an expert by any means.

Awesome find!

Tootsie is not super rare but also not the most common.  A lot of the ponies from that year are a bit harder to find (probably due to being the 2nd wave of a set from the previous year).  Except the Baby Ponies, which are from that year and are pretty common.

But anyway, congrats!  It's so hard to find G1 ponies in the wild anymore!

Defining G1 rarity is a complex business :D I think Tootsie is harder to find than many of her set but they're quite a popular set. But as others have said, finding any G1 in a second hand store these days is unusual, so you did great. Tootsie also has a pretty colour scheme :D

It's a good rule of thumb to go by that rarer ponies tend to be towards the end of the toyline, but I agree that Tootsie is probably one of the harder to find from her line. I don't tend to see her as often as CJ, at least.
Perhaps if the set were a little more hard to find overall, she would be the Mimic/Blueberry Baskets of the set.  :P

My rule of thumb is if you type in "My Little Pony (name)" into eBay and there's tons of results, it's not that rare...

She is not as common as the rest of the set, but she's not hard to find or rare...

She's fairly common, but that might depend on where you live in the world.

Oh! I forgot about White Tootsie. Isn't she Italian?

There is a HK one and an Italian one. The UK didn't get either so I may be mistaken about this but I think the HK one shows up in Scandinavia (Maybe SA?) and the Netherlands and the Italian one more in the Netherlands/Benelux area and France...

I think some of those places also had green Tootsie though, not sure which.

We just had green, like you guys :)

Congrats on your find.  Any G1 found in the wild is awesome in my books :)

I think Scandinavia just got the white Tootsies. The white HK one is rather common here, I've seen like three while merely thrifting in the last two years and I've only seen less than 10 ponies that much when thrifting. But I see her less online,  so for me she isn't the MOST common, that goes to Tootie Tails, Confetti, baby Surprise and Tulip.

I don't know a thing of the normal Tootsie thoigh.

I´m also quite sure White Tootsie only was sold in Scandinavia. Ivé found a few here.  :)

Anyway Congrats on finding a G1 in the wild! She is a Beautiful pony.  :)
