Congrats Dragonflitter!  I know it can be really hard to ask, but Target employees always seem pretty friendly.   I’m so glad you were able to do it!

I also hate having to ask employees to help me find something. Congrats to everyone that is finding the backpack. I'd love to get one but since I'm on a really tight budget right now I'm sure they'll be long gone by the time I can get one.

I would still like to go. I never get out of the house anymore. I mean the collectable area is always picked clean but I would still like to look  in it.

Edit: We have no car and it's a pretty long bus ride from here.

Um there's reasons I can't just ride the bus there. I mean no need to be presumptuous about what I can and can't do.

I'm sure you could find a way if you really wanted to.

a long bus ride = long bus ride. Not the other reasons you didn't share that potentially are prohibiting you.

Ok please stop assuming things about me. I can't go it's not possible for me.  Maybe months down the road but not atm.

It's a busy bus and I'm not able to stand 45 minutes which I would have to.

I'm not really assuming, I'm trying to offer advice/encouragement. You mentioned a bus-- so that's why I mentioned something about it because I thought it was potential option.

I'm maybe in a similar position with the unipegs and Smyths if that's where they show up.

I can't drive (navigation, etc) but where my parents live it's not hard to get there - there's not a very frequent bus but there is a bus and it's not too bad walking over from the centre.

But I'm going back to London next week for a longish spell. So that will of course be when they're in stock.

So where I lived last year, I had a bus that went almost direct to a retail park that had a nice big Smyths store. That was in North London. Now I live a half hour outside of central London, and south, not north. But for some reason that one is still my closest Smyths?! So to get there would basically be a train, a tube, a bus...and back again. And I know there are other ponypeople in that area, so it might be a wasted trip anyway :'(

...Though if they come in stock, I probably will find an excuse to do it anyway. Because, you know...Medley >.>.

The things we do for ponies O.o.

I'm hoping that one of the toymasters in closer bus range, or John Lewis might have them, but right now Smyths is the only one putting out those indicators.

I've heard other people have found them in stores here, not just glitterball, so they must be somewhere...><

I mean, it's not like I can't relate. But sometimes when there's a will, there's a way. (Although I've been a commuter all my life so usually distance doesn't phase me-- it's all the other things).

But I bit the bullet and got one from the back today. I got tired of waiting, and too worried I'd miss my opportunity. :) I'll still be checking often in case you still need some Taffeta. I'm watching clearance on some lights.

I'm pretty sure Target has me wrapped around their little finger. I wound up with patio furniture that was 60% off that I would of never noticed had I not been in the store so often. >_<;

Your visits to Target sound like mine to Dunelm (which sells towels, cushions, bedding, etc stuff here). Because all the time I was in London that was right next door to Smyths. Yeah, it didn't end well. I have too many cushions now...:/

Thanks for the thought :D I wish Basic Fun were as helpful in their distribution as ponypeople are on here with helping each other get stuff...

I've also commuted a lot and was thrown (not literally, xD) onto tube trains as a kid (which are not pleasant really) so I acclimatised. I hate rush hour but I guess I learned to handle transport as a way to get to ponies..?

In London the transport is pretty frequent and I managed to do in a half day a trip around four towns around the edges of London looking for ponies. Here it would take me the same amount of time just to get to and from the Smyths by my folks' home, as that's still a 7 mile plus trip and an irregular bus, so it can be a pain, especially if it doesn't end with success.

But I sympathise with gemini_pony if she can't stand for long periods on buses. Standing on buses is never fun.

So I just finished binge watching season 3.  No mlp toys make an appearance, just the back pack.  However, the quote on ST AJ’s box is more extensive.   I’ll put it in spoilers for those who don’t want any spoilers.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
