Ripple’s puffy sticker and backcard... i find the other seaponies, but the few times I’ve seen Ripple’s I am either too late or the seller don’t ship outside their country. I have been looking for her puffy and backcard since 2006.... I mean that is more than a decade :blink:

I tend to find the baby ponies everywhere! Especially baby CC, baby Glory and baby Firefly. I adore them though, they are cute and brings back tons of childhood memories :heart:

It took me a really long time to get Ripple's backcard as well. I eventually had to buy her with all her accessories (no sticker) at ponycon to get it. I don't know why she's such a pain since I didn't have any trouble getting Sunshower MOC but Ripple? Even just the backcard took a very long time. *shrug*. I am assuming since you mention the sticker you mean the card that came with that, but honestly, I don't see the US card around (or US Ripple) MOC either very much.

The UK one is a childhood pony for me and so I would still like her MOC.

I've never seen her sticker for sale I don't think, either. I still have my childhood one thankfully (it's glued like a vice to the tower of DC, but I have it, so that's something) but it seems like a lot of the 1987 puffy stickers are a pain to find...even the ones that don't grab the expensive attention like the MB ones do.

Did you guys have that set over there?

@Taffeta: We had the US set in Norway, and she is a childhood pony of mine. I would like both cards though. Either- or just one - I am desperate :lol: We didn’t get her puffy, but I am a puffy nut so I really want it. She is the last of my childhood ponies that had a puffy (well, her UK counterpart did at least :p) so it is like a holy grail to me. I have seen her puffy two times, one time on eBay and another time in a Swedish BST site. I kick myself every time I think about it, but neither of the sellers shipped to Norway so I couldn’t even bid on them  :cry:

I empathise. I had 3 Mountain Boys as a kid but do not have the stickers for any of them still. I moved a couple of times in 1987-8 because of Dad's job. I have all my other childhood pony stickers. Just not those three. And I can't afford to replace them, obviously. I don't have their cards either, but I can live with that since I have A MB card in my collection. But it hurts losing those stickers.

I wish I could get Sunshower and Ripple's stickers off DC's tower without breaking them, but it isn't gonna happen. :/

The only Heart Throb and Surprise I ever found in the UK were also both Italians.
They must've escaped from your part of the world looking for a better life where they were a bit more unique xD.

But never seen their HK versions here. I had to import them :/

Many: Cotton Candy and Moondancer (G1)
No: Lemon Drop (HK G1) - took forever to get one, and she came without a tail

It's weird, I found streaky and ringlet easily (I actually got streaky in the charity store I work in, such a good find) But it took me forever to find raincurl and stripes. And now that I DO have all of them, suddenly they keep appearing on eBay. It seems like the rainbow curl ponies availability yo-yos a lot?

Also, I found powder easily enough despite not being sold in the UK as far as I know (in all fairness, I had to do quite a bit of restoration work on her) but I cannot for the life of me find skyflier anywhere! I don't know if she was sold in the UK or not, but there's no way I'm paying eBay's international shipping prices for a skyflier from the US.

Neither Powder or Skyflier were sold in the UK :(

@Jorgito - they are both much loved here ;) But because all those characters are rare here in any format, they retain some of their novelty and mystique :D

The Heart Throb has really pretty dark red curly hair. I like the regular HT, but the Italian one is quite special in my opinion :D.
