Post-Vacation Pony Haul
« on: August 06, 2020, 02:49:41 AM »
I just came back from a vacation to Rehoboth Beach. There's this vintage toy shop there called Yesterday's Fun that had quite a selection of older ponies, so I brought some back to add to my slowly growing herd.

First up, we have Steamer, my first boy pony! His hair is very faded, but I think he honestly looks better with the white hair. He has a small marking next to his symbol I couldn't get off, and a small regrind spot that's hidden behind his hind leg. Otherwise, he cleaned up very nicely!

The second G1 I got was Parasol. When I got her, she was very filthy, but luckily all but a purple dot on her ear came off in the sink. Other then that, she's a very pretty pony!

They also had a bin of G3's for 2-3 dollars, so I picked up a few as well.

I'm trying to re-obtain the G3's from childhood I gave away. I got this Fluttershy to replace my long-gone childhood one. Her hair was extremely tangled and wild, but once I gave it a good grooming, she looks perfect!

Here's Sparkleworks. She had a few spots I was able to easily clean up. Her tinsel isn't perfect, but looks a lot better than I thought it would.

Whistle Wishes had a bit more flaws I couldn't fix. There's some crayon marks on the non-display side of her neck, and her yellow streak is cut short. She's still a gorgeous unicorn though.

And then there's Sweetberry. The G3's at the store came sealed in little plastic baggies. I picked up Sweetberry because she looked spotless with relatively untangled hair from inside the bag. When I went to clean her up, it turned out she was the most problematic pony of the haul. Even after a good conditioning, her hair is very dry, rough, and frizzy, although it is still better than what it was before. She also appears to have a bit of tail rust.

All in all, I'm very pleased with this haul, and am happy to add more G1s to my herd, since I only had Sparkler prior, as well as some cute G3s.
