Didn't expect to find these!
« on: September 15, 2020, 09:24:37 PM »
I popped into Target on a whim today for the first time since before the Coronavirus, and was surprised to find these 2! I had previously said that despite Sparkler being one of my favorite ponies, I didn't want the Basic Fun version because her hair was different, but once I saw her I had to have her, and I like her this way! These were the last 2 ponies they had, other than one Tickle, and I felt bad leaving her behind (she's not super hard to find, I hope?!) but I had just spent $80 at Hobby Lobby right before my Target trip and couldn't justify spending $30 on ponies (the only reason I could justify buying Sparkler and Gusty was because my oil change was unexpectedly free today!) Anyways...I was so excited that I just had to share  :biggrin:

Are there 2 versions of Sparkler?

Mine has no red in the ponytail. And the forelock is also different, less red.

Yep, the red tailed one is an earlier batch and all later Sparklers will have no red in the tail!
Congrats on your new ponies!

I think there are! Yours is the first picture I've seen without the red in the tail and the traditional stripe in the mane...someone was saying on the thread about Heartthrob's colors that maybe they changed her because people were complaining that she wasn't like the original? Did you buy yours online or in the store?

I have only seen the one with the purple tail in French boxes.

Ours are US import because the language is the same so mine is bicolour hair, which personally I prefer.

The French seller is scalping on prices on the UK site so I avoided their listings. I didn't look see if their pictures show an all purple tail.

No they don't.

 :blink: That is the same seller, where I got my Sparkler. Maybe he uses an old picture? Or maybe he has both models?

Hmm...that's weird. I wonder if you could specifically request which version you wanted. I rarely order from Amazon, and never have from a private seller before, so I  don't know if you can ask the seller a question before you buy like you can on ebay or not. It will be interesting to see if the bicolored version will continue to be offered, or eventually they will be phased out to the purple-only one. Makes me glad I got the one I did while it's still available...I actually really love her and I don't think I'll seek the other version out. Eventually I'll find an original vintage Sparkler to add to my collection.
