I came home from school one day and my mom bought four ponies. Two were for me (plus Cotton Candy Cafe!) and two were going to a classmate for her birthday. I ended up choosing Sunny Daze and Wysteria. :) I gave up Rainbow Dash and I don't remember who the other pony was. The Glitter Celebration ponies were the hardest to find to complete my set, I got them all at once! They were the only ones I've seen that had the free Charming Birthday VHS too, I didn't know they were supposed to come with movies.

My friend ended up getting Celebration Castle for her birthday and I was soooo jealous!! The balloon was so cool!! :lol: Until I was able to get it I played with my ponies in an appropriately sized wooden dollhouse.

Most likely Daisyjo, or at least she was one of the first G3s. I got back into Pony collecting in April 2005, when G3 were brand new in the shops. So while I was buying G1 on eBay, I popped into shops & found charity shop G1s & new toy shop G3s. Daisyjo was one of the new shop G3s I bought. I love her colouring & have a soft spot for daisies.
My Mascots (so far): Twisty Tail, G2 Trixiebelle, Starcatcher, Twilight Sparkle. All variants & pictures of these are appreciated. Piccies courtesy of Griffin & Blumiere

My very first G3 (and very first MLP ever) was Sunny Daze! She was actually a gift. The very first G3 that I bought with my own money was Scootaloo second-hand in Akihabara, Japan.

 :happy:

The first g3 I was given (and also the first pony I was ever given) was Tulip Twinkle. (It also might've been a breezie 3-pack as I'm not sure which exactly came out first/which I received first but I usually consider Tulip Twinkle my first pony). I remember loving ponies and always wanting more, but I can recall never being able to find them on shelves. Whether this is true or just me as a child not looking in the right places, I have no idea, but I do remember the first g3 I actually remember consciously asking for and buying was at a yard sale! It was only in like 2010-2011 ish and it was Strawberry Reef, Skywishes, and Star Catcher (the one with the fabric wings, I was already gifted the second version of her LOL).

My first was a double set with Autumn Skye and either Butterscotch or Minty.  It was the very first set I saw in stores.

My first G3 was a Rainbow Dash, which my uncle gave to me. The first G3 I bought with my own money was Pretty Pop, who I saved up my allowance for.

I was an active collector when G3s came out, so I hit every TRU in the area when they were first reported to be out.  If a TRU had one pony in stock, it had them all, so my first G3 was everything that was available at launch(including the Cotton Candy Cafe).

What I remember most about G3 was being the first in the world to get some ponies.  Due to some distribution quirk, I was blessed to live near the TRU that got new stuff in first. Often, first in the world.  I would check the place daily.  If I found something new, I’d rush home and take pics to share with the community.  Some items we knew were coming, but occasionally I’d stumble on a pony nobody had any idea even existed.  Sparklesnap was one of those. No announcement, no brochure pics, nothing. She was just there one day. I was the first to find the Star Catcher with video set(posted pics of the pony and screenshots of the video).  Half the G3 Birthflowers, the first wave of Scooter ponies, Hidden Treasure, and a few others were some of my “first finds”.

Sweetie Belle, with extra markings, in fall 2008.  :satisfied: I was 16yo and back then it took a while to admit I want to collect ponies, heh. :,D
