Title: VIP pets?
Post by: The-Extravagant-Pony on November 13, 2020, 05:22:29 PM
Does anyone own any of the VIP pets toys? I just found out about them and they look really adorable!

Original or new? :) I have most of the original release, I love them, especially Luna.

The newer ones are cute, I just wish they weren't blind packaged!! I LOVE that there's more colour variety this time, instead of most of them being the same peach colour, but I really don't like paying out that much for a surprise toy...

they're both brushable. I mean, the ones from 2013ish (*quick google* these (http://flyingpurplemonkfish.blogspot.com/2014/11/i-love-vip-pets-nyla.html)) or the ones currently on shelves? :)

I wish they would do more than dogs. It disappoints me when a line calls itself something with "pet" in the name but only does dogs. I would be all about them if there were cats.

They should definitely do cats too! And bunnies.

I am obsessed with them!!! I bought a whole case when my target had them, and I have 7 now lol. Gwen and lady Gigi are my favorites. There is a little trick to identifying them; if you look closely at the packaging in store it is a bit transparent around the eye area- so you can see the eye of the pet to determine which one you’re getting (but unfortunately not which version since there are two of each pet) but each case has one of each pet. Hope that helps!

Do you think you can share photos of them in comparison to MLP? I’d love to get an idea of their size!

Oooh thanks for sharing that tip, Eternia! :D I was tempted by the new ones but didn't really want to pay ~£10 on a gamble, might have to try that trick after lockdown <_< >_>

I remember wanting these when they first came out but they were too expensive...
I see the new ones at Walgreen's now. I kinda wanna get them to hybrid on a doll body.
