Title: What happened to the Fun at the Fair set?
Post by: EmBee on January 19, 2012, 11:17:34 PM
What ever happened to Fun at the Fair with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle G4 pack?

It came out last year but I never heard from anyone in the US that it got released in stores.  I think all the ones I've been seeing were ordered online...

Anybody? :what:

Never saw any of those sets in stores.
My only thought with the Fun at the Fair set is that there seemed to be some mix-ups (putting in Scootaloo when it was supposed to be Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle) so maybe they pulled them from stores?

I never saw either set in stores.

We had both in Canadian stores, but I don't remember hearing about it in the US. That's weird.

They were the only G4s I wanted.  I know another STL collector found a set here, but I looked in a couple different Targets and never saw them.  Oh well...

When did you find the school pals playset? I mean at least one of those sets poped up in the states.

I got the Fun At The Fair set on ebay a week or two ago MIB for $20 with a single MIB Cheerilee thrown in. Actually, it was someone here on the Arena's auction!

I know where they are!!!! Still on the shelves of UK supermarkets....we were absolutely inundated with these 2 sets last September - they are still on shelves now and each time I go in more have been added!

How odd, we have tons of that over here!

I don't think Austrailia got them either, since it was one of the things my trade partner wanted. :( Some folks find it redundant with the School Pals set but if you aren't sold on the walking pose fillies it's the only place for a regular Apple Bloom.

I think it showed up recently in Canada at TRU, so I believe that odds are it should be in the US soon if it arrives there.

If anybody wants help with getting these I'd be glad to help out. The fun at the fair and camping sets seem to be the only ones my TESCO stocks and they're currently reduced to £9.76(or something like that) I'm sick of seeing them and wish they'd get in something new.

Do you have the 'ponyville schoolhouse' set with Cheerilee there as well? I can't find it anywhere, but I want it so much!

The only place I ever found these in the UK was Sainsburys....I think I found it in 3 different ones...but never spotted it anywhere else...

I found the school pals at Target earlier this month, but I have not seen the actual school house or the camping set. O.o weird.
Title: Re: What happened to the Fun at the Fair set?

It seems that all the G4 stuff is only available for a while and then never be seen again...
Title: Re: What happened to the Fun at the Fair set?
Post by: PrincessNikki on January 20, 2012, 04:15:05 PM
Maybe they discontinued it to release the Cutie Mark Crusaders pack with Cherilee because it's cheaper and would sell more.

I bought the Fun at the Fair & RD Camping Trip sets at a local shop named "Zellers" (currently being bought out by Target, which is taking over 2013! YAY!). I think that was around October/November or so. They're also available at TRU shops around town. It seemed to me it took about 6 or 7 months for those sets to make it here ;P really hope School Pals & Cheerilee show up a little quicker :\

I haven't seen this set anywhere since I started looking for it (before Christmas). I haven't seen the Star Dreams and Applejack set either.  :( Maybe soon the US will get them?

We didn't get any new pack in Germany since the Pinkie Pie and Sweetie Belle set and Fluttershy's Nursery Tree pack. I got all my sets from friends in the US, that is frustrating...
Title: Re: What happened to the Fun at the Fair set?
Post by: cookhuman on January 20, 2012, 04:43:48 PM
I misspoke earlier...it was the School Pals set (3 babies & 1 adult) set that was found in MO, USA NOT the Fun at the Fair set.  Sorry for the confusion.
Title: Re: What happened to the Fun at the Fair set?
Post by: Scraleos on January 20, 2012, 04:55:03 PM
Yup, they must have sent all the sets to the uk! I'm sick of seeing them! XD only now they've gotten in Fluttershys Tree and the Sweets Boutique.

These have both been on my radar since appearing in the new and will be new thread. I've seen none of them pop up around my area.

Post by: apanda0622 on January 20, 2012, 05:14:23 PM
I got mine from Entertainment Earth and Hasbro also had it on their website, but I don' think it was ever released in stores in the US. I think Rainbow Dash's Camping Trip was the same situation.  I sold my Fun at the Fair on ebay a week or two ago to a member on here because I didn't want duplicates since I had the School Pals set now.

I got both of these sets online as well....

I haven't seen them around here, although I haven't been really looking for them. :P

Post by: CrystalCrown on January 21, 2012, 01:33:39 AM
i havent seen them at all in stores, not even the ponyville schoolhouse (which i wanted because its SO CUTE!)

Post by: ButtercreamDream on January 21, 2012, 02:14:42 AM
Both sets are out here (in Canada).  They are expensive though.  $16.99 plus tax, I think.  I found them at zellers only.

Post by: RAMChYLD on January 21, 2012, 03:22:00 AM
Well, they're still pretty common around the Klang Valley.I've seen them at various Toys R Us, Parkson and Isetan joints here.

I bought mine at a giant grocery store close to my house, where they also sell toys (store is called Maxi in Quebec). There were plenty around Christmas and they were a part of my stocking stuffers!
