Title: Playset documentation - *Updated* - Twist and Style petal parlor
Post by: RoseNoire on June 04, 2018, 10:32:18 PM
Hello everyone !
Well, I was wondering if there exists any throughout "technical" documentation for G3 playsets. As there seems to be none of them on the wiki.
Then, I am wondering if YOU want some, because I've just dismantled cleaned and documented the Twist and Style Petal Parlor for your great pleasure !

Here's the link to the tutorial (23 pictures), hope that helps !! -->

I also have Butterfly Island and Rainbow Wishes Amusement Park in my possession and they need some cleaning too. Tell me if you want to know about them in the future.

Have a nice day !

Rose

This would be amazing! All of my playsets need a thorough cleaning because they've been in storage since we moved house 5 years ago. I'm way to scared to dismantle it by myself, without instructions, because I'm skilled at breaking things :blush:

I almost feel like we need a how to section on this site.  Keep all of these kind of things around easy to find

Hasrro.com has quite a few playset instructions, you'd be amazed by a quick search what shows up...
click for playset manual search (https://corporate.hasbro.com/en-us/consumer-care/instructions/my-little-pony?%3Bhsb_doc_search_button=Search&limit=48)

You're right, I found the Twist and Style's instructions in no-time. https://www.hasbro.com/common/instruct/My_Little_Pony_Twist_&_Style_Petal_Parlor_61642.pdf :D
But I've been a little more in depth than the manual so I can access most of the pieces for an optimal cleaning. I really need to write this documentation, you made me really motivated. ^^

Wow I love this idea - though it would be a labor of love.  Once I documented all the screws and pins in the Transformers Animated toy line so I know it takes a lot of attention to detail to do this stuff and a plan for organizing the information so it is useful to everyone.  (In my project I learned that modern Hasbro toys have many fewer parts and fewer pins and screws - mostly replaced with friction clasps, etc.)

Well, I've just finished it. I really hope it's what you all wished for, it took me so much time and patience, but I did it.
Hope that helps and that it's enough.
If you have any more question, I will be happy to help you.
Tell me if you don't understand something, I'd be happy to edit my text to make it simpler.

Have a great day !

Rose.

Oh I missed the link!  Wow it looks great.  Thank you!

My response above was thinking you were going to write up technical documentation for *ALL* of the playsets. :)  That would be quite a project. 

You did a good job - I like the notations and arrows you added.

Thank you !
Well, I am able to do the same with my two other G3 playsets and maybe I will have more, I don't know yet. But yeah, my intention is to document every single one I come across.

I am really glad you like it, I really hope it's what people needed and that it's complete and clear enough.  :blush:

Have a good day ! =)

Thank you so much for this! While i was reading through this I think I realised why the breeze flower on mine no longer shuts fully, I didn't know you had to have a pony stand on the magnet... I used to just force it open and closed (I wasnt that careful as a child)! Maybe I can find a way to 'fix' the mechanics in mine so it works like it's meant to :lol:

I do hope you'll be able to fix it indeed. I'm curious as how yours looks like. Will you take pics of it ? (closeup on the flower,...) ^^
