Price check on alt birthflower ponies please!
« on: September 10, 2021, 06:51:57 AM »
I’ve got two alt birthflower ponies (March and May) and I would like to know their market value as I’m trying to convince my sister Lily is way too good to be passed on to her kids for playing with!

I’ve (hopefully) linked to the picture below.  If not, I will upload one later. 

Otherwise, Lily is in nice condition. She has a forelock trim and dry tail ends.  A bit of pink on her nostril and hind leg. Symbols and eyes are lovely.

Daffodil is gorgeous and near mint with  still has her original brush.

Also, can anybody recommend software or an app that they use to inventory their collection? I would hate to die and family sell my ponies for what I said I paid for them

The photo hasn't worked, sorry. I have a Wordpress site that I use for everything, but it's not an inventory. You might need photos with names, then an excel spreadsheet. I should do this too, but I know I will never get around to it! As for a price check, I'd say for the normal pink and white ones maybe £30 if in NM condition? Alt. birthflowers you can double that easily but a lot depends on the month as well since they are different colours and differ in popularity. July Water Lily is often pricey. I saw one go for £120. I haven't bought one recently but I've been looking at prices. Regardless of condition I wouldn't give them to kids anyway, because apparently they contain chemicals that are no longer used in kid's toys for safety reasons.

Thanks Artemisia! I’ve added a link to the ponies.

Thanks for the heads up about kids playing with old toys. I guess it’s not surprising. Do you know where I can read more about that?

I would love an app/photo gallery, to inventory my ponies.  I guess excel will have to do for now!

This is a general article about vintage toys: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/toys-seventies-and-eighties-could-be-poisoning-your-children-10125415.html

And this looks like a really nice article on today's toys from a USA perspective: https://48h57c2l31ua3c3fmq1ne58b-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Phthalates_Report.pdf

I used to work in a museum and have an interest in plastics, so I wouldn't call myself an expert I just take an interest. I thought you might like the extra excuse ;)

I'd love to own both those ponies. I might even take more drastic intervention like kidnapping them in that situation! :grabby hands:

Snupps is a great app for collection inventory! It can be accessed as both an app & as a webpage. You can set the items you post to either public or private, and there are private functions within the public settings as well (example: your pic & description can be public, but value info can be private).

Wow daffodil is one of the most htf from the set, in my opinion - a rarity in nice condition as she is so prone to pindot.
Normally I would say alt birthflowers sit around $150 -200 USD but I wouldn't be surprised at all if daffodil sold for around $300 - 400 usd

There's always a market for the alt birthflowers as they had such a limited release worldwide.

I would also echo what Artie said about the safety of kids and G1 ponies. We really just don't know what the state of the plastic is like now.

I'm not hugely organised but I have my pony collection listed in an excep spreadsheet, plus my backcards as well because that's a separate undertaking. It's really hard to value the collection that way with prices fluctuating and ebay auctions etc only being on the server for a limited time. It's difficult to collect a lot of evidence about individual value, especially if it's a large collection.
