These are cute and very popular, some of the harder to find colours go for quite a bit too.

I have one Takara fakie baby :)

I’d probably mostly want a yellow or pink one or one that looks like one of the real takara babies I already own one but their too cute and I just have to get more i wouldn’t really think of them as nirvana ponies since their fakies but I’d still love to own more

I have the yellow body  and pink hair version :) Some of the Takara babies are more well made and convincing than others.

You are right that they aren't nirvana ponies as they are knock offs :)

Yeah I have two, a yellow one and a green one, but they're of the lower end quality, you'd never mistake them for the real deal. Both have purple hair, the awful kind of hair you see on many fakies, it's very thin and frizzy. I've been considering rehairing them but never got to round to it... For the time being I'm not willing to part with them, though, despite their flaws. They are pretty cute!

I hope you can find one :heart:

Yeah when I got mine I was a little disappointed because of how difficult the hair is to work on and it was really squishy I’m worried of it falling it out I felt like someone should’ve told me before getting one but their extremely cute is there a good place to find them I’ve so far sadly seen them only everywhere but English sites or sites I use

Mine has really thin, knotty hair, I have rehaired quite a few over the years for people. You have to be careful when rehairing as the plastic can be thin and soft.

I never re haired a pony before and I wouldn't try on mine because it looks like the head isn't attached that well and I don't want it falling off without being able to put it back on the biggest problem is probably the frizz and it looks like mine might be having hair loss issues
