Title: Surprise flavored water figurines- Any info/collectors?
Post by: Strawberry Swirl on August 19, 2021, 11:43:19 PM
So a week or so ago I got one of those bottle flavored waters for kids where they have a capsule attached to the bottle with a little figurine inside. Does anybody else bother to collect these?

I normally pick them up whenever I see them but for some reason I can't find any information about them (even on MLPMerch). According to the pamphlet there's 20 of them in all and I'd like to get all the versions of Rarity, Rainbow and AJ. But due to the lack of discussion about these things I get the feeling I might be the only one who even cares lol.

I do believe I have a couple extra as well if anyone were to be interested in trading but honestly I don't think it's likely someone would want it.


*Update*
Decided to add an image of these things just in case people don't know what I'm talking about lolol.

Those are really cute.  I don't think I've seen those drinks before only the ones that have the character toppers.

How interesting! I don't recognize these, but I have a tiny applejack that looks really similar to the standing one seen in your collection. I can't remember where she came from, but I know I've never had or seen these drinks before. I wonder if the toys are attached to multiple products? Hmm

The drinks started showing up around 2016. MLP merch has some of them listed as surprise drinks.

I have two from early on, the AJ winking pencil topper and a Twilight puzzle. I was disappointed to not get a figure so I never bought more of them. I have them around somewhere & I do remember them coming in a yellow capsule with a pamphlet.

Website found! These do not have the pencil toppers. I'm surprised nobody else has seen them. Are they exclusive to the midwest us or something?

Is one of those TS's sitting down??? Because I'd be interested in her (maybe the standing one & the pencil topper too)

OMG these are so cute! I want them!! Never seen them before (I've seen a Transformer version of the drink once, online, but never a MLP).

edit: Just had a proper look at the site and I've gotta repeat myself - OMG - the lying down ponies!! I'm in love!! If anyone could help me get my hands on a couple of these I'd love you forever! ;A;

I had some but they were so easy to loose that I just kind of lost them!
I never had a pencil topper but got AJ and Rainbow Dash at least. The standing Rainbow Dash actually has no wings despite having them in the pamphlet.

If you have somebody in the US that can receive it and then ship to you, then that would be ok, otherwise I can't guarantee due to Covid.

I prefer Firefly flavor! It has an extra zap in it yanno?

I found 4 of these at Walmart.  They were close to the  juice brand that has the character toppers and in a flat box.  If I hadn't been looking for them I would have not noticed them.  I don't know what characters I got yet.

Surprise flavour would be fizzy, while Firefly flavour would have spice & burn your tongue. Fireball flavour would be even stronger

I like to think it just makes whatever the food is carbonated. Even if it's something you would never EVER expect to be carbonated like roast beef or something.

I have a few older ones that were out 3 years ago but haven't seen these. I wouldn't buy them most likely as I'd only want AJ and Celestia plus I feel bad pouring out the water but it tastes very bad to me. :( Mlpmerch hasn't been reporting the little G4 merch out now.

I have a standing rarity, do you have a extra Celestia you'd be willing to trade for?

I was going to buy a few more today but the store had them on the top of the highest shelf.  The employees were rearranging the juice aisle while I was there.  I'm hoping they will move the juice back down to one of the lower shelves.  There wasn't another case on the other shelves that I saw.

It does look like folks are finding them at Walmart, so I went to the website to check availability... and it just says 'out of stock' for me. Maybe it's not carried in the West Coast stores? :x

I'm sorry you weren't able to find them yet Snapdragon.  I checked a Walmart today but they didn't have the MLP versions. Instead they had Peppa Pig and PJ Masks.
