Wow! Finding that Pinkie Pie and for that price is something out of my dreams!  :drunk:
Love her lots for us all.

I think he is a little uncomfortable with it, but he's never expressed anything negative about my collecting. He teases me about it.  :P
I think the only thing he dislikes is the prices that some of my grails can go for. I think it frustrates him that he can't go pick them up for me for no more than $30 or so to make me happy. He (and sometimes even me) gets overwhelmed that a little vinyl horse toy can go for $100+ sometimes.

Pony Corral / Re: What Makes You Lose Interest In Ponies? . . .

I suffer from anxiety and depression and sometimes the two working together will cause me to lose interest in the things that make me happy. It's a very sad feeling. I feel like I'm play-acting: I went from "Wow somebody on the Arena got one of my favorite ponies, I'm so jealous/happy for them!" to not feeling anything. Also, money...

Sometimes it causes me to grasp at a new obsession, a new thing to collect or learn about.

In the end though I always remember that learning about ponies and having my own collection really does make me happy.

I don't collect G4 but I do enjoy watching the show...that is until unwanted exposure to the brony culture causes me to lose all interest periodically. Basically what Bothvar said.

Congrats on your grail, also, AWESOME MITZI!  I can't find any dolls of her anywhere.

Breyer is right, the blue eye kitty is the DSI version. I'm very happy to have her. c:
It's a goal of mine to find my original Tawny, though! Even looking at that different tush tag triggered a level of nostalgia in me.

I like Swift Heart Rabbit and Work of Heart Bear.  ^.^ I just got in an 1984 Swift Heart in the mail!
It's my opinion that Swift Heart is genderfluid because of the many times they've used him and her.

Sometimes I wondered what exactly was inside them that made them purr. I thought it was really unique that they were weighted with water, made them feel much more realistic.
They're also awesome toys to play with, their paws were perfect and weighted as well. I loved posing mine and making them do all sorts of things. I think I either had more than one or eventually ruined my first and was really upset so my family bought me another because the calico one brings memories too.
I cannot wait to get mine in the mail.  :happy:

My playset Sprinkles looks very much like yours on the right and has noticeably limp hair compared to most of my other ponies.

Edit: Here is the Sprinkles I purchased from Ponyology on left and the mail order version is on right:

I'm really happy to see everybody remembering these and loving them as much as I did.

I don't collect them myself, but I do pick them up when I find them locally.  There are several on my sales page for $15 each and I think I actually have a Tawny to add. 

EDIT:  I'm not sure if the one I have is Tawny or not - the pattern of her white seems a little different and she has blue eyes.  Here's a pic:

Hey, I might be able to afford that! I'll message you.
I don't really know the difference between the blue eyes kitten and the brown eyes kitten. It's a little difficult to find information on these.

I found this online about the recall:

I remember Sky Dancers! I heard they were recalled once too and thought it was ridiculous but many people said they were hurt by theirs.

When I was a very young girl I had a certain kitten toy that I dragged around everywhere. Her name was Tawny and she had glass eyes that eventually busted because I gave her so much love. I received the nickname "AllyKat" because of my attachment to this particular toy. She purred with what seemed like marbles and she had some sort of liquid (faint memory here) pouch in her tummy that gave her weight.

Anyway, this childhood toy stands out in my mind very prominently. I was browsing tumblr one day and I finally found what the toy was called!

Kitty Kitty Kittens!

I later found out that the particular toy I had was recalled. I remember seeing and hearing about the recall.

Anyway, do any of you collect these adorable things? I sadly no longer have my beloved Tawny. Even if I found her it's safe to say she's ruined. The prices on these on Ebay are stunningly high looking...

Here's a really nice picture of Tawny from tumblr user cosmicgirlfriend:

Really stirs my nostalgia. I'm so sad that these are too pricey for me. The ones I find are in the $50 range.

I would have definitely picked Confetti if the others were listed here, but instead I chose Sunlight. I love that light blue color.  ^.^
